View Full Version : baggin my obs
01-06-2006, 06:08 PM
ok guys well im fairly new to this site, and i have been doing a lot of research and i think i can handle bagging my obs on my own. Heres my setup so far..
- KP 4 link w/ cantilever for rear
-ART cool ride system for front
-I havent got it yet but i think i might dish out the money for The Bad Mo-***ka air kit from www.suicidedoors.com
-10 " monster notch
- 2" inch DJM spindles
I have 265/35/22, Im not trying to lay true frame i just wanna sit about a inch or inch and a half from the ground. So since im not trying to lay true frame is it true that you dont need to cut out the fenderwells up front or tub out the firewalls? and with the ART coolride system do i need to buy the shock relocater kit? I really dont care bout cutting up the fenderwells for my bed but i really dont want to go through the trouble up front by relocating **** here and there but with my tires i dont think its necessary but i could be wrong. any other hints or tips on this setup and project. let me know what yall think?

i have 18's and i had to cut up my inner front fenders to get it to lay so if you wanna sit an inch or so off the ground you are probably gonna have to cut some stuff up. i have the KP kit in the back its pretty cool

if you dont cut your fenderwells you'll probably be like 4" off the ground (maybe more). you have to cut quite a bit just to get 1" off the ground. the coolride kit should come with shock relocators. here's what i had to do to lay out on 22's
*tub firewall or just move it back a few inches (i actually just moved mine back with a portapower)
*tie rod notch
*notch frame for lower control arm (it will hit the frame before you lay out)
*notch lower control arm mount (the lower control arm will hit it before you lay out)
*notch upper control arm mount or the uppers themselves (the upper control arm will hit before you lay out)
*modify or remove inner fenders
*relocate or remove coolant overflow tank (will possibly hit)
*relocate battery or battery mounts
*relocate or remove windshield washer fluid tank
*remove hood springs (will possibly hit)
*drop spindles (of course)
tubular control arms will help alot and keep you from having to notch the frame so much.

do you happen to have any pics of you firewall pushed back? did you have to move the a/c stuff either?

i didnt have to relocate any ac stuff. everything i relocated i put in the 3rd post of this thread. i dont have any pics of my firewall. its not cover truck ready but it doesnt look bad.

ur2hi what is your setup for up front, im guessing you have stock lca right??
01-09-2006, 10:50 PM
up front i have art uppers, modified stock lowers, slams, suicidedoors upper cups
01-09-2006, 11:51 PM
what is stock "LCA" im having alot of trouble comprehending all this front end stuff it looks extremly hard im finishing up my rear end this weekend all my parts have finally come pouring in then im gonna do the front if someone could be nice enough to post or send some pics to email@example.com of what all needs to be notched/cut on the stock arms upper and lower to lay i would appreciate it more than anything ive ever appreciated before.. then for a run down on what im planning on im gonna go with 2inch drop spindles, firestone 2600's for now, suicide doors cups if i even need them, and suicide doors firewall tubs, ive already relocated all the other stuff that was in the way washer fluid, ABS removed, fuse relay and all that **** my inner fenders are ready to hit the dumps so i understand everything that needs to be relocated and where to cut my fenders and **** i just dont get all this tie rod notch and a-arm notching **** is all i would buy tubular arms and which i intend to at some point but for now im low on funds and this front just needs to be bagged lol... I am laying 22inch wheels by the way with 265/35/ZR22 rubber and 9.5" wide wheel.

lca=lower control arm. sorry man, i dont have any more pics. the two pics i did post should help you out some. install everything and try and lay it out, you can tell whats keeping you from laying. thats pretty much what i did. also, you will need the cups

I have done alot of minis and I'm sure somewhat of the bagging techniques are the same with a fs. I have been searching around the site for different tips and parts for my future truck. I see alot of you guys are running the kp 4link. What are the pros/cons vs. the kp 6? I'm going to iraq pretty soon for a yr and I'm going to have some cash to blow when I get back and I would like to build an obs fs, thats why I'm asking.
