I like option #1. Trucks are made for tough stuff., not pretty boy stuff.

Ah yes they are, but it isn't a truck it is an SUV. LOL

I vote for a lower V8 powered cruiser!

If I lower it, it will be 2-3 inches on 17-18 inch rims. No huge rims, no crazy lowering, just something fast/clean/fun

Change of plans...

Going to crank the torsion bars, add a leaf, new shocks and run the 31's and edge rims from my truck that are sitting in the back.
