Because we had too much time on our hands, and a fabricator who wanted to help out. It looks factory, the lowering job and the 350 looks like it was there out of the factory. A new cross-member was fabbed to let the engine drop down a total of about 2-2 1/2inches. This also made some other problems with clearance and the fuel pump among others. The frame had to be notched out to allow me to HAVE a fuel pump. I would never have done this, mainly because it was simply too much work for what it accomplished, but we had the welder guy and hes got skills so we did it. It may corner better, but really how good can a truck handle? I know not all that good but this one seems to do well. I'll try to get pics of the conversion but my camera has been giving me troubles lately. Been trying to get a pic of my bike for the guys for some time now.
