    :bigthumb: HEY MAN IM NEW TODAY.
    BUT I WAS JUST ABOUT TO BAG MY 4X4 BLAZER ALSO SO ALL THIS INFO CAME IN USEFULL. I TOO GOT THE SAME COMMENTS" YOU CANT DROP A 4X4" BUT I MADE MY OWN BRACKETS AND CAME UP WITH A WAY TO DROP MINE 6/5 ALSO. AND THEN PEOPLE SAID I COULDNT BAG IT SO IM ABOUT TO PROVE THEM WRONG. A FEW QUESTIONS THOUGH, WHAT KINDA MOUNTS DID YOU USE IN THE FRONT FOR THE UPPER AND LOWER BAG MOUNTS? AND YOU SAY THE FRAME LAYS WITHIN 1/2 AN INCH OFF THE GROUND..BUT WITH WHAT SIZE RIMS? IT'LL BE NICE TO SIT THAT LOW AND NOT HAVE TO DO SPINDLES LIKE THE 2WD'S. OF COURSE WE COULDN'T ANYHOW. AND YOU SAID YOU LEFT THE T-BARS STILL IN HUH? THAT'LL WORK SWEET CUZ IF YOU BLOW A BAG JUST CRANK THOSE BARS UP AND DRIVE HOME.:) WHICH IS HANDY FOR THOSE AWAY SHOWS.

    ANYHOW, ALSO IF ANYONE IN THE NEW HAMPSHIRE AREA OR SURROUNDING STATES NEEDS HELP DROPPING THERE 4X4 GIVE ME A MAIL AND I'D LOVE TO HELP ANYONE OUT.

    That's cool, you have the same ambition as I do. I used treated flat bar steel to make my mounts. 5 inches wide and 3/8" thick. Ten feet was like $30.
    I have stock 15 inch rims with 205/65/15 tires. If I got tires that are a little smaller, it would lay. But I'm just going to buy some 17's with 205/40's and that sould be just low enough to throw sparks.

    BTW- What's with the CAPS WRITING? Looks like your yelling.

    Looks good so you can run the truck with out the bars up front and keep the 4whd hooked up right looks like a good idea .

    i wounder if you can use more then a 6" in the front on a 4x4 before you lose the ball joints like a 2whd what do you think slim.
    what is the lift on the bags in your blazer?

    I don't know what that does to the ball joints. I've never had a problem and it's been over a year with an altered suspension. I don't get very much lift (compaired to 2wd kits). I get about 4 iches maybe more. Most people think it's plenty, but i'm working on making it more.

    No, they don't do anything that drastic. They just get pinched tighter than usual on the inside side, but it doesn't cause seroius damage.

    If you "T bar" the bags with some air shocks then you can get rid of the "bounciness" and still go up or down fast cuz the shocks will dump with the bags. I want to mount 2 air shocks on evey corner, 1 on each side of the drive axle, and those little "sleeve" bags up front on adjustable camber upper control arms. Full size semi truck bags in the back with a super C-notch should make it so I can still pull a boat.
