You could do a 2/4 for pretty cheap. Get some 2" lowering springs up front (approx $150-200) and a 4" block out back. It isn't going to ride too smooth. If you don't care about ride, just cut off a coil in the front to save you the money. Just don't cut off too many coils.

You shouldn't have to, but you might want to. The shocks might bottom out when you hit a dip at speed. You will also have to trim down the bumpstops.

your gonna want to remove the leaf springs Bubba. The leaf springs are mainly there to keep the axel from moving side to side or whatnot. You can however reduce the amount of leafs you have to about maybe 2or maybe one but that's probably pushing it too much.
