Is there any way to lower a F450, like with a lowering flip kit or do i have to stay riding high?

The only thing you can really do is remove the blocks from the rear and lower the rear so its more level with the front.

Problem with lowereing the 4x4 trucks is that you can go more than a little bit in the front without the driveshaft hitting the floor.

Exactly, not everyone wants a 10" lift on 40s. Sadly, lowered trucks are generally frowned upon here.

Well its unfortunate that stereotypes are what they are. Lifted trucks are for rednecks with no teeth, lowered trucks are for ghetto people with pants hangin off their ***

Not being a 'poopy pants' guy, I would like to lower my truck 2 - 3 inches to hook up to my gooseneck horse trailer...already raised the trailer suspension 2 inches to accommodate my '01 Dodge cummins...this truck is 3 inches taller.

Would rather have my trailer go level down the road than pointing up in the air.

Well unfortunatly there is not a whole lot you can do to your truck. You could remove the blocks from the rear end and probably go down two inches in the back. I dont think there are many or any options for lower the front of the 4x4 trucks.
