What are you trying to accomplish with bags? Lift, lower, towing? There are too many answers to the questions you asked without narrowing down what you are wanting to do.

I dont know a damn thing about lifting a truck with air ride, but I will tell you that investing in good air management (valves, comps, fittings, ect...) goes a long way. It also adds up quick $$$. Buy cheap components and it will be nothing but a headache. As far as bags popping, most of the cases I have heard of is because some nut case over-inflates them or the bag itself doesn't have clearance and gets a weak spot worn in it, causing it to blow.

I have an air bagged Colorado that lays out. The rear bolt on air bag kit is for mainly towing purpose to keep the truck from squatting in the rear. As for it lifting or lowering I don't think it will do much of either. Depending on the setup I guess. As far as bagging the whole truck. It's crazy expensive. But let me know if I can help in anyway

there are plenty of lifted trucks with air-ride instead of coil-overs. Kelderman.com makes great kits with like 30 inches of lift.
They ride fine, drive fine, don’t pop if installed correctly, and work great. If bags ‘popped’ all the time, every big rig, bus, and cement trucks wouldn’t have them installed.
Google airbag 4x4s lots of info on the net.

You'd have to do some considerable work to convert from your torsion bar front suspension to a coil-over set-up if you wanted air all the way around.

I'm still curious what your ultimate goal for the air bags would be -- you mention lift, do you want to have additional clearance off-roading? Kind of like the VW Touareg?
