Depends on what truck? If your using a JEEP J10 frame, it already hes about a 10" kick in it if you add a c-chanel to that, you can't get much lower.

if you EVER plan on racing it (or selling it for that matter, class legal trucks are easier to sell) then leave the frame rails. If it's going to be a fun car or you're just going to race every once in a while with small organizations, you could probably get away with the rear tubular
