    yeah, the air bags make it VERY possible. on top of the lower center of gravity i bet it would do alright if it had a beefed up motor.

    the part that gets me is the add says "Your loss is my gain..."
    kinda backwards i thought...
    nice looking truck though.

    i dont mind some show trucks and i like the idea of the dually slammed it just seemed to be a waste of a good 1 ton puller to me.

    Like I was trying to say, why is it a waste? For the reasons noted a dually slammed out can make a nice tow rig. In fact if it were for the fact that offroad park parking lots are like offroading themselves, I'd heavily consider lowering my tow rig.

    the joys of a fully bagged truck... lil lower than stock ride height, on the frame when parked and higher when in non paved situations....

    Well hell, i guess i'm with the "other" group that really doesn't see anything wrong with this truck, yeah sure, he can't pull houses off their foundations, of climb over a speed bump:p: but all in all, it is a nice truck, for the way it's setup,,,,it's a street cruiser, not a tow rig :D

    you're absolutely right. because it has air bags on it, it is worthless for any sort of towing. i see retards with airbags towing all the time, but their trucks all seem to look a little more like this.

    one thing you're definitely failing to realize about air bags. not only can you let the air out of them to lower the truck, but you can add air to lift it too. speed bumps are no longer a problem as they are with a static drop.

    Flip down plate normally means there is a hitch behind it.


    I like it, swap in those front bags & you're set.

    We're seriously trying to figure out a way to get a crew cab or a Suburban to slam down to the ground and use as a tow rig. Air bags or not as long as your trailer is loaded properly what does it matter if the puller has a six inch lift or a six inch drop?
