Hey guys i was wondering does anyone know how low a truck with bags will lay if you do not cut the bed. My dad said the only way he will help me get bags is if they do not cut apart my bed and wheel wells and stuff. So im just looking for ways to bag without doing all the cutting and stuff. Im thinking of just bagging the rear and running 2 or 3 inch drop in the front with 20s in front and 22s in rear. Does anyone think this would be cool or have any other suggestions or have any info on bagging without notching frame and cutting into bed ? Thanks guys.

to be honest, if your not goin to cut anything, your better off with like a 4-6 drop. It also depends on the size of wheel/tire combo that you have. If your running a smaller wheel/tire it should lay pretty good. You'll eventually get the "I gotta have bigger wheels" mindset and you'll end up doin some cuttin.

you could lay a 245/35/20 in the back. Just do a notch under the bed. You might have to hammer up the bed floor where the pumpkin is though.

yeahhh the only thing is i got a quote today from a shop and they said approx 5500 to bag both but thats like cutting into the bed and stuff. idk how much of a diff in cutting the bed makes in price ? but im looking to spend around 2500 - 3000 to do rear. is that an appropriate estimate ?

2500-3000 is a good price to get the rear done. It's probably more expensive to do it without cutting the bed because it will take more work.

A setup like mine would run about 4000 from our shop. Its 3/4" line and valves, parallel 4 link, slam bags, parker valves, 5 gallon tank, 2 380c compressors. gauges, switch box, shocks, etc.

If you want to take a drive we can do it. We are located in fresno CA. Check out the website. www.559customs.com

wagonb0y is the aim name
whatever you do, just do it right the first time.

I know some people that have spent 10 grand on bags jobs because they always had to fix them.

hey dreal. those pics i sent you with the intros i sold you on my truck.....the bed was never cut out. If you want, drop your truck off here and I'll throw a KP 4 link with cantilever on it and do all the work for a great deal if you want. you can get that think to lay gas tank hard without cutting the bed out at all.
