Thanks for your comment. Do you feel better now? Empowered? There's nothing more exhilarating than pointing out the shortcomings of others. I hope you feel like it added a couple of inches for you because apparently you need them. But that's ok. A lot of people have that problem. I don't but it sounds like you do.
If the lowering impacts a truck's usefulness (IE cargo/payload capacity), then I agree. Worth noting that trucks have gotten taller over the last couple decades and that can also impact usefulness. Truck bed/tailgate height for loading/unloading and reach-over at the bedsides affects functionality as well.Let me go on record as saying if you lower a truck, it ceases to be a truck. It's an El Camino, or a car with a bed.
When I got out of the service(1972) I needed a truck. Went to checkout the Toyota and Datsuns. After driving "deuce and a halfs" and five tons, they seemed so tiny! Just the opposite. Ended up building a 56 Chevy panel.After using a Ram 2500 loaner in June '16 for a couple weeks...well, it was eye-opening just how HUGE that thing was. No thanks.
Ok, ok. Now I'm torn. Do I give a little? You know the devil on one shoulder and angel on the other? I think I have stupid man pride vs sensibility. Ok, you wanna give me 2wd dually I'll accept it as Martin Riggs tearing down a cliffside house with his rig. It's a movie but cool none the less. I guess I question what certain vehicles are built for. Reminds me of a "The Departed" quote...do you want to appear to be a cop or do you want to shove a 'dude's' head through a plate glass window. Ridgeline...what is it? Is that a truck just because it has a bed? El Camino/Ranchero, huh? I was behind a 2wd Ranger today that was trying to race me. He beat me in turns because I have a 4wd lifted truck and I know those things handle like cars. So is it really a truck because it handles like a car? But anyway, if you lower it and put a coyote in it, it's gonna be a beast. But it's not the same as an F150 nor Mustang with the same motor. So what is it?Lowering isn't my taste, but as others have mentioned, I respect the work some people put into lowering their tow rigs properly. Lowered duallies are popular here, as well, and they always catch my eye and I wonder how they ride - been in one that was air bagged properly and it drove like a Cadillac while towing a huge boat.
