as anyone will tell you......you get what you pay for when it comes to this kinda stuff...

$1300 for a complete front and back bag set up??.....i would find out who the manufacturer is and what kinda system it is...cuz that is VERY cheap and it is prolly some shAIM Industries/Chassis Tech shit which you DO NOT watn on your truck... but there is a ton of different kits out there and all are completely different....no way to get you pictures of one specific set up that you think you will have

i would say if you are not ready to spend a decent amount of money....do not bag your truck!..you will have problems later gauranteed!

i agree, i have been wanting to bag my truck for awhile now but after reading and researching i am waiting to get the ART and Kp setup, if you can tell the guys what u want, like if u want to lay frame on 22s or 20s and a 4-link or whatever im sure they will point you in the right direction, but i am saving up to get the good stuff, dont want to go down the road and your suspension f up and then you will be out a lot more money then u would have if u woulda bought the good stuff cuz who knows what would fuck up then......

thats what i paided after shipping and everything to up here
wow, that's alot for shipping. they go for $999 without shipping at suicidedoors.

Even with AIM stuff, how in the hell do you get everything for $1300? Maybe I haven't priced AIM stuff but that is way too cheap.

Like these guys mentioned here, you really need to research some more on bag setups and make sure you know what you're getting before you get it. Even for the cheapest bag setup (weld on components), $1300 seems a bit on the cheap side, but it could be. Do you or your friend know how to weld?

1300 shipped for my kp 6link

3 boxes at about 85pounds or so

we pay like 3 times the amount because alaska is
"over seas" because most of the compny fly the stuff in or it comes in a truck

if u drive it, from seattle to anchorage is like 2k miles

price diff. between the two isnt gonna be much different....hardware and everything is all the same...only difference is the amount of valves you have and airline really which doesnt add up to a whole lot...

like i said before if you wanna go the cheap route i would suggest not doing it at all....i dont wanna sound like a dick but i have spent 2 years now working on my truck slowly getting parts and making sure i get everything right i may actaully finish it by this summer...we'll see....please do not go the cheap route though cuz it will come back to bite you in the ass and i dont wanna see you posting back up here a few months from now saying you are having problems with something that could have been prevented
