Here, a Vanagon

 

Weekends are meant to focus on the simpler things in life, which is why we decided to take a closer look at Jakob Dzik’s bagged 1988 VW Vanagon GL.SONY DSCHaling from The Shop Autowerx, Jakob has had a lot of experience in bagging cars of all makes and models, however this bad boy was put together as a challenge:

I was told over and over again: “You can’t put a Vanagon on bags with out re-engineering the entire front suspension”.  Also that my 4 year old son said it would be Awesome! How can you argue with that?SONY DSC

He sure did prove all the negative Nancies wrong, and just to put some icing on the cake he slapped on a set of custom 17×8″ and 17×11″ 3 piece Gotti J55A / C wheels.SONY DSCWhat’s keeping this car both lifted and lowered at the same time is a set of Air Lift 2500 fronts and 3500 rears.  Dual ViAir 450c compressors sit neatly out back hooked up to a 3 and 5 gallon tank.  You read right, dual tanks.  He also raised the 2.0L ABA OBD1 Turbo motor up higher in the engine bay to give him better clearance when aired out.  Talk about dedication!SONY DSCSometimes in life one needs to simply sit back and take in one’s surroundings.  When you’ve got a bagged VW Vanagon to show off, your surroundings get a hell of a lot more interesting!

Take a look at the breakdown:

  • Front: Air Lift 2500 Series
  • Rear: Air Lift 3500 Series
  • AVS 5-switch switchbox
  • One 3 gallon tank and one 5 gallon tank
  • 2 dual needle gauges
  • 8 valve manifold
  • Dual ViAir 450c compressors
  • 3/8″ lines at the bags, 1/4″ lines to the guages
  • Engine lifted to give more ground clearance
  • Custom air suspension mounts
