The railroad tracks are pretty busy, but my buddy was in the drivers seat ready to go if a train was coming. Those are the tracks I have to cross everyday on my way to and from whereever and I have yet to get stuck on them.

ok, now I dont mean to sound like a dick here... but whats the point fo lowering a truck THAT much? I mean I can see lowering a truck yet still be functional.

When someone lifts their truck its still functional. how is that functional? if your gf sits in the bed youll rip the bumper off trying to move it...

I just dont understand.

Thats not to say I dont think you did a good job at keeping it rolling while having it so low to the ground, I just cant see the point.

Because its bad *** lol. People always think lowered trucks are not functional but that cant be farther from the truth you just have to go slow and avoid bumps but other then that you can pretty much do anything a truck should do.

I am running a step notch so there is really no bed and this is temporary until my wife's 1972 Datsun 521 is low static and driveable. The truck will then be bagged.

I also have a daily and use this truck mainly for shows, I love it! Different strokes for different folks as they always say. But I love lifted trucks as well, pretty much anything custom, I just hope that the lifted guys can respect a slammed mini as well.
