wtf is your problem man, if your under the stock hieght for the model truck you have your lowered And actually my truck sits lower then my friends 05 2wd reg cab xl..

It would be sweet if i could actually lowered it more, but i cant because of the angle of the cv's, Besides any lower it wouldnt even be the style im going after.

Its the ' unexpected '. People can laugh at lowered trucks all they want, I don't see ANY of the ' lifted ' trucks on this site having a chance at the track on me endless they ' monster truck ' me and crush my ride first

Then again.. maybe if we raced across a field or lawn ( long story.. I wont get suckered into that one again! Was worth the 50-100$ )

I just can't see how all these ' lifted ' folks want to bang on lowered rides when 95% of they time they are on pavement and that ' lift kit ' does nothing for them.

Lowering kits do absolutely nothing for them either. It aint like they are gonna give any kind of performance gain.

Want to take a corner with me?

Having those blocks on your axle also promotes wheel hop. Try launching from a dig with and without those blocks, HUGE difference.

stability control yes..... any gain in performance would just be from running smaller tires
curves are lowered trucks specialty

I dont mine lifting or lowering rangers. Its a matter of personal preference. I do hate when people say their stuff is better. Its all a matter of opinion.

My truck plays in the mud haha.

Jake- rock crawlin is something that torison bars just cant do, you got like what a total 6"suspension travel.

Performance includes handling, increasing your speed in and out of turns.

haha he has more into his suspension than you, you still have stock suspension essentially besides cranking the torsion bars.

Your 200 dollar body lift isnt going to keep you from bottoming out on those rocks, dont you have some curbs to be flexing on?

Plus some trucks don't look good lifted if I tryed to lift my 93 Splash I would get laughed at off the street and prob want to go kill myself because my truck would look so dumb. This is why I choose the lowering option. I like both but myself I am lowering.

I was filming you. Its tough to watch the road and chase you at the same time.

Not just smaller tires. Theres much more to it then that.

I've seen a LOT of ignorant lifted truck owners that don't have a clue. Buy a kit and bigger tires.. Your all done. There ARE a few exceptions like Beard and those running SAS setups that had to fab up a bunch of items and go part hunting. Most lifted and lowered trucks are just a run to the parts store.

There are those whom bag things or decide to just make their own or do things nobody gave any support to ( SAS, Dropped torsion barred trucks.,. etc.. ) But for the most part.. Theres many people giving an opinion with no mileage behind it.

Your going rock crawling with torsion bars? That would be a sad event. As for mud.. I've been known to go through some Mud in Centralia and some ' mild ' off-roading. I BEAT on my truck, its a toy. It breaks, I just build it stronger, faster, better. I don't run to parts stores and ' buy ' something from everyone elses opinions. I make my own.

Yall know what i meant. It just made me mad when someone above said they do not know why people lift their trucks if they dont gain anything. I feel like its the same way with lowering a truck. Its a matter of personal preference and opinion. It does not make me mad or anything. Its not my truck anyway. I just dont like when the lifted or lowered guys think one is better than the other. Respect each others opinions. Pless215 is a good buddy of mine anyway.
