lol as low as you can go with that thing is going to be stock xlt 2wd height which isnt "lowered" or "slammed"

Its a nice truck, I would buy it definitely if it had a 5spd.

The painted are cover is definitely a nice mod on a 07 reg cab, but then of course im kind of biased on that one.

There is a 2wd stock xlt sitting next to it. They are the same height. Well within 1 inch. This truck already sits low. It will be pretty low I hope

What if you put on a set of the 08/09 keys plus lowered the t-bars? And then sell the ones on there now.

Your truck looks pretty sick. I wanted a 2wd jacked up on 38s as compared to my 4wd on 35s. Im pretty big on just looking awesome. If i want to 4wheel i might as well just get an ATV.

I say lift it or get a coil sprung truck to drop. Don't drop a 4x4. I was under the impression you were trying to have ya some youngins. A 2 door Ranger isn't very practical for haulin kids around.

I personaly have a problem with people driving trucks when all there used to is cars, but thats just my paranoia. The price is right so you cant beat it. If she isnt going to wheel it then I say keep it stock height and give her some good rims.....just in case she gets into the skids she has 4wd to get her out. Tint it with mild exhaust and a bed cover and make sure it has L/S

x2 I love mine with 31's and T-bars cranked. High enough to do a lil off roading but not so high that it makes street driving not fun.

Just get some good all-terrains and rims, and do performance mods!
