When you don't know what you're doing, it's best to do it quickly.

And when Iím gone, you can call me foolish but hopefully not boring. I will have lived.

The more I learn about women, the more I like my car.

It rides better than filling the full. I wanted the whole truck aired down to a low height but he just added to much air.

Its adjustable, so who cares. If he wants to drag the bumper so be it

The best ones I've seen are set up in such a way that ride height is at the right pressure to ride well and have a good raked stance. That's just my preference though. Having adjustable suspension that has to have the vehicle sitting weird at optimum air pressure defeats the purpose, in my opinion.

I just don't understand wanting to drag bumper. Each their own

The truck rides perfectly fine at full height. But the less are you having them the softer the ride. And that truck would look hideous with the raked stance just my opinion. That truck was built to have the same bumper height in the front and the back. So it's sits dead level

I have to agree with you LB. It would look hideous, hanging down in the front. I think long low cars have to be level or lower in the back. One way to make a long low front raked car look even worse, is put fender skirts on it. Now, fender skirts on a tail dragging similar car look great.
Good lookin' truck LB.

Nobody said hanging down. To me trucks look best with a slight rake to the front. Slightly lower in the back is a long ways from tail dragging. All I'm saying is I don't understand having the front aired up and the tail dragging down, like a lot with air ride like to do. Like I said that's just my opinion.

Two examples, very slight rake nice low height.




Anyways, enough hijacking.
