Well, I'll be hittin...

SWITCHES!!! Yes sir, I'll be bagging the front of my truck in about hopefully a month or so & I'm so excited! A vendor or soon to be vendor on RPS, he's got me EVERYTING for the front & some of the stuff for the rear when I go to start it. I'll be able to control all bags @ different times!

But I have a few questions, I need some help on what I should do to lower the front? I've got the rear set-up in my head as of right now what I'd like to do.

I've got the whole front set-up for a little under $800, which I am very pleased with, even though I know practically nothing about bagging a truck. But I'm getting more knowledgeable each & everyday.

Well I just thought that I would inform everybody how excited I am for this very HUGE change in my truck!

yeah, they'll look like mexi-pop outs. I'm not saying you gotta go bling bling 24"s but I wouldnt go with anything smaller than 20"s maybe 19"s

I know money is always an issue, but while your slamming it, now would be a good time to do an explorer axle swap to get discs all around and big brake kit in the near future if you are going to use a rim with as much negative space as mustang wheels
