No, but I was comparing a magnum suspension to the jeeps and the front is similar and the magnum's been bagged, the rear should be simple enough with a solid axle and springs.

I was thinking about it...doing some research right now. If you have hookups it should cost anywhere from $1000-$2000 for a good standard 3-channel bag setting. Meaning 3 adjustable heights. More options means more money. Just remember if a bag bust you are stuck on the road.

one other point.....not sure if this is pertinent, i think it may be......you cant go much lower in the front than srt8 eibachs without having interference. a few guys with the coil overs can atest to that. originally had hoped they could SLAM it more than springs but NO DICE.

KingMonkey has done this to his SRT8 on 22" rims and he says it can go a lot lower but he didn't want to.

Not really. I use to drag my S10 all the way home when I busted bags. Lol. I had 3 different blowouts. I guess from the salt in the air from the ocean.

Thought about bagging my WK a long time ago but it's too much money and a headache.

LIKE THAT SRT8!!

I know of some custom shops here in DFW that can do it. They've bagged a SCHOOL bus!!

I have had friends bag their trucks, etc.. and the 1000-2000 price range is about right. I also wanna get some PHAT black 20's rim(they gotta tuck tho). Should look cleannn.

A friend of mine had a bag system set up to where the bags were fully adjustable. slam it-2 inch lift. had fontr and rear controls in the cab with gauges which let him know where they need to be for a normal ride height

The new WK2 here is listed here with airbags as a option and the picture showed it as part of the strut. Wonder if they would bolt right in and be avaliable later on from wreaks?

To install those, you may as well get a custom set up on your own. As far as the system that operates it, that seems complicated. They self rise/lower. For instance, on highway they rake out the jeep for improved aerodynamics.

I want one I can slam or raise to a normal driving level. Hopefully not too much body modification is required. Usually the vehicle must have the fender wells tubbed out to fit the wheels when tucking them.

As soon as I hear back from this custom shop, I'll keep yall updated
