Home improvement project leads to truck mod
This morning I was building a walkway for the front of our house. I used those 80# bags of cement 20 of them to be exact. Lately some people have been telling me to lower the rear of my truck lol well today I got a glimpse of what it would look like. I'm not to big on the level look & may just keep the stock ride height for now. Anyways heres a picture...

hehe...well that's one way to get an idea of how it would look lowered. I like it, it's different, all the black trucks are now lifted with big wheels. Either way I think the truck would look sweet...it's a black Chevy

If you level, bring the nose up imo. But that's just my opinion. I've seen some really good looking lowered silverados/sierras. I just prefer the lifted look. Again, just me. As Amac said, either way it'll look good.

you should level the front then put bags in the rear so when you load it like that again you can just lift the rear level for the job.. Then you get 2 mods out of the home improvement jobDavid

I'm with Amac, with a black Chevy or GMC it's hard to go wrong.
