    isn't the rocker very close to the frame on those trucks? I always thought just "z"ing the frame got you within 1" of the body being on the ground. If so why not just z it and then cut the bottom of the frame off and put some box tube in the frame to strengthen it.

    As for cost, it all depends on the vehicle, but if my idea works I'm sure you can find someone to do it for a reasonable price. Check out Streetsource.com, theres alot of companies there that specialize in getting a truck as close to the ground as possible.

    like i said before check out street source theres ALOT of people with your truck on there.

    As for the price, I'm sure you can find something better than that and still get quality. Theres bolt in air kits for more rare trucks for about 3 grand and that includes the air management. My biggest tip is to ask around in the local clubs, you might be able to find someone cheaper.

    whats up homie, this ?? has many answers..how low you wanna go, stock floor or traditional, i pretty much charge $1ooo. an inch finished work, my truck is bodydropped 7 "" and ive b/d it 3 different times with 3 different cabs, ha, but like someone already said good work is NOT cheap and cheap work is not good. depending on what your doin in way of susp. 3800 with a warranty from a reputable shop is a well paid price. i have bodied so many different whips, i also channel bodies over frames as well, but either way z/ing the frame is prolly a must.

    SO.CALi BAGGED PRICING IS 2200-2600 DEPENDING ON WHAT KIT YOU GET , YOU CAN PUT JUICE FOR 2,000 AND WITH ACCUMULATORS MAYBE LIKE 2,400.. YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO SEE HOW LOW IT LAYS AND THEN CUT THE BOTTOM OF THE FRAME OFF AND RE WELDED UP WITH BOX TUBING OR C CHANNEL...LIKE STATED ABOVE...

    x2 agreed you need the frame to lay out before you plan on bodydropping it.
