I think that's a thing of beauty... if I had an extra 40 or 50 grand for no other purpose, I'd do something like that to my F350.

I kinda like that truck, Not to sure about the wheels though, especially for the fact that I don't care for the rig style front wheels with chrome plated lug nuts that stick out, i know they come that way, but that doesn't mean I have to like it, lol...

granted it is Forza, but my Raptor on there has a full shelby gt500 engine swap and is lowered about 2 inches with a nice set of MT's, that thing is beautiful. stomps on all cars all the way up through the S class

This truck is diet.

No, really, one of the wheels is punched in! if it was regular, they'd both be convex. :D

It is likely a result of the control arm angle. As the angle increases due to the need for tire clearance, the side view swing arm length as measured from the plane of the center of the wheel base is shortened. Put more simply, suspensions travel in an arc and when you are a complete assclown, shit like this is the result.

As for towing with the Z, good for that guy. He is obviously enjoying the gearhead life and I think it is a sad commentary that people here are giving him crap about it.
