    Need help planning it and what else to buy?

    I already have the valves, lines, fittings, and everything you see in the pics. Its going in my 85 S-15 on the rear of course, Im running a 17" tire, and its an old SD cantilever setup Ive had for like 8 years and never got fully installed.
    I have the little triangles, the angled 3" axle brackets, the straight 2.75 ones for the lowers, behind he axle bag brackets, 24" lower bars and 21" adjustable uppers. Im ordering the raised gastank crossmember and I also have the S-10 8-piece notch that I didnt feel like dragging out for the pic, its heavy.

    I have a Lincoln 120volt but I might just tack them and trailer it to a friends house to finish it, or something like that

    i have seen some trucks bagged with a 120 you have to be pretty good with it. i have a lincoln sp135 and it will do the 3/16 and 1/4 i run it hot and slow wire. and move slow. one bad part is you cant use gas. and im sure more experianced welders could tell you more.

    yeah triangulated and everything that Ive heard in the 8 years or so since I ordered this says that 24" lower and 21" uppers are fine.


    Bag placement guys?

    if you are gonna run behind and under brackets like you got in the pic, i would recommend sleeve bags for a nice smooth ride, the sleeves act like a second shock, making a nice smooth ride... however it is perfectly fine to run it with those bags, and still will ride nice..
