just a tip...with the Xtreme, IMO, if you have to deal with snow at all, i would remove the drop for the winter...even i'm going to remove my 0/1 drop...lol....


personally, if i were you, do a 2/2 or a 2/3...it will look sweet...but you're pretty much stuck for the winter...either park the truck, remove the lowering kit, or drive as-is...the 3rd i wouldn't recommend tho....

or you can cheat and get the lowered look by installing bigger wheels. say 18" or 20". something that will fill the wheelwells.

my 0.02:D

Taking on and off, sounds like alot of work, is it?
well, since you only have to do it once a year, it's not bad...besides, it is something you can do when you're bored, something to keep you busy, or something to get out of the house for a bit...hehehe

I did a 2/2. You will be just as good as you were before the drop. Drive very carefully though. I live in Wi. Winters suck ass. Even a 2/3 would be good for you.
