no they won't. I tried over there too. I've been tempted to get the Tundra Racing kit, but then I decide that there are too many flooded streets around here on a regular basis.

Custom Tacos would help this guy out. They seem to be into that sort of thing. Toyota Nation is not.

yeah man, I'm adding huge chrome spinners to it.

I'd like to lower my truck only came lifted. I'd prefer to have a vehicle that handles better on the road, can still haul loads, and gets better gas mileage.

Different strokes for different folks! Same reason not everyone drive the same vehicle with the same color.

Well for me lowering the truck helps with the work i do..

I spend 7 to 20 weekends a year at a race track. i take folks on the track to drop them off and pick up stuff.

At time you have to move at speed. So lowering the truck and stiffening up the springs can help me get around safer..

nothing like having to get around a track safely and at speed while being taped by speed vision. If you mess up then heads roll...

But slamming is a bad idea unless you like low riders..
