And you thought that you had lift

My girlfriend's little brother works here in town doing stereo installs. The shop where he works sponsors different show cars and this is one that they just finished.

In Utah that truck is still legal. When they were seting it up they had to remove the Utah plates and put ones for the Sponsor on, but it was awesome to see it drive down the road.

It can MOVE too??? No way!!!!

No thank you...

EDIT: btw... does anyone else notice how the shocks are sitting such that it only has like an inch or so of up-travel? They stick these huge reservoir shocks on it and don't put them such that it can have more up-travel? why? I guess if you live your life on the showroom floor, things like that aren't as important...

not only does it need double bypass resovoir shocks, but it needs duals.... with only 1/2 an inch of travel.

if its a show truck that could actually offroad, or has the potential to offroad... cool

this thing looks like a big turd to me

In addition to the 1/2" of up travel like others said, what is holding it up? I don't see any springs. On the one picture, there is a tube with "Johny joints" at each end, and a hydraulic line hooked at the top, but that won't give any cushion, or travel? Are the axles solidly attached, or maybe only offer some side to side movement? It has a sway bar up front, so I guess that could be used to determine side-to-side position, and you could have a closed loop hydraulic setup on the axles. As in it will let one go down if the other goes up by transferring fluid back and forth?

Just looks kind of weird.
