5/7 Drop Thread

Thanks to jonny22107 (RPS) for jumping in on this with me it was a quick drop and notch. My transmission crossmember will go on soon and as soon as I can afford some new rear shocks (mine are bouncy as hell) we are cutting out the bed since my rear differential is smacking it pretty hard.

How I drove it for a week lol, 5-4 FTW!








Installed notch with fresh paint:


After and yes I am a pic ***** and these are also in the KY meet thread, oh well I'm proud.








oh, and a shaved tailgate and rollpan are next on the list.

Yep, unless you want a bumpy ride. Mine rides close to stock right now, I love it. I have only scraped 4 or 5 times also and I have had it dropped for about 2 weeks.

I'm not normally a fan of that body style lowered... but your truck pulls the look off sooo good.

I am going to get air shocks for a Nissan hardbody so I can adjust the pressure. They have the same mounts as Ranger shocks, but they are shorter so they work better on a lowered truck.

Thanks for the comments everyone they mean alot.

Looks nice! Low and level!
Once I get all the drama with this house taken care of, I'm gonna go the same route.
