i would have to agree. iv rolled one before and its not that much fun. get a small car if you wanna go fast. but for horse power just put easy stuff on your engine. intake ignition little stuff like that will make it faster and have great pulling power

true. i just want to lower it basically i doont go that fast "around turns". i just think it will look nice with my 22in rims tucked in the fender wells and get a paint job i have very low milage im going to be driving it for awhile. people told me about flippng the leif springs of something

i'd say for a cheep way to drop her, buy front coils (usually 1-2 in shorter than stock coils...or u can get a set of stock and clip em down.) then flip the rear end axle over leafs. then for better grip on takeoff i'd cut a few leafs off the rear and clamp em toward the back of the truck

@ Dillon Robb All I can say is grow up Son.I said yes you can lower your truck but speeding on a truck is not a good thing.Not only lowered suspension is required.You have to upgrade brakes and other stuff too...

What kind of suspension does it have and is it 4 wheel drive? The front I-beam suspension that you probably have is going to give you a lot of trouble.

it has leif springs all around and yes 4Wd

So you are going to need new I-beam hinges and leaf springs. I'm not even sure that there will be lowering hinges for these trucks because there isn't much space between the beams and the crossmember as it is. If there aren't, you can try removing the bottom leaves from each pack and turning the ball joint bushings. The top ball joint at both front wheels has a cam bushing between it and the ibeam. It can be turned to adjust caster and camber. It may be enough to realign after lowering, but you should definitely ask an alignment shop. As a last ditch, you could take the whole thing to a custom shop and have them alter the ibeams, but this is really extreme. The best option is what I did after lifting mine on the ibeams. I dropped a grand for a dana 60 solid front. It skips the independant altogether, its stronger, and is a better, more responsive ride in my opinion. It bolts right up and might leave a little room for lowering. I'm not sure, tho, because I haven't seen mine with the dana at stock ride height. It probably wouldn't be very low tho. I would look into lowering hinges or aftermarket custom ibeams. A company that has those would probably sell springs to match. Hit me back if you have any questions.
