Do any of you bag guys drive your truck on a daily basis? I'm trying to decide between bags and a static drop, but my truck must be daily and must be reliable. So, do any of you drive your bagged trucks daily? Are there any issues with doing so? advice?

I drive mine daily and have had no issues! Just make sure it is bagged properly, and that you take no shortcuts. In other words, don't do a two link or a reverse triangulated 4 link and make sure to have good welds! A properly enginered suspension will ride better than stock! I recomend hard pipeing the air lines. It is alot more durable than the dot line.

Most 18 wheelers and trucks of similar size ride on air bag suspensions. They drive those every day, all day with very few problems. Goes to show :imo that a properly designed setup will be just fine.

on the other hand,

its alot harder to jump curbs when you can't get it up high enough :D

me and my dad drive bagged trucks with FBSS daily.
You're the only person who gets to say that. :D

Mine's been a daily for well over a year, only problem has been a couple thrown compressor belts, which take 15 minutes to fix. :D

Like everyone else said, it's all in the install.

I've had mine for a year and a half and very minor problems. Agree that it's all in the install.

daily driven on a 2 link, once you get the pinion angle set right it's not a problem, even with 12 inches of travel/lift

I drive my bagged Blazer daily in the summer. The only time it has ever left me stranded was right after I got my new exhaust they layed one of my air lines on the new exhaust and it melted. Driving it in the winter is out of the question, since my valves freeze.

frozen valves? I'd never thought of that. That could put baggin out of the question for me, I have to drive my truck daily year round...
