    So today i parked next to another burb in a lot and noticed that truck was sitting ALOT lower than mine. I didnt check to see if it was 4wd, but iw as wondering if some one could tell me how high it is to the front bumper or the top of the hood over the wheel well or something. Cause the guy we bought the truck from modified it some. He had lockright in the back and a flowmaster on it and some other little things. There are no blocks so i am not sure though.

    Look at your front leaf packs. How many leafs are in each one? Do they arch like a smile or a frown?

    [/ QUOTE ] refering to the vertical things, they're not stock on that sub you can tell if you see it in person.

Regarding pushing shopping carts, my friend knocls em around all the time in his nissan stanza so u aparently dont need a metal bumper /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
