    bigger the bag (the 5-8 inch part) the easier it is for them to lift your ride but the more space they take up when collapsed (mostly only an issue up front)

    as far as the dual/single port stuff..its about how fast you want to lift/dump usually a single 1/2" port with valves placed close is fast enough for most people

    finally on your 4x4....the rear will be like any other but you're not going to be able to do the front and keep the 4x4...and this is where my helpfullness ends I know many others on this forum have ditched their 4x4 up front and bagged it but I'm not sure of the process

    GoodLuck

    P.S. Slams are the best around...little bit more money but worth it and ride alot smoother than others

    it all depends on what you are trying to achieve. you can get by with and air over leaf setup. A 4-link would be an entirely new rear suspensoin and would take some fab work.

    that kit will not work. You will have to make everything for the front.

    I will be doing the same thing within a month or so. there is quite a bit of prep and design, measure 4 times cut once and check it

    it will be something like this

    if you ditch the 4x4 you do not have to bag it like that, you can bag it more like a 2wd, you dont want to bag on the upper control arm unless you have too

    you can remove: front drive shaft, transfer case, and cv shafts. you want to keep the outer shafts that go through your wheel beearings.

    keep the stock tank, 3 link. Go to a 2dr tank, a 4 link, you can keep the floor if you want to lay hump on 18's anything bigger you will wanna cut the floor to lay. However i do recommend at least cutting out the floor to work on it, its a hell of alot easier to work on and just re-weld it in later or just seal it off with some screws and sealant.
