My dad wants to see a lil spread sheet of everything it takes to bag a truck, i wanted to post what i got so far you guys let me know if im missing anything. i get all my wires, airlines, and fittings for free so i wont included that, but here's everything i got

Airbags-4, unless i got with coolride kit, then 2 bags plus coolride kit, 1/2 ports.
cantileaver
4 link
shocks
10 switch box
gauges-5
450 c viar compressor-2
smc 1/2 air valves-8
8 gallon tank-2

thats everything i got so far, and everything i can think of, let me know how the system sounds, and if im forgettin anything. or maybe some cheaper or easier products out there over the ones i picked.
also i plan on runnin 1/2 inch everything with regulators on my dumps.

Also about the cool ride kit, do i just mount the shock tabs on the lca and frame, set the cups in the lca and shock cup, but the shock cut with the plasama and call it a day?

any advice would be appreciated :head:

why do you need 5 gauges? all you need is two dual needle gauges, and if you want you can add a third single needle gauge for tank pressure. other than that, everything else looks good. just gotta remember the airline and all of the fittings. also gonna need a c-notch or stepnotch.

If you're gonna spend $400ish on 2 compressors, you will need an optima red/yellow top most likely. Just spend the extra $200 and get an air commander. I noticed you said cantilever, then 4 link. If your looking at the KP kit, it comes with rear shocks.

Coolride kit comes with bags, but make sure and request 1/2" or 3/8" ports because the ones that the kit comes with are 1/4".

Coolride kit comes with shocks and so does KP components with cantilever, so you don't need to buy those separate.

I agree with getting the air commander, you'll thank yourself later.

Talk to Larry at www.innovativeairsuspension.com . He'll hook you up with some nice prices on everything you need.

im gonna need some explanation on the pressure switch and water trap. thanx for the quick respones, i'll go with the two duel needles, and a single for tank pressure.

also if i go with the air commender, how the hell do i set it up on my 93, i have no idea how these belt drivens go in?

edit: and also if i end up gettin the kp cant/4 link, and coolride up front, all i will need to get is two rear bags, the rest i need to set them up is included. any recomendations on a good rear bag?

The kp kit doesnt come with bags. I've heard great about the Airlift 2b7's. Thats what I bought. The air commander has a fully detailed instruction sheet(thats what airlift says anyways). It says that it is a 4 hour bolt on kit. If you get an engine driven comp, it comes with a pressure switch. The water trap also comes with the engine driven. http://store.gaugemagazine.com/index.asp?PageAction=VIEWPROD&ProdID=1524
