Best Slammed Trucks

Shining the spotlight on hot rigs that are slammed on the ground.

Apr 5, 2021
Spring has sprung. After the long winter of cold temperatures, snow, rain, and other inclement weather, the sun is finally shining throughout the U.S. And, because it's nice outside, tricked-out trucks that understandably aren't seen in extreme conditions are now coming out of their owner-imposed hibernation in the garage.
"Slammed" pickups lead the pack in the hodgepodge of tricked-out rigs that are back on the street in 2021. And when we say "slammed," we mean the truck is lowered (permanently or by activating an air or hydraulic suspension system) to a point where a human foot won't fit in the space between the rocker panel and the ground.
Dropped as low as they can go, with tires tucked deep into the fenders and the belly able to create sparks when it scrapes across the earth, is one of the most popular positions (the cool kids call it "stance") to see slammed trucks posed in—especially a longbed, crew-cab dually.
Thanks to the former Truckin and Mini Trucks magazines, hundreds (more like thousands) of slammed rigs are stored in our virtual coffers. To celebrate the low-profile pickups, we've assembled this gallery of photos and links to feature stories highlighting some of the slammed stunners in our history.
