Bags on front of 4x4?

1962 Views 21 Replies 17 Participants Last post by  izzy
ok, i'm looking into different setups on bagging my '02 silverado 1500HD 4x4. i'm not too worried about the back, that looks to be just a normal setup. But, what will the front envolve to bag that will have to be fabricated to keep the 4wheel drive functional. My thinking is that since my tbars are cranked right now and are at a pretty steep angle going up and i haven't had a problem yet, that with the front end laying on the ground, and the axles pointing up a little wouldn't hurt anything ... right?? If you guys can point me in the direction of some good tech articles or pictures of a bagged front end of a four wheel drive i would greatly appreciate it!!!


Thanks for the info guys

Why lift a 2wd? "Run what you Brung" I guess.
I see what you're sayin man, but liftin a 2wd doesn't cost nothin like baggin a 4wd would. I just wonder how much of a bind everything would get in on a bagged 4wd? I admit I wanted to bag my old 2dr 4wd tahoe, but am now glad I didn't.

I understand lifting a 2wd, if your just after the look. 2wds are cheep, cost less to insure and maintain, and I could be wrong but I thinke they're cheeper to lift.


Baggin' a 4wd, I still don't get. It's probably gonna cost twice as much as a 2wd, and be twice as hard. Your also going to have a harder time selling a bagged 4wd than a lifted or stock one. IMO, not worth it to bag one.

It seems like he took a double shock hoop and fabed it to fit a bag. If this is how the front of the truck is lowered/raised then the 4wd on that should still work fine. When ppl go out offroad and are flexed on something and the tire is jammed to the wheel well that doesnt mean the 4wd is gona break. Its built to have some flew in it. But i really dont know all the details just my thought.

ive seen that setup before in a truck tech article if u got a escalade and want to bag it u have to do the same thing because a majority of the escys r 4x4 anyway its crazy but all u do is take out the torsion bar then theres nothing supporting the front end then they mount the bag on top to keep the halfshafts in their mount some shox and yur in business basically
:crazy:
just my .02 cents later
