    It's what they like? They might think the same about 4 wheelers, spending a lot of money to beat on thie trucks.

    i understand that, but we enhance our trucks purpose, they go against the definition of a truck

    I don't get the lowrider thing either, but then again, I grew up in a town 100,000 people and more railroad tracks then streets. You'd see lowered vechiles there, but they couldn't drive them down over half the streets in town. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    I don't see a problem with it. I wouldn't build one but so what? Everyone has fun in different ways. If you can't respect that your not a decent person in my opinion. May be mean but its how I feel and I know I am not alone. I am from Pennsylvania pothole capitol of the US so there aren't too many seriouslly lowered vehicles, my friends girlfriend has an Xtreme its stock and she says its too low for the streets. But these don't go against the definition of a truck, first of all a burban isn't a truck its a really big SUV, secondly I have seen many duallys and all lowered that can easily still hold the load capacity they could at stock height, sometimes even more! Air bags are an amazing thing.

    stability is the key with tow rigs right? why not leave them factory... should be more stable that way than lifted or "slammed".

    A few years back I had a 78 C30 crew cab (4 door) duelie pick-up we used to tow a lawncare trailer with. The front had drop spindles, but the rear was at stock hight. Looked and handled great. Wish I had a pic of that thing so I could post it.

    i used to talk a lot of sh!t on those things too. then a while ago i got to talking to one of the guys that builds them. its like, they fab lots of their stuff to and put just as much work into making their rigs low and we put into making ours crawl. i think that custom stuff is cool. not like the ricer idiots that use lots of bolt on junk. but that primer gray burban, sombody put A LOT of work into making that thing sit like that. i wont ever own one, but i still give props to the guy who built it.

    I've been to Latino car shows where they have Fat Fender 47 type Chevys...full chromed out 235 Stovebolt 6 cyl in a 51 Slantback with 13's and aVisor, etc...Really wild murals under the hood, trunk, On the hood, trunk,etc...

    Hell, I just like Cars, Trucks, etc whether they are lowered, lifted, chopped or not...I love T buckets and old trucks...I love old Stock model T's and such...I love OLD Greyhound Busses and Mack Trucks...

    I've travelled to Nascar, Tuff trucks, rock crawls, mud races, desert races, tractor pulls...haven't been to a swamp buggy race (yet)...and I've even been to a Midget Toss (charity event at a Biker Rally)...

    I poke fun and admire all of it at the same time....I am a Motorhead... /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    <font color="purple"> you wouldn't know what a " DUB " was if you dropped one on yur foot /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif J/K
    honestly,, i don't get it either and i probably would never own one,,,but i will give them MAJOR props for all the custom fabricating that goes into that stuff. you've got to have big ones to just hack away on a $40,000 + vehicle and turn a dream and a vision into a moving piece of art. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif</font>
