    Hey the strap dragger was a whole 2 feet longer. It was so long more than one person looked at it funny and asked me if it was custom (like as in stretched, limo style) - it just looked so weird to see an extended cab longbed slammed, I guess.

    The longbed 92 after front end rebuild and switching to 20's, 245/40/20 if I recall, hell of a size to find in stock anywhere when you're in need of one though

    Nice trucks. Yeah my vote is go as low as you can. You’ll always want more eventually. Lol. My truck is 5/7 with 2 inch shackles. So it’s a 5/9. Custom mini step notch, no cross member under the bed floor, rolled fenders and bolts taken out of the wheel wells. Tires are 255/35/20 and 275/40/20 rear. You’ll drag and rub but it’s a low rider. I’ve put over 200 thousand miles on this setup with this truck. You’ll get lots of people thinking your on bags and it’s there in shock when you tell them it’s static.

    i have to ask, what bolts are you taking out of the wheel wells and what did you gain from doing this?

    I just took them out so they wouldn’t cut the tire. It’s only on the passenger side that hold the air box. Different years might not have the bolts. There just right at the top of the wheel well where the tire is going to bottom out and hit. One of these days I need to build some new wheel wells and raise them up.

    Gotcha! I wasn't sure if you had some magical trick of remove a bolt and allowing the fender well to move up a tad...lol. Mine hits more than I want it to. But since I'm swapped I don't have anything bolted my fender wells

    Thanks for the reply!
