Ive heard that body dropping a daily driver isnt a smart thing to do. I really wanna bd my truck but its my only means of transportation, any opinions?:superhack

i dont feel there is anything wrong with a b/d daily driver. Bags are more impractical than a b/d. A body drop wont have mechanical failure like other mods.

Well, if it's done right I suppose it wouldn't change much. Only thing I'd be afraid of is riding low like I like to do, and instead of the frame smacking the ground on turns or bumps, it'll be a rocker panel or somethin. Lots of people do it with no problems.

ive heard that it will cause problems to the tranny and drive shaft,a buddy of mine's truck is body dropped, and he never had any probs with it till it became his only transportation,but it was also a ford.

Sounds like someone's body drop was done wrong.

Thing is, if done right, the geometry of the tranny to the axle is gonna stay the same. Only the came will come down, and you cut out for clearance anyways.

My truck will be my daily, and its channelled 2.5" on 22's.
