Sorry if this is a controversial post, but I live in the city, drive a 2wd truck, and dont want to look like some kind of dumb redneck with a jacked up truck that never sees dirt. My truck is lowered 2" in the front and 2" in the rear. When I can afford it I'm flipping the rear axle, and getting full drop-ibeams and slamming it.

She's low

I wanna drop mine eventually. But till then I'm looking for 31s for it or leveling it for 33's. Drop I beams, axle flip, new exhaust, NICE wheels and performance tires cost a very pretty penny.

What did you do to drop the front 2"? Just lowering springs? Do the wheels show any negative camber because of it?

I'm planning on doing the DJM Dream Beams and shackles and hangers in the rear for a 3/4 drop. I still want the rear to be a touch higher so, I'm gonna drop it, then get my measurements for wheels and tires. I'd like to do a 18" up front and a 20" in the rear but, the measurements after the drop will dictate that. I'll post a bunch of pics during the process. Should be started in a month or two, c'mon taxes!

It's just my opinion and since everyone is entitled to their own... I would have to say that lowering a truck is like trying to eat tomato soup with a fork. It's stupid and pointless. I don't mean to rag on all the lowered trucks because it's what you like and its your truck, so do what you want, but always remember that fat chicks can't climb, but they surely can fall down into a lowered truck!!
