Would Timbrens be a good idea in this situation?

    Or just drive the truck off a cliff?

    He pulled up next to me in traffic today and I had to get out the camera.

    Isn't that tires low on air? It look like they were flat.

    Yes It will help hold front end higher but hope frame don't end break. :mechanic:

    I'm thinking it's a reflection of Bernie's arm(in Bernie's window).

    Timbrens and cranking up the bars would fix most of that.

    And... not sure if it's just the way the pic looks or not. But, a little air in the tires wouldn't hurt either! :dizzy:

    I saw one much better than that this week. Dodge Dakota with a 7 1/2 Fisher. Bottom of front fender wells were at least as low as the top of the tires, if not lower.

    Another 40psi in the front tires, 4 turns of the torsion bars and a minimum of 1000lb in the bed.

    Seems like every late model half ton I see looks exactly like that. They just haven't got a clue, and the dealer doesn't tell them either.
    90% of their plowing difficulty could be corrected with ballast alone. I've tried to tell a lot of people over the years just to try it and see what a difference it makes, but usually they just say it plows fine like it is, it's four wheel drive.

    Apperantly you need to do the same.

    jk. no offense to you personally. but i hate all people that drive dodges because they think their truck is the best when facts are that their not. Dodges are cheep and decent chevys are expensive and the best.
