Re: Porterbuilt Dropmember

I feel like we are on our way to another locked thread here. I think if you have an opinion on a product and would like to voice it then thats fine. But lets not stoop to the level of bashing each other for ones opinion. Bruce Bruce wasn't happy with his dropmember so he went a different route, its his truck and his money so he can do what he wants. Me personally; I am extremely excited to get my dropmembers in and have been and will be a proud supporter of Porterbuilt products. At the end of the day we all have our opinions but we can all still be friends!

Can you tell me why you are attempting to start a debate here?

We all know you are not satisfied with the results you got from your Porterbuilt experience. We also think its wonderful that you are now pleased with your recent purchase. We get it!

If you continue to try to create controversy on the topic, your not going to be pleased with the results.

Re: Porterbuilt Dropmember

I feel that Nacho said it best when he told Ramseys to... "Take it Easy"!

Let's do our best to keep the thread on topic. We ALL know the underlying sentiments, but let's just move on. If it is not a comment relative to the discussion don't bother posting it.

I am all game for well intended humor and even appreciate it in most instances.

With that said... Zoomin and Bruce Bruce, I am pretty disappointed that you chose a "cheese slicer" (which I am pretty confident that the image used was an egg slicer) and then the industrial tomato slicer????? Come on guys, everybody knows it is patterned off a "Dough Blender". Innovation at its finest.

Re: Porterbuilt Dropmember

Will the DM-DB4 come with a soft grip handle for easy install?

Re: Porterbuilt Dropmember

Never did I think I would see debate about a Porterbuilt DM and cheese/dough when I signed up here lol

Since the question was asked...

I like the DM because of the improvements in ride quality, performance and ease of installation. As an added bonus you get the coolest stance on the market imo!

If installed correctly, even with an LS swap, this thing is a cinch for any novice to install! I'm clear proof of that. It has altered the way I look at life!!

*** Now Amazon thinks I'm in the market for a new cheese slicer... ***

Nice thought... but then they would have to be 100% TIG welded... that would add quite a bit of time to the process.

Of course, I want get this low but I would like to know what kind of ride I can expect with the PB mild front and rear dropmembers (on bags). I have a low mile 5.3L (2008) and 4L70E I plan to drop-in soon. I'm looking to DD this ride until the wheels fall off (20x8.5 front and 20x10 rear). I look forward to feedback.

The ride quality of the Dropmember has had nothing but great reviews. I could tell you it rides amazing... but then I am the guy selling the parts, and what else am I going to say?

There are several board members running the Dropmembers and if you look through some of the threads regarding feedback on ride quality and handeling you will be able to firshand all the positive feedback.

The mild rear is essentially the same kit as the extreme rear that is installed in the orange truck, the only difference is that the notch is a few inches shorter. The ride quality of these two kits is the same. With the sleeved bags mounted outboard of the frame and off the rear of the axle, it doesn't get much better.

The Mild and Touring front have a different geometry than the Extreme version installed in the orange truck but yield a similar ride quality. It is a little hard to explain in words, but the most common response we get is that "it rides better than my new truck" and of course we all know it looks so much cooler!

A few members that actively participate on the forum, and have logged thousands of miles on our kits, that I am sure would be happy to give you feedback, are Dino, N2Billett, Delmo, and Mason... and I am pretty sure Lolife99 went for a pretty fun ride in one of our Dropmember Equipped trucks. He can give you his opinion as well.

Nate

I've logged-in to posts on this form a few members listed in the thread, which is what motivated me to roll my 1967 C-10 lowered and on bag. Thanks for the response PB and those members who have posted enlightening threads.
