Not my cup of tea but I can appreciate the work you put into it. To me, slamming a truck (especially a 4x4) is just pure tragedy.

Thanks , I would never slam a 4by , since dropping it down it handles better than most cars , like your 4by , looking for a 4by in the future , had a 79 longbed 4by in 79 , miss that truck.

Hey Ken,
Thanks for starting this thread, I like the look. I prefer the lowered trucks smoothed out, "shaved handles minus emblems".
I have some under constuction views in my gallery.

LOTS of work left to do... good thing the winters here are so long. I built a car last winter, so i should be able to have this truck finished with the exception of paint by mid April, 2009. I have never been one for slammed or lowered trucks, but then again, this is the first 2wd i have ever owned... and, if i dont like it, i can always put it back to stock height pretty easily.

SWEET!

They look sleek when lowered. Keep us up to date on your progress.
Good luck with it.


Nice Mustang in the background.

looking good guys. I like the look of a tastefully lowered truck. I got some lowered pics but I ***** it out enough so I will enjoy everyone's rides instead.

john, looks like you are making good progress. let me know if you need anything.

psquare7575 that is one fine truck, it is very tasteful, sure some like them dragging them on the ground, but i prefer them almost! dragging the roof when i pull into the garage! if ya know what i mean! lol, my truck was originally a rwd truck, but since the mint f150 4x4 frame, that weak rotten f100 rwd frame is gone! man those rear springs are weak as kittens! one foot step from Nicole Richie would send the bumper to the ground! the 4x4 rear springs where given the 4 inch blocks and added more springs! that rear end is solid! and stiff too! you would need a sumo to jump on it to move it! lol
