    How expensive are airbags? Do they come in 4"+ of lift? I am just wondering because I want to lift the Jimmy 4"+ but I will also drive it in the winter, so I don't want it to be tall during the winter, so i thought of I had airbags and could lower it to stock height in the winter (to prevent rollovers) and also when it's windy out. Is this just a stupid idea? Would it just be better to go with a shackle flip and springs? /forums/images/graemlins/ears.gif

    You need 4 links to airbag your rig.

    I'd just do the springs and forget it.

    The links wouldnt cost a lot, It would be all the compressor, bags, tank, valves, switches, ect. But still it wouldnt be THAT expensive, espically for something small.
