    I pretty much agree with the consensus. Stock height to mid lift for me. Over 6 inches of lift is a little much in my opinion. I like the look, just wouldn't want it for myself. The only lowered trucks I've seen that I ever liked were 50's models as well. Any other truck should be used as a truck. You pretty much eliminate the whole point of having a truck when it's lowered. If I wanted something lowered I would just buy a car. But that's just my opinion. To each his own. All of that being said, I've seen folks tastefully lower trucks and they look ok. I just wouldn't ever do it.

    And Lancer your truck is as high as i would EVER go... Since where i go it isnt always about ride height but about traction...

    To many people around my area, in my opinion at least, buy trucks and lower them so close to the ground they can barely drive down the road in them. I personally prefer a lifted truck, as long as it isnt too high up. A few inches at the most is my choice. I have to say though, the stock height on the 07 suits me just fine.

    To me, lowering a truck is the same as lifting a sports car.... it ain't right.

    I think this sums it up, I could not have said it better mysef.
