i prefer sport trucks myself... but theres a place in my heart for lifted rides too... just sleep on it and do what you think would fit you better...

It is all about what YOU want to do. I debated on lifted my truck at first too, but what it came down to was that I had a 2wd and had always liked the "sport truck" look so i ordered a 4/6 and later on some 20s. I'm very happy with the look i have.

The decision is pretty much yours, the 03's look awful mean lifted ;)

Either way, you are gonna have a sweet truck. My .02 is that if you lift it, you gotta go huge or long travel that shit. I don't see a point of lifting a 2wd unless you do one of those.

I would drop it. I just think it would look "*******" to lift a 2wd.

Consider what you want and how you're gonna use your truck. Lowering might be an inconvenience.

I personally like how alot of people are lifting trucks and putting 20's with mud tires on them. There was a white NBS Tahoe in one of the mags a month or 2 ago that I loved that was done like this.

Yeah I'm liking the new way of lifting with 20's too. I have a friend who is wanting to do that. Lifting is also going to be way more expensive than lowering.

my vote goes to lowering it mainly b/c I'm not into lifted trucks, I like them but they are just not my cup of tea if you get my drift

How so?

A lifted truck looks like it would be much more of an inconvienence than a lowered truck. The few times i have put something in the bed of my truck it was incredibly easy because its so low to the ground. A lifted truck would make loading the bed much harder since you'd be bringing everything up an additional foot or so :anitoof: It also looks like you'd have more trouble parking a lifted truck with the huge tires and lack of visability in tight spaces from being so high up in the air.

I'm not saying a lowered truck is easy to drive, i'm constantly on "pothole lookout" when i'm driving, but I think both lifted and lowered have their drawbacks, you just have to know what is right for you.
