Here's some constructive criticism: it's ugly as Hell and the guy who came up with that design is a no-talent hack. I really mean that.

An example of cab-forward design done PROPERLY:

Funny conversation here. The real reason ProLine has gone this route isn't performance, it's that J-Concepts has been eating their lunch for the last couple years and Shift bodies (the last effort) aren't popular. Performance? C'mon...

Wait. You mean to tell me that Pro-Line decided to try to salvage their poorly-selling, leave-me-indifferent SHIFT body shell line by coming up with an even more hideous design? That's akin to trying to put out a fire with a pail of gasoline, is it not?

No wonder Scott jumped ship...

if the these bodies create more downforce, then by the same token wouldnt you loose straight line speed? or do they defy the laws of physics?

Now this one wins the all time, "BUTT FUGLY AWARD".
If the designer of that body offered to give me one of
those, I'd have to suggest that he should take it home
and use it as his own personal "COLON CRAWLER".
