Re: drop or bag the truck???

hmm, hundreds of dollars or thousands of dollars??

On the cheap you can drop it for around 100 bucks. Same way bagging your looking at close to a grand otherwise stuff gets dangerous.

Re: drop or bag the truck???

its a headache.... if you f**k it up.... if you take ur time, research, get good parts, and do it right, it is so much better than a static drop for a million reasons..... trust me, i have a bagged 98, and a static 4/5 2000

the problem is i want bags but cant afford it now bc i just got a dirt/street bike for 7 grand. i want to lower the truck for now and then maybe a year or two later bag the truck.

Eh **** it, drop it now and bag it later.

Dropping is cheap, easy to do and will give you some experience under the truck for when you do it for real.

Re: drop or bag the truck???

Yeah, sounds like you've given yourself the answer.

Lowering it is a lot cheaper than air suspension and you can still bag it later if you decide to.

I'm one of the people who isn't a fan of bags, and I've had two bagged trucks. But yeah, drop it for now. Enjoy a lowered truck, then if you still want to you can put air on it in a year or so.

Re: drop or bag the truck???

people, quit getting ahead of yourselves....if its a fugly ass truck to begin with, fix that first. Don't spend all your money on air, for an ugly ass truck. Get the truck straight, THEN worry about bagging it. Don't become a half assed painted, half assed bagged truck like half the people on this site...

Re: drop or bag the truck???

first bag the truck THEN sell the bags THEN drop it! it will look frickin sweet and THEN sell drugs to paint that damn thing another color! bags are nice but really it does get exspensive, personaly i would drop it ive been savin for a few yrs now, and had to stare at my parts for months and it sucks, plus you need time, place, tools, and if you drive it everyday well, shits gonna happen. and im not bagged jus yet but ill let ya know if its worth it.

Can you start another thread asking us if we think you should bag or drop that?

bad idea.

I've beat the hell out of my truck when I bagged it, dints and dings here and there. And the best part was my dad blistering the paint for me.
