anyone have pics of a 5/7 on a rcsb with 20's??
DJM makes a kit Calmax 3 .. this is the only sucky picture I could find. Too low in my opinion for a daily driver ... go with a 4/6 or bag it.

thanks for the pic bcubed will i have problems going over speed bumps will i have to notch the frame anything like that the only reason im opposed to bagging it is the ride its too bouncy and handles like shit im not going to be auto crossing it but when i go the lake the roads are windy and i want it to be able to actually handle on those roads. i like the look of the 5/ 7 too :drool:

you'll scrape the hell out of speed bumps with a 5/7. A properly installed air suspension rides better than any static drop IMO. And with air, you won't be stuck so damn low all the time.

thanks for the advise so air it is what are my options?> whats a good setup with out nothing the hell out of my frame?

You can use a bolt in notch .. not drastic. First question I have, do you still want to be able to tow with your truck, like a boat? If so, you need to look into the Air Ride Air bar for the back :imo

yea still want to tow but if i use that bar could i still put my bike in the back?
Sure, you dont cut or modify the bed at all .. and you will have at least 9-11 inches of lift in the back so you wont bottom out.
