As many of you have read, I've been saying I am going to bag my truck for a while now. Well the time has finally come! Graduation is a little more than a month away. I will have a BE in Electrical Engineering and I was just offered an amazing job that I never imagined would be possible.

So after saving up money, going through a little spell of good luck, and using my tax return, it's time to get this project under way!

The game plan:
I would like to start production on this near the end of april and hope to have it close to done in May. I don't have any experience welding and this is my first bagging project so I will have the help of my club - Exceeding Limits Truck Club. I plan on running a 225/40/18 tire. Using my stock control arms. Going to keep the inners in for the time being and I will look into relocating stuff in the engine compartment and removing the inners this winter.

The parts list:
Front
1/8" Airline - 50ft

1/2" Airline - 50ft.

96+ EDC kit

5 gallon tank (8 port)

200 PSI KP Single Gauge

(2) 200 PSI KP Dual Gauge

(8 pk) SMC 3/8" Valves
(2)
Airlift Dominators 2500's

SD Cups

PP ball joints (uppers and lowers)

Switchbox

80 Amp Relay

(8) SMC Valve Brackets

Rear
Gen. 2 Bridge Kit (without lower bag mount)

Axle Bracket with Shoch Mounts

5 gallon tank (8 port)

Airlift Dominators 2600's

Round Tubs / Round cover combo

Super-Pivot Raw SD 3 link (weld on)

Sideways upper shock mounts

Shock Stud threaded

Shocks


Misc.
Fittings

(4 cans) Zero Rust Paint - Aerosol - Crystal Coat

Zero Rust Paint - Quart - Black

24oz Prep Step Powder

Raptor Spray in Bedliner Kit

Trainhorns Kit (maybe)
Drag Blocks or Tow Hitch Balls
Paint Brushes

3:42 Rearend with Disks



I have already started collecting a few parts here and there and just put the order in for the EDC yesterday and bought the paint for the frame tonight, along with the PP ball joints. I already have the gauges, SD cups, and 2500 Dominators for the front. Also got a 10 switch switchbox from my buddy for free:)

Here is how the truck sits now: (note - I have blazer composite headlights now instead of sealed beams)


And this is how I hope it will look when this project is complete.



Again, major production should be starting late april. Right now I am just in the process of ordering all the parts. Please check my list and let me know if you see anything that I am missing.

One last thing, this is the little interior project I have been working on lately

Regardless, i have a few options and other offers to consider. I tell ya what though... all that hard work in school for engineering definitely paid off!! I feel so marketable... I love it!:D

true. Im going to try to weld up some kind of brackets to keep the kit from getting crushed using tow hitch balls or drag blocks. either way, worst case, if it gets messed up, ill take it off, haha
