I thought that truck was a 1999 or 2000 with the updated front end

That blue Ranger is soooo clean. I love minitrucks,but I hate the garish graphics like on the yellow/green one. I do however, like the old skools 80s/90s style.

I'm more into monochromatic or two tones with very simple graphics or none at all.

This is my old truck. Wasn't bagged, but it was clean and simple, and yes,bright as hell lol. No crazy graphics,no oversized bling rims,no fiberglassed interior....just simple and old skool.

Both air and hydraulics will ride better than a stock ride or Cadillac when they are set up properly, its just a pain to maintain the leaks whether it be air or hydraulic fluid even though hydraulic fluid is definitely more of a pain to keep up as it makes a mess when it leaks obviously

as for being a midget in a bodydropped truck, obviously you have never heard of a stock floor bodydrop

I've always known hydraulics to be really stiff, I've been in a car with them once and it was really stiff. Too stiff for me to DD.

I don't know too much about the whole mini truck thing, but whenever I see pictures of people bodydropping a truck they always cut the floor out from the edges, move the body itself down, then fill in the gap with metal and weld it all up again. After they do this all theres usually like a step up that you see after you open the door and a lot less headroom. What do they do different in a stock floor bd?

Basically a complete frame so they dont have to cut the floor like a traditional bodydrop
