Check out some 3" blocks, and 2" spindles. If you want lower than that, you can get some shackles for the rear and some coil springs for up front. combine that, and you should have somewhere around a 4/5 drop.

No blocks, they'll lift the truck.

In the rear, either lowering shackles/hangers or a flip kit with the notch. Or both.

A flip will drop it 6" and you'll have to notch the frame.

Flips will drop it that much? Daamn...easy loweing for the rear if you're slamming it heh.
Didn't realise it dropped it that much; guess that's my thing to learn today!
