Had no idea. I am seeing a lot of 2 door standard cab short bed chevys lowered out here on so cal. Love the look, sporty. If i was a young single guy, I'd have one.Lowered is a regional thing.
In the Southeast... The NASCAR Truck series is enormously popular and lowered 2WD is very common.
Regular cabs have always been hot...basically a sports car with a bed with some engine mods and a lowering kit.Had no idea. I am seeing a lot of 2 door standard cab short bed chevys lowered out here on so cal. Love the look, sporty. If i was a young single guy, I'd have one.
The main reason is tire stagger. We have been building narrow front, wide rear wheels for the trucks we lower, but the tire sizes have to stay very close to the same diameter or the ECU and ABS get very upset. When I was at a facility with an in house Chevrolet Race Shop engineer, we had the capability of programming the stagger in, but that was in the days of removable EPROM's. i don't think there is a way to do it now without a factory connection.Bad ass. Don't see too many lowered trucks anymore. Seems everyone now lifts them.
Truth.Lowered vehicle look cool, but limit themselves in many drive ways and business entrances and sharp rises at ramps that cause them to drag bottom.
Cool often comes at a cost.
