I'd say drain the tanks and lines and bags, so water isnt in them, and they dont freeze..

maybe aired out, but with the frame on some blocks or something, so the suspension and the bags arent compressed all the way, it should take some of the stress off of things. Thats just an idea.

I know for a non-bagged car/truck, you are supposed to keep the weight off the tires and putting jack stands under the suspension so it doesn't sag. my guess for bags is to have some air in it to act like a spring and not push the suspension all the way up (that is if you are using jackstands under the suspension).

But air systems will eventually leak the air out and so it may be aired out by spring.

Word, Dime Time.

I would do like that other dude said. Drain the tanks, lines, then set it on some blocks just high enough to take most of the weight off of the tires and not so high that the suspension is hangin'.

Going out and starting up your truck now and then is good too. I've heard of people putting "dry gas" in their tanks also.

I spent 3 years up in New England, talk about some freakin' snow!
