    Not really look at the pole right behind the truck..

    If we "assume" it is straight up and down

    The pole in the back round and the horizon line are not indicators of a slope or flat land.

    It is as bad as it looks the front tire is stuffed in the wheel well and the back is ready to come up off of the ground.

    It needs the bars turned up and some timbrens would not hurt ether.
    Of course it also needs #500-#700lbs of weight in the back

    what wrong?

    1. Someone doesn't know how to install Timbrens or crank the TBs.

    2. There is no snow on the ground.

    3. That spoiler on the roof is not my style.

    Considering that is a 3/4 ton truck, no, that's not too much weight. As others have mentioned, it needs a couple turns on the torsion bars, and it needs about 500 lbs. or so placed behind the rear wheels. Those 2500 already have low front ends, so this isn't as bad as it looks.

    That's why you buy a vehicle with a solid front axle.

    It also looks like the right rear tire is on a slightly bump and the left rear is in a slight dip.

    I'd like to see this truck in the middle of a level parking lot with the plow raised and another photo with it down and in full float.

    I have basically the same exact truck in another color and while my front end is lower than I'd like its not that low when I'm on level ground.

    Yep no ballast is a big issue. Fisher Website I think wants 600 pounds. The second thing no one noticed is that The rear wheel on other side is probably up on that curb . Notice truck i sparked sideways to the curb. And is that a half ton with 7,6 on it? Hell the 2500 sits low with aplow on it.

    ^^ Its a 2500 with an 8' on it.

    I mentioned the rear tire being up higher, someone else did early on too.

    I don't think thats an 8 ftr. Look at the ribs and it only has one trip spring on the left, typical 7'6"er. Looks like a MM1 LD. I agree with the curb though. And a nice sander would be sweet in the back of that, tailgator.:cool:

    DOH! You're right. In that case that truck has no business with the front end being that low. He's either up on a curb, purposely lowered the front suspension or has a broken set of springs.

    2500 non HD, no ballast, and if you look at the horizon, yes the camera does look angled. tought to tell without anymore information if there's a problem or not. but to me, there's no problem. its not my truck lol.
