Yeah, the turbo diesel itself is still capable, but I'm sure the tires aren't rated for any heavy use, low profile tires do not belong on a truck. and hitching a fifth wheel up to that would be a match made in hell. It looks like it might have a hitch on it still, but again, mating it to a trailer would be a nightmare. once it did manage to get connected, there's no suspension travel left to handle the extra weight introduced by the trailer, or something in the bed. riding on bump stops = no bueno.
not to mention a complete loss of any off road capability it may have had prior.

imo, its an oversized overpowered rice rocket.

As for towing even if the suspension had been upgraded and didn't move a inch I'd bet a grand that you couldn't get the toung jack on the trailer off the ground to pull the trailer.

And sadly this is what happens when someone does really good on the asvab and gets put into the navy's nuclear program and gets paid 3000 a month to start off with a raise every year and two raises every 2nd year and a 100k$ re-enlistment bonus in a tax exempt "war zone".

Not downing service members, I was in the navy in "Norfolk" and saw this shit all the time out of nuc's and others who made rank too fast and had too much $

I like it. I'd rather have it only slightly lowered instead of browered, but it's still tasteful, maybe with a nice set of chrome wheels (smaller wheels, hate big ones).

I'd rather have a lowered dually then a lifted. Sorry, but lifted duallys are the dumbest thing I have ever seen.

^ I like stock, maybe just the front raised to make it leveled. lifted is as useless as lowered in most cases on a truck like that.

LOL at you guys that say it's a waste of a truck. You act like you would be hauling all kinds of shit and be putting it to use every chance you got if you had a PSD. It's his truck and his money. He can do whatever he wants with both of those things. And just because it's lowered doesn't mean it isn't capable anymore.

Love it or hate that is a good buy. Sell the wheels, peel the decals, put springs back on it and that is one hell of a truck.

P.S. Wheels are #^@king ugly period.
