Last night I looked at a gas dually. 350 Chevy lightly built. Sounded great and ran/rode good. Only thing is, it's a low rider. Rear frame notched and all. Everything looks right and was braced heavily. Will it tow a trailer without issue?

Was it on bags in the rear or leaves?

Leaves. Rear end was HUGE and leaf packs were beefy.

As long as the springs still look like they can handle some weight, i don't see an issue with it.

The springs look stock to me. The whole rear end does. Everything just sits up into the frame. It's set up something like this but with the stock leaves :

If its braced well, and you can make the hitch height work for you, then it should be fine i would think.

is the green one it?
i see no hitch-- nothin a few hours with a welder and some scrap iron won't fix.
is the bed cut out like the first one?
sheet metal and a welder once more.

looks good---straight drive or auto?
i'd loose them green tail light covers tho--people behind need to know
when you turn-stop etc.

make a show truck into a tow truck--right on.

That's it. Bed is cut. Roll pan has a knock-out behind the license plate for the hitch receiver. It has Toyota Supra tail lights in the rear roll pan. Automatic with a hot cam. It sounds awesome.

Haven't sold the Burb. Not trying very hard. Not settled on that dually really. I just stumbled upon it at a good price.

Looks like it's of Spanish descent.LOL but seriously how was the front lowered.Better ? how does it ride.Honestly that's about what my plans are for my dually if i can ever get started on it.76 dropped with airbags all around,and thinking 22.5 big truck wheels,probably go with 19.5's though.
