I am really thinking about dropping my truck. IDK though I am still tossing the ideas around in my head. I guess if I do it and dont like it I can always SAS it since it would be hacked apart anyway. Damn thats more motivation for me to do this!

im gonna have to go with the crowd and say drop it.

ive got a SAS'd ranger, its fun and i get to go wheeling but its pricey and not that practical to drive on the street at all.

if you do it right it will look great dropped.

I just need to find some stock spindles but that should not be hard on a site that is mostly lifted trucks.

EDIT: Just put a want to buy ad for stock spindles in the members classified section.

Definitely drop it, your truck would look much better dropped than SAS'ed. I really like those wheels Korey posted up.

After walking out of my work and seeing my truck lifted I cant drop it I am doing the SAS I will get an F150 Screw and drop it but I cant do that to my truck I love its stance. I am currently looking for a D44 or D60 probably the D44 just cause I am not going to wheel it much at first.
