That's almost a good idea. The thing is though you've gotta want the air bags for the right reason. i.e. it'll give you four inches of lift and fit my 33's nicely, it'll never be a good trail rig, but you could look sweet if it were made to look like one (moabs, 33's, limb risers, no chrome, bumpers) but then could set it on the ground so that girls could get in and out.


All that aside I'd still have to eat a bullet if that were mine.

not as a whole. but those specific bags. They aren't designed for traction, they are designed for a large range. As soon as you apply force to that particular suspension you're gonna hop.

Bags are great if they're the right ones for your application. My friend has rears on his dakota and they work wonders as a helper. Those ones are not an 'off road' suited set up. with nothing to reinforce the sus. bags are bouncy. The larger the travel you give them, the bouncier they get.

The most amazing shocks on a sloppy soft spring will still bounce and sway a lot.
Shocks are made to slow the rate that your suspension cycles at, not stiffen your ride.

I'm sure you could run this set-up off road, but do you really think it'd be better then a 4.5RE kit?

Basically this is the perfect 'malling' kit. Sorry if I just ruined the surprise for everyone, but the day this thread went up Scout ordered his.

i think it might do better actually. you can customize how high you want it to be, also how hard the springs (bags) can be too. You can customize them individually also which gives you more control of where your tires are. Imagine your front left tire stuck in a deep hole... you can soften the bag to that one and the opposite so it goes up easier while harden it to the other 2 to give it the balance effect... another example is take a look at that pic on the rock on my sig.. if you soften the front right and the rear left bags up it will go up the rock easy vs if all 4 are the same..

Well, maybe he could make somebody a good deal on his "like-new" lift kit he'll be replacing! Heck, after the shop makes the swap, they could even box up the old parts to make shipping easier for him!

Plus, it's much harder to punch a hole in a coil spring than a bag!

Granted the bags are pretty tough these days, but they do rely on the ability to hold air, while a spring will continue to work until it is no longer attached to the vehicle, for the most part.

2k still cheaper than a 4" long arm.

I put bags on my friends S-10 a few years back. I wouldn't use them off road. You guys be my guest though.
