i don't know if someone wheeling an unlifted, stock tire 2wd truck alone is Gangsta or insane.
i guess if you like doing that then thats all that matters.
me, i'm too scared to even wheel my 4x4 with A/T 32's because of all the horror stories of people "breaking stuff" while wheeling and i can't afford the cost to fix it or have a place to fix it.

There are not enough slammed, let alone modified Ranger-based Mazdas out there.

It would look sick with a drop. It just sucks that considering how popular Rangers are, everybody ignores the Mazdas yet they're the same truck.

seeing how much he wheels with his truck and goes camping often it would be a bad idea to drop it although it would look sick

Then don't go wheeling. Simple as that.

If you are afraid of breaking your truck, can't afford to fix it, and don't have another vehicle to drive, then I would say don't wheel the **** out of it.

If you want to take it out every once in a great while go for it. That's what Melt is doing, obviously.

like the title says its a fairly easy place just a big hill and a few berms and such. As for breaking stuff as long as you arent rockcrawling in high burning up your clutch or hitting mudholes doing 50 i think the trucks are pretty well built and arent gonna break stuff too easy. Not sure why you have 32s if you dont wheel, and dont tell me snow cause your truck would be fine on 29s for that purpose.

I dont "wheel" alone in mud anymore after getting stuck in wisconsin last summer. And i always have a tow strap in the truck so if i do get stuck when out alone hopefully someone nice comes along eventually.

i was about to buy a thunderbolt 2/3 from shanes brother and had some unexpected expenses come up, then after i started thinking about it more it seems like while i dont off road a lot, i do go enough to enjoy it somewhat and think that while being lowered would be cool 90% of the time, the 10% when i wouldnt mind rollin stock height would suck

As for mazdas, when i found out they were the same truck i figured it would help me broaden my search, and its what i ended up with.

Michal Savage FTMFW. Physcological nudity is a great book as are all his others. Nice flexing. I have done some crazy stuff in my 2wd's. I vote not to slam it because that 10% of you will get really mad when you wanna go play.
