Now ill give you a step and you carry it out. As each step is done then we will progress!

Step 1: LOWERING - Static or bagged, its up to you, either way it involves the same principle.
How: Select the polygon select tool at the top left of the tool bar and select around the truck leaving out the underbody and wheels.
Right click and choose 'cut as new layer' or whatever it says.
Now using the arrows on your keyboard press down and woohoo down she goes!

Awesome dude, good first step for the beginners. Many people like to use the polygon lasso tool. However if you are like me and love the advanced stuff then try using the pen tool. Under the pentool button there are a number of pen tool additons, the pen tool creates vector points. You can bend, move, add and subtract vector points. Personally its the most powerful tool in photoshop. Everything you see here in MTNZ was created using the pentool including the site logo. Ill write a tutorial for it later.

Ok Afterburn whats next ?

Vehicle Colouring ?
Panel Creation/Shaving
Reflections and Lighting Effects

nice!
where you have added shadow to your rim/tyre try not to make it a gradial shadow, if this were more realistic youd notice it'd be more defined with how the gaurd shadows over the wheel.

Image
Notice the near shadow under the truck.. cleans it back up and if you think about it, the shadow is darker because less light can get under it. I did this using the pen tool to make the shape and then the blur tool to blur the edges.

Step 2: now to add rims!
Try carandmodel.com or somewhere and get some HI RES pics you can borrow the rims off....


You may as well do step 3 too
Step 3: Shaving!
Using either the clone tool or airbrush or copy/paste shave the parts you dont wanna see!
