So a guy at work just bought this gmc pickup. It's a nice looking truck, plenty of potential. I tell him, It would look sick as fawk if e would just lower it a bit more, get some nice wheels, and put a fleet side bed on it.

He tells me, Oh, i want some 15 inch cragars, and i want to lift it a couple inches.

/facepalm. I mean it's a two wheel drive, and its in too nice of shape to use as a work truck in my opinion, which is just my opinion. Anyway here are some pic of the truck i am taking about.

Now you know i would lower it an inch or two put a fleet side bed on it and put maybe some 20's or 22's on it and then have some fun with the system.

What I want to know, if you owned this truck what would you do to it?

Also, is this thing already lowered or is this how gmc does their leaf springs?

That looks like it already has a lowering shackle in the rear. That shackle doesn't look factory and the truck doesn't have a forward rake to it either.

Kind of what i thought, looks like a 4" drop. I couldn;t tell from the front if it had 2" or not. i don't know what they look like.

I personally wouldn't lower it anymore than it is now. I don't like lifted truck at all though. Unless you are really using it to offload. So many people around me have lifted trucks and mud tires to be a daily driver.... Drives me nuts, trucks that will never see dirt. With that truck 22s would look great at that height its at. 22s tint and system, and exhausts if it doesn't already have it.
