Bagged dually?

So I've decided I want a new truck. I've always wanted a bagged dually, so I've decided it's time to start researching and looking for one.

What should I be looking for in one?
Any goods forums I need to start looking at?
I there a pirate version of bagged trucks?

So far Mautofied.com - Modified and Custom Cars For Sale is the best site I've found with for sale ads. Any better ones to check?

I've got a 74 c30 I'm interested in, and a 94 c3500 if the guy will return any more calls.

Buy a dually. Do the work yourself or find a reputable shop to do it. Avoid buying someone else's shitty fab work and/or problems. Profit/be a flatbill doucher...that part is dependent on who you ask.

Most bagged trucks are ghetto fab. As said above beware if buying used.

Alot of shady fab work on bagged trucks. Budget enough money into the deal to afford to redo everything that is half ass. You are better off buying a decent truck to start with than picking up a "good deal" on a bagged truck. Most of the decent ones do not sell cheap. If you plan on picking up a used bagged truck look for electric valves, engine driven compressors, multiple viair or air zenith compressors, water traps, most trucks will have air leaks, if the truck drags frame how beat up is it underneath, bolt on setup or welded. 4 link or leafs. Lifted gas or diesel tank. Check pinion angle throughout suspension cycle and camber. Also check the bag angles and check for cracks when aired up or down.

Here's the 2 I'm considering.

94 bagged an linked with small notch in the rear only for towing. Front is springs and spindles.



74, needs interior work, and need to figure out a heater box.
This thing is just pure sex in my eyes (other than the color).
It's a new big block.

Some are for show and some actually get used for towing.You don't need a lifted 4x4 for towing on the streets.I love the look of an older chevy crew cab dually.Actually had a 78 GMC crew cab dually with a built 454.That was a fun truck.But I like to camp in primitive sites so I have a 3/4ton 4x4 suburban for a tow rig now.

I'd go with the 94. The 74 is cool, but when its all said and done its still just a 74 crew cab.

I like the way they look.....Not enough to make me wanna rush out to the shop and start cutting on my 01 f350 crew cab dually......

I have owned a few 1/2 ton bagged street trucks and they were kinda fun for awhile.....(like a stripper girlfriend.....) But they werent anything that I think I would ever wanna tow with....

Maybe with a really nice bling set of controls that have ride height sensors and the ability to constantly adjust itself on each corner individually?

What the fuck is the point of a fast car when you're not supposed to exceed the speed limit, a ridiculously overpowered bass boat when you can simply fish out of a john boat, or an offroad buggy when you can simply walk over a pile of rocks?

Different strokes for different folks. That said, I've helped build 4 bagged trucks, and I've never cared for bagged duallys. Very few of the owners actually use them for towing, but at least they're capable of pulling a loaded gooseneck trailer, as long as the work was done right.

Love an old crew dually. Dropped is nice too. I like em all different ways, dropped, stock, and lifted. There is a look for all three that I can agree with. Usually clean and simple.
