To lower or not to lower
I have a 1998 ram 3500 drw quad i was thinking of lowering it but worried about the trans crossmember and the future of towing a gooseneck enclosed trailer. I thought i saw a crossmember kit awhile back but can't seem to find it now, found a rear kit and front coils but haven't done any thing yet theres a guy up the road with a ford f350 drw thats slammed and he tows a 40+ enclosed gooseneck trailer occasionally. Just looking for opinions.:4-dontknow:

I know there are a bunch of 3500s that are slammed and used as toy haulers, so i say go for it, I love seeing dropped dualies. I havn't seen any crossmember kits, but I was never looking for them myself.

I agree duallies that are lowered look really cool! Just get some airride under there to add some strength while towing

my opinion is not to lower it. I'm just not that big of a fan of lowerd trucks, but to each their own.

my opinion on the matter isas follows:
2WD = lower
4WD = Jack it up
Dually = a work horse so leave the ride alone...lowering will make it non functional and raising it makes it harder to load stuff in the back, and duallys are no good for mudding so there no point
