How much do you think the whole setup cost? I've always had airbags in the back of my head for down the road.

Can you create a parts list with brands and numbers?

I'm not going to go to that level, but seeing some of the places you've been and what you've done are pretty remarkable.

I like the video.

Got mine on bags too, paddle valves instead of electric control also mounted on the shifter base/console. I have dual needle gauges one for front and for rear. Im running the boss triple bags (2503's I think) about 10" travel by air, and then a bit more with the weight of the axle pulling down. How much travel you getting with those bags? They look good.

Same travel, about 25-28 centimeters

In Russia bags 80usd*4, manifold 100usd, air fittings about 50usd, air gauges 40usd, buttons, wires, bolts about 20 usd. Whole setup 530-550usd

Cool, good to know of other options.

I realize you have a 9.5” front axle up front at that other fella brought it up, as well as 3 link and steering booster mounted up high. Some easy to miss details.

did you just move the front axle forward or did you cut a lot of metal out of the back of the fender for clearance? I assume you moved the rear axle back a few inches as well and cut out some body panels.

One thing I been thinking about doing on mine is adding a solenoid valve with 2 regulator and 4 check valves to a switch to auto fill to ride height. I drop mine to fit it in the garage and then am always adjusting it a bit for ride height after Ieave, so it would auto fill and then I can manually adjust later.

nice rig.

After few years I start to build my dream car. It names “extreme vacation”, comfortable off road car on 42 inches.

Front axle made from rear semi floated hzj81.
