    this is just me, but i feel a lowered truck is a wasted truck. very little left that you can do with it then. no off roading, no hauling anything, no running over animals along the highway, no real fun. it makes no better than a car restricted to the road. i have a lowered car for the road. the truck got what its supposed to have, a lift kit and big tires. even with 600lbs of audio equipment hooked up in it i can still go off road with ease.
    94 sub 6inch lift 34inch bfg mt. massive rework project soon. the audio system hit 150.3db so now its time to rebuild and try for 155db. mudpuppy is also getting a new engine, rebuilt ifs, dual 500amp 15.1vdc alts, 5 5,000amp batts, ant the combined wattage with the new system should be close to 15,000watts. this is going to be a wild ride boy and girls.

    Not sure where Adam lives but here in Alberta we don't have front plates. I used to roll with a vanity plate of some graffiti my buddy did on my old truck, but the new one doesn't even have holes in the front bumper for a plate and I'm not about to drill them.

    If it is a 2wd truck lifting it would be a waste of money. Nothing sillier than wasting money with no performance gains in my opinion. Why drop $2k on all the stuff to lift a 2wd that will probably see as much off road action as a mild lowered truck? I guess it all depends on what you use the truck for. I use mine as a daily driver and to haul things in the bed. Even with it lowered I can still use the load air bags to help out with the heavy stuff.

    I'm actually kinda curious as to who lied to you and told you that you cant use it to haul stuff? LOL.. i think I've hauled MORE with it lowered than i have in the past honestly. And last i checked.. two lm7 long blocks wouldn't fit in a camaro. I just hauled both of those with no issue across Texas, could have filled the entire bed if i had the cash right then. AND.. i have a system in it.. but that's just me. It's actually a hell of a lot easier to load stuff into the back of it.

ID:	37531 when is the last time you loaded a king size 450lb mattress into a truck with a 12" lift?? I bet it was easier for me. AND!!!!! Even my beloved Grama can get into my vehicle with no problem.

    ...but that's just me. And that's the beauty of it. It's all a matter of personal opinion. Yes, I do miss being able to go to the ranch with Truck Norris, but then again.. why not just buy an older model 4x4 and lift it a little? have the best of both worlds?? (ps.. that's what I'm doing)

    For this build.. it's lowered. I dont need extra opinions trying to state cases as to why you think I'm retarded for lowering my truck, you either like it.. or you dont. Take dont's elsewhere. I have my reasons. Thanks.

    I have seen some preety nice lowered trucks, but like others I prefer my truck up a bit higher than the curb. It gives me an excuse to boost her up in the passengers seat , as I don't carry a step stool.LOl.
    You are all correct , it is about ones personal preference and if we all liked the exact same stuff , it would be pretty boring around thesse parts. I enjoy my ride and wish I could add to it but at this time I can't. But I do appreciate hard work done by others to get the ride they like.

    So lets all agree to disagree and find the positive in others projects. Me included.

    with my lifted suburban i loaded about 1300lbs of house hold goods inside of it and had a trailer hooked up with a little over 7000lbs of shop equipment. hit the interstate at 70mph with cruise on and the a/c at full tilt. i would hate to think of a lowered truck of any kind hauling that much weight.

    Looks like it has turned into a pissing match hahaha. I like my dd lifted so I can see over everyone but I got a muscle truck as well that's slammed. But if your gunna drop a newer truck just bag it and it's gotta be fast or it's Pointless.

    A 450lb mattress? I call shenanigans on that. I used to deliver mattresses for a living and I could lift a King size over my shoulder....there is no way I can lift 450lbs.

    Not trying to troll you, just poking fun.

    I miss my lowered truck. It also had rear helper bags so I would be able to haul just as much as it could from factory. They aren't everyone's taste but I'm into them even though I now own a 4x4. There are a lot of times that I want to run down to the dealership and pick up a new 2wd to slam and cruise in.

    My lifted Sierra when I get done. Just to prove that I swing but ways. (Not in the homo way either)

    What year was that s10? Growing up my dad had a lowered '88 S10. He put a pool in the back for me to swim in, I loved that truck.
