i still wanna bagg the dak but if i do the rims won't tuck, they are flush with the stock fender flars, they are 265/35/22's, my last resort is to just drop it 2/3, i'm not worried about cutting whatever i just want em to tuck and lay frame. any ideas?

You will ultimatley have to buy a new set of 22's with the correct custom offset to allow them to tuck.

Even with that, there is still a good amount of work that has to be done.

If you either have a good amount of money or can do most of the work yourself, i say go for it.

If not, you may want to think this through before jumping into it.

yea PYE when i ordered the rims i figured that that this would be a bitch to bag, i had one crazy idea to atleast lay frame... body lift, then add body kit, then bags, still thinking this out though, Expensive yessss do i have the money nooooo, it will take a while but i dunno i might just drop it 2/3, i am stationed in Ga, but i all of my buddies are in houston, anybody know of any GOOD shops in georgia, i'm at Ft. Stewart, near savanna.

My buddy had the front of his old truck bagged, it was totaled, and with 25" tall tires on stock 16" rims it wouldn't even lay on the front crossmember but it was about an inch away maybe even a little less. The rear c-notch is about to be installed (8") on his new truck, itnwas supposed to get done last night but the shop called and said they couldn't do it tonite but it'll definately be getting done early next week. Also hopefully by the end of the year he'll have his 6 link installed and get everything set up for the airbags in the rear. For the rear end you'll probably have to narrow the axle about 5" total to get rims to tuck. Up front you'll need to do some modifications to the fender wells and make sure you have the right offset for the rims. You may even need custom control arms made that are a little shorter than stock i'm not sure, that all depends on how wide your rims are and what amount of backspacing they have. I'll see if I can get some pictures of the notch installation in the next few days, and when he puts the front bags back on this new truck i'll get some pictures of that as well. It'll be a while before the rear gets done, definately next month sometime but if I remember to check back here i'll post up some pics of that. He might have some rims by then, 18/20 combo, and if so i'll let you know what he needs to do to get them to tuck, and what offset/width the rims have. Good luck, I think 22's all around will look sick with the truck laid out!

K.. The 22's arent the problem that you have. They might be "a" problem but its an easy fix. I have a set of 24's on my dak but i had to do some minor adjustments to get it to work. First off... i had the same fender to sidewall problem as you...all i did was get my front and rear axels shortened. Didnt cost too much and i was quick. The tires cleared by an inch, inch an a half. The biggest problem is going to be cutting the fender wells.. Its was a bitch to do and if you want it to look right....its a must. The kit i bought bagged the front to almost the cross frame and the back onto the hitch. It's amazing when its done but it takes a little tinkering to get it right. In my opinion...the 22's shouldnt give you too much trouble its the axels and wheel wells that will.

alright hold up for a sec. i have a bagged 98 dakota and my buddy has a body dropped dakota. wheel wells are no problem , narrowing is expensive, and theirs no way you can lay out on 24's on a genIII kota. my buddy has a body dropped dakota on 22's and they are 2mm from rubbing the hood. he had to cut the hood hinges and all to get it to lay out. the rear is around 800 bucks to narrow if you get a good deal and no one makes narrowed control arms for us, you'll have to make them your self. if you want some real answers join www.customdakotas.com and we'll help you out with everything.
