    I dont bash lowered trucks but that mod. just aint for me. most poeple i know buy SUV,s and Pickups for better ground clearance and better visibility especially at 4 way intersections. In N.E. wisconsin with our winters, to me its an impractical mod but to each his own. If you like the look, then your good to go!

    For the spoiler, you could go with the one that Regency was using for their RST trucks before they went under. There are still a couple of companies that are selling Regency parts.


    Here is a link to one site that has the spoiler for sale.

    I would tend to agree with this as far as practicality goes for where I live, but in Texas I guess the clearance is less of an issue. I love lowered trucks, but with the winters here they just aren't practical. I personally wouldn't be without a truck for winter here because I don't really think cars are even practical for some of our winters.

    Most definitely appreciate the insight on the wing, that looks alot like the one that i was already scoping out... and i believe i'm gonna go that route.

    And as far as the practicality of the lowering kit and my current use and area... I also have a wife who uses the truck when I'm in the field that stands 5'4" and has arthritis.. I plan on moving to the North Dakota area in a year or so, but I plan on getting a 3/4 ton dirtymax 4x4 sometime this year, so no issue there.

    You make me jealous. I wish I were somewhere with nice winters so I could have a nice, clean-looking lowered truck. But, for now I'll just make due with keeping my Avalanche winter-friendly and as stylish as possible at the same time.

    man PMF, I'm now eyeballing the entire front air dam, roll pan, and wing.. lmfao.. thanks alot for showing me that site, im thinking all three plus the keystone good hood with the drop would satisfy my desires to stand out in a crowd.. maybe paint my bowties white as well. Speaking of painting the bowties... is that how people usually do it? just by painting them?

    The west texas area is projecting a good 10 years.. north dakota's projected market is like twice that, but yea I've already started my rat-hole a couple years ago. My plan involves paying everything i buy off within a year or two or purchase along with the rat-hole. and when the bottom drops out, not all aspects drop out, i happen to work in the part that will completely shut down lol, so i plan to quit chasing rigs and get into the production side of it all, as when the boom stops, they dont stop production.. they just stop the exploration.
