    The offroad equivalent would be a 12 inch body lift.

    yeah umm you are really wrong about that... Body drops are respected, not like body lifts...

    Maybe that is what is wrong with the low rider crowd. I would suspect that that would be frowned upon (at least I do)in their crowd, not praised.

    I bet it looks dorky as hell going down the road. Probably not very functional either.

    very poorly executed. i actually considered a bodydrop on my C1500, just to tuck the frame up under the body a little better, but still planned on lifting it.

    Yep..pertty common around here. Dump the bags and drop it on the ground. One guy told me it was a pretty good anti-theft device and it couldnt be towed. :haha:

    Hehe... Can't be towed... We towed one at work once. Some local college kid had hundreds of expired parking tickets at the local college (Montclair State University). He did the same thing, dumped the air and sat it on the frame. Well, we went there saw it, and formed a plan. Broke into the bed (hard tonneau) and jumped his compresssors to fill the bags back up. Then towed it back to the yard and and sat it back down on the frame. He was not very happy about the towing bill either, with the several hundred doaalr labor fee! And no, there were no breaking and entering or related charges ever filed. He was pissied, but still kind of impressed...

    Slammin' a truck makes as much sense as this chick. I don't believe in mods that adversely affect performance.

    lowered CG, infinitely adjustable spring rates, guaranteed no wheel hop. yup, sounds WAY worse than axle wrap. :screwy:

    i highly doubt the truck pictured is in fact "driveable",,,,,look at the body alittle better, and other components on and in the truck,,,,things just aren't right, just a show thing.
