X2. I've always liked lowered trucks, but never liked the idea of having the truck 3-4 inches off the ground 100% of the time. I'll be going with bags if I ever get around to dropping one


Check with some of the guys that have posted pics of their rings in the lowered dually thread, might be able to get an idea of what it will look like. There's a black one riding around here CC LB with 24ish wheels and either a 2/5 or 3/5, looks SICK!!!

Kp componentsmakes some of the best suspension parts that i know of. Used them on my harley f150. If not check out air ride tech. More pricey but may offer a full kit.

Sounds about right. Do it right the first time though. Spend the money on the right parts and it will ride like a dream and tow great. Should look killer too
