Just mod it correctly.

None of these are trucks on 40's and 30" wheels which is the truck that started this debate.

then they cant handle it...you know what happens when a truck is squatted like that? front end is light which affects drivability and especially safety

I know this but still with a stock it'd be doing the same thing.

37's probably. But that doesn't mean anything. You can put 37's on them with a leveling kit

Plus he cannot tow that safely since he bought a lift where his springs sag out so badly. If he towed loads on a regular basis with that truck he would have airbags.

well yeah, it still has the same capabilities of the stock truck. But a stock truck would be 10 times safer on the road.

no it would not...if the owner had any brains(which he clearly doesnt) he would have put the money into a good set of airbags

This, you start messing with the suspension a lot and then you affect the trucks ability while modifying it in another way.

No it wouldn't. He has springs that have severally decreased his payload capabilities. He probably got some made for a better ride. That tractor weighs maybe 12k lbs. Probably not even a 6 series.

The way I see it, when any auto manufacturer puts out their equivalent of an F250/F350, which its main use is for towing, they're going to make it as optimal as possible for that purpose stock. So when you start messing around with that, who knows.

On the lines of the Travelall, Dodge had one similar, with 4X4, it was one badass looking truck. I can't remember what they called it though.

Here's one, they were Carryall's.

Power Wagon is what Dodge called them>>>>
