Default lowerd but still workable

hey here's my thoughts. i put my ktm and my quad in my truck and go out for some fun. so if i lower my truck can i still take my bikes and not have it drag bottom? was thinking bag the hole truck but just cant find money right now for air tank and compressors. so what do you all think will a regular drop like a 2/3 be ok and still hold that kind of weaght?

or should i drop it with a air bag system and add all the controls latter?

it's probably gonna be a sore subject but i'd just put the toys on a trailer so the majority of the weight is off the truck it's self if it's a major concern..

There's your answer. Lower the truck AND haul your toys.

you willl be fine with a 2/3 you can even do a 4/5 and haul stuff
as for air bags without the controls, you will need controls they all leak. i have to fill my truck every morning, 2 days and it is all teh way down

You could always drop it and if you have an issue just get a load level air kit that installs between the frame and the axle and helps lift the back of the truck up when its loaded.
