Easy. They can go in the front seats or back seat. Doesnt matter. :D

While I was on Scrape-n-Customs website, here's a 1st Gen. They didn't have any pictures of it layed out, but there's one in the latest MiniTruckin':

Also check out StreetSourceMag and go to Community/Owner Rides, you'll find a few in there.

Is it possible to bag the AWD Mounty? I know nothing about bags but I'd have the balls to try it if someone gave me some ideas.

I'd be "ok" without laying the frame, I just want to get it down about another 2 to 3 inches than what it's at now. I have the torsion bars flipped with the screw out and 4 inch blocks in the rear. What do you think?

Nice X!! So, is it possible to bag a 4wd X, but just not body-drop it? I may want to bag my X in the future, so is a better idea to get a 2wd X and get that to bag and body-drop, or would I be satisfied with a bagged 4wd. Keep in mind that I'll need the 4wd for the winter, so if I was to get a 2wd, it would be my summer/"project" vehicle only...

I just want to know before I start modding what the best way to go is...Thanks

Ok, well I've been looking on the internet at bagged Explorers and there is one that says, "This was a 4wd truck but we pulled the half shafts out for the bags." What does this mean?? Is that the only way to bag a 4wd?

Thanks for the help in advance... :thumbsup:
