Or if your a do it yourself fanatic get someone thats done it before or in the business to help you out. Lets not forget everyone crawls before they walk. Gotta learn somehow.ScojoDak said:ultimatebluedak, can you hear what people are trying to tell you? Take a hint bro. Nobody is disputing the look or the function of a body drop. However, a body drop is NOT a project for a part time rookie backyard weekend truck builder. It is a project that involves serious mathematics, engineering, geometry and welding skills. Not to mention a garage lift to raise the body/bed off the frame. Go ahead and do it yourself and maybe you'll get lucky. You might even get lucky and not kill yourself, your passengers and other people when a body mount fails on the freeway. Leave a project like that to the professionals. That's what they get paid for!
tru-dat...however i would do a suspension drop before i would even think about a body drop.studlybilly said:Or if your a do it yourself fanatic get someone thats done it before or in the business to help you out. Lets not forget everyone crawls before they walk. Gotta learn somehow.
You would not "have" to body drop it no, merely notch the rear frame for axle clearance and possibly the front. The main focus is safety, and here rescently I've been seeing some very scary end results. If you clearly dont know what your doing then at least have a knowledgeable friend sit there smoking a cigarette in a long chair going "Nope, thats not right, you need to do this....". Being babysat may be a hurt in pride, but you can have pride in knowing it was done right.Dj Wolf said:First off i want to make it clear i dont know that much about body droping or laying frame, but if i get air bags and want my dak to touch the ground, wouldnt i need to do a body drop? or would i just ned to cut out the wheel wells and part of the bed for axel clerance?
