Question 3/5 or 4/6 Lowered???

So I've only recently been able to start looking back into mods on the Dak, due to some work issues, but I've begun looking at suspension mods, since my audio install has been put on hold...

Does anyone have pictures of a 3/5 or 4/6 on their Dak? I'm not looking at bagging this truck. If I wasn't doing an engine swap in it, to something larger, I would consider it.

I think a 3/5 is plenty, but I would also like to see what are the best way to lower the 03 Dak. and yes I've looked a DJM.

Also, I can't remember if this is right or not but I thought that we had a Stylintruck rep on here at one time, I could be wrong though

I love your truck because it's stock appearing and super clean. Just read through your bag progress threads.

hynge- love the ride bro, but i don't know if I want to go that low or not. I thought about just doing a djm kit 3/5.

Has anyone else done lowering without bagging?

Mind you all this is going on a truck that's going to have a 392 crate motor dropped in it.
