Your truck is rice also. APC clear corners guess who started that? No chrome you have silver? I know who runs that style all the time.
Those guys are stupid to pay the extra money then just eliminate it. They obviously dont know about trucks b/c if they wanted to lay out they would of never bought an xtreme.
Not driving around but go to big truck shows you see a lot of V8 S10s. Actually you see more bagged and body dropped S10s than you do xtremes. So the xtreme stands out at shows.
Actually clear corners and taillights started with the minis, the ricers just made it more prevalant. Now altezzas are rice. As for chrome, well its just ghetto, polished or silver is CLEANER and whiter. Thats why we have, including yourself, clear corners. They blend. You probably have those ghetto fabulous chrome envoy inner door handles dont you? No bling bling for me thanks. I dont need people to think I have money, rather class and sense. I dont follow a trend, I set my own. Thats why all my simple and CLEAN show cars and trucks always won at shows, thank you.
You are right, anyone that buys an extreme and takes the ground effects off are idiots for spending the extra money. But werent they idiots for spending the extra money on the gfx to begin with? They were young and dumb and came to their senses, especially once they found out they couldnt lay out. Gfx are only good for a suspension limiter, sense they keep you from going all the way down.
Yes there are more bagged and body dropped s10s at shows, because, guess what? No gfx to get in the way. And the Xtremes do stand out, not because there are less of them, but because they are tacky. Gfx dont make your truck look lower, because it is not just about closing the gap to the ground, it is about closing the gap between your fender and the tire. You can run your gfx to the ground, but if you still have this massive gap above your tire, it still looks like a 4x4 with a skirt. Reminds of back in the day when Lund was so hot for their freakin visors and cap extnders and those damn nasty louvered extended cab window covers. Tacking crap onto your truck or car is nasty. Less is more.
Now if you let any of this above bother you, you take things too seriously. I just like to see what people flame up. It is histerical. In the end I dont care about what you do to your truck. I just say do your thing and dont build your car or truck to satisfy someone else. You spent the money, so you need to be happy. Just check yourself before you flame someone else. As for me, I am just an instigator. I loe startin s**t. So quit takin this so seriously and SMILE. Lets just have a group :hug:
