    I have a 96 S-10 Ext Cab (like that matters) and I want to bag out just the rear. I will soon have 20x8s in the rear and think a rear bag setup will be much easier then a leaf/shackle/block/ c-notch setup. I have seen trucks w/ just bags in the front so would it be any worse (if at all) in the rear? Suggestions welcome.

    no, bags in just the rear is nothing new. i forget the company, but someone makes a bolt-on step notch for bagging S10's. you still have to cut the frame, but you don't have to build the step. someone tell us who makes it.

    it may be air ride that i'm thinking of. but in order to tuck those 20s, once you bolt the section in, you have to cut the original frame out. this bolt-in piece is the new frame section. if you didn't cut it out, you'd have no room for the axle to move when you let out the air.
     
  5. why dont ya bag the front and rear? if ya cant afford to bag the whole thing right now, bag the front and put air shocks in the back so that way u can lay out.

    Absolutely nothing wrong with bagging just the rear. Airbags were originally designed for only rear-mounting anyway, to help carry heavy loads.

    he only needs to notch it if he wants to ride around really low in rear, say beyond 4in drop, or if he wants to air it out completely and sit beyond a 6in drop

    air lift also makes a pretty good rear setup.
