Ha. Looks like I have a twin brother. I bought mine new in 1997 during the sport truck movement. Did all the work within the first month of ownership and she as been faithful all these years. I started with a full phantom grill and switched to the 88-93 grill. Been like that for going on 22 years.

Re: Show lowered 88-98 trucks

Thanks guys, It seems everything done to this truck was done ok but not great.
Everlet have you ever towed anything or hauled much weight. I'm going to use this truck and I hate to raise it back up because it sits pretty good.

Re: Show lowered 88-98 trucks

I used to tow a 20í boat and it was never an issue when it was a 4/6 drop. I even towed an 18í steel deck trailer with a 1956 pickup on it but that tow was riding on the bumpstop

Now that Iím at a 4/8 drop, I havenít towed anything. I do have air shocks in the back in the event I need to raise it up a few inches for towing purposes.

Re: Show lowered 88-98 trucks

That looks really good! Super clean. What mods were needed for clearing those, front and rear?

In your thread about the drop where I was talking about the rear being as low or lower than my old '93 with 8" rear drop. Well, that explains it!

Re: Show lowered 88-98 trucks

I feel I'm going to have to roll my fenders this summer. May do 20's.
Well, now it sits with a small bit of rake. I took a few bags of sand out, pulled off the crazy huge and heavy tow hitch (gonna do a roll pan and hidden hitch).
I'll try to get some pics again if the weather eases up.
