7.5/11 Drop

That is a rough estimate lol, we are going to measure fender height tomorrow on it and a stock ranger for an estimate. We are trying to get the truck ready for Heritage 2K9 this year so this is how me and Jonny22107 spent the weekend. It is monoleafed with two inch blocks in the rear, and yes I kept the overload spring. For next year it should be bagged and 4-linked (I hope).

Better pics coming soon after the cuts are straightened and everything is cleaned up and painted!

I think I'd raise the back end up an inch or so, just to level it out.

Drop the front a lil more silly, not raise the rear.

Honestly is rides identical to my 5/7 drop, I love it! The step notch really made a difference, the only thing that sucks is that I still need to rig up some shock mounts.

Pretty much, if your going to go this low just save your money and bag it, or do something to the exterior than simple bolt ons, the bumper looks like **** being that low to the ground.

And those gas tank bungee cords look unsafe as hell, if your going to do it, do it right looks like as if this was rushed.

It's my truck, and read, it will be bagged.

I live across railroad tracks and I still get out everyday and have no major problems.

The gas tank...Did you read my post? I said everything is not done and it is freshly dropped. Bungee cords were used to get it home, we are going to use a metal strap similar to what was used under the truck and replace it with a fuel cell as soon as I can afford to.

Also simple bolt-ons? I personally like the look of a simple truck and if I can achieve the look I am going for with simple bolt ons I will, hell look at your truck how many bolt-ons do/did you have on your old truck?

Also this is not as stupid low and you think it is, go on an S10 forum or Mazda forum and look around.

I love this website and the people on it, but its people like you who can't keep their damn mouth shut that make me not want to post on here.
