    Hi Yoties,

    I have a 75 Toyota Hilux Long bed that I am wanting to modify but can't decide if I want to go pre runner or lowered.

    Here is what the truck looks like (attached file)

    Here's some of my inspirations:

    Lowered

    Pre runner (except, I would want it to sit lower):

    I really think these sort of trucks look better lowered. They aren't very wide so lifting them makes them look awkward proportionally, whereas lowering them makes them look artificially wider and more aggressive.

    I almost got one instead of my Hilux, but it was an extra $1200 bucks and in kinda worse shape. They are unfortunately expensive haha
