I have a 01 xtra cab and I want to install bags in the front. Does any body out there know if there is any cutting involed or do they bolt in? Any help will be appreciated.:)

you can bag the front without cutting anything but it wont be that low if you want it to lay all the way your gonna have to cut & trim a little .... I have that kit available if you want it
What kind of cutting is involed? I would like to lay frame. I know that I will have to cut out my wheel wells not sure of any other cutting or welding. What kind of kit is it? Do you know anything about shaving door handles and tail gates?
You will also need to step notch the rear, cut the gas tank cross member, if xcab, flip the carrier bearing. I'm sure there are some other little things.
On my truck a little was cut out of the frame to keep the bag from rubbin against it. You might have to cut out the wheel tubs, depending on your wheel size. When I have my 205/40/17s on, when the truck is totally laid out its like half an inch off the ground. Then again I drug off the front xmember.....which inturn enabled me to drag a hole in my oil pan. Dont even get me started on all the stuff I broke from draggin and tryin to hop
so what is the secret to layin out the front??? i grinded down that little lip thing that holds that plastic piece and i hammered down that little corner thing in the firewall (does anyone actually know what i'm talking about???) well.....after all that it still doesen't lay.. i've got some 40 series tires wrapped around some 17's.. tell me your secrets??
you might have to cut out hole's in both front fender well's
my fenderwells are completely gone....well, i still need to cut off the battery u think cutting like an inch off my airbag cups will help get it down lower?
Good luck gettin to lay. Mine wont lay because of the whole racket pinion thing. Ive already drug off the flanges that come off the frame and bolt it down. I need to look into older toys and check out the steering. There has to be some swap. I can relocate it up..but not nearly enough. Then there is my second option. Make the whole truck lay body, even thought the front frame wont be on the ground
i'm gonna try cutting my cups about an inch or 2....hopefully my bags dont rub on anything....or funk it....just b-drop it. yay i just burned out my pressure switch...those ones at hack shack are so freakin sensitive. know of a cheap pressure switch (adjustable), and where to get?
i was gonna buy tanks from them....i don't think i will now..but those quad ports are oh so cool
