    easiest way would be bags on top of the upper control arm and a bracket to keep the top of the bag secure and able to hold the load of the truck, but your limited to the cv shafts and how far they can go

    well, i bought a torsion bag kit, and did some work got the front of the truck bagged, sits about 2" off the ground on 29" tires, looking at switching to 6" bags from the 7s i have in there now and some 27" tires

    i'm swapping to some smaller tires, when i did the bag brackets i made it bottom out closer to a 27" tire so i should be able the get the front on the ground or within an inch, the back i'm planning to do a paralell 4 link and panhard with a cutom gas tank thats notched for the upper link bars and stretchs abit further forward.... but in the mean time i might see if i can just get an easrlier gas tank to tuck up under the rear of the truck.
