how oftern do you get messed with for your tailights by cops im thinking about doing something similar as long as i can get away with it


never been messed with about the tail lights, the LED's in the roll pan are way brighter than any stock tail light. The only thing I ever get messed with about is the front windshield is tinted so I get pulled over a couple times a year for that.

That a new frame or are you using the old one? whyd you decide to do away with the bags


It is a new frame from the engine mounts back. The truck will still be bagged just lower than before, I was never happy with the front suspension on the bag job but they are building new control arms and everything up front so it should work the way I want now.

a simple bag job isn't that bad anymore, if you can do it yourself it is around a grand if you have to get someone else to do it maybe $2500 for a basic setup. I did dakota digital ride control, 4 compressors, spindles, control arms and a hydroboost brake system and got it done for around $5000 the first time. Wish I had just done the body drop then cause I have to start from scratch now so I wasted a lot of money doing it this way but you can't take it with you to the grave so you might as well have fun while you can.

Where are you finding the parts to bag a truck for $1000 ? used maybe ?
an where is a shop bagging a truck right for $2500,does that include parts or just labor?

And whats wrong with Ektensive is my question as I was going to use them to bag my 98 silverado? From all their work I have seen, they seem to be one of the most accredited suspension shops from here to Dallas. I have been searching for a good shop for a reliable finished product.

Ekstensive does great work, if you want a 2,3,4,5,6,8 link they can do it. They have a kit for 88-98 chevys, if you can weld itll save you a couple grand...its what i have on my truck
