Thinkin about dropin her and need some ideas.

Alright well my first intentions were to lift it and go with 33s but its 2wd and that would be useless. SO therefore i think im gonna drop her. My uncle can get me a kit for 225 thats 3inch lowering springs on the front, a 5 inch flip kit in the rear and all 4 shocks. So it would drop it 3 inch in the front and 5 on the back. And i already have a roll pan to replace my bumper. Then i wanna know how to make it handle better? ive heard sway bar kits but i have no idea. Front kits or rear kits or what? Also i plan on putting headers and a dual flow master 10 series exhaust lighting style on it, true duals. Then i wanna put a tonneau cover on it. Also i wanna plan on putting either 18s or 20s on it. What rims and size would you reccomend and what tires? And then need new seats for it, preferable buckets. Also i want white face gages. So if you all have any parts or words of help please let me no.

heres some pics of what the bed looks like now that i finished the body work on the rust holes. It will be painted all the same color soon to.

Do not go where the path may lead... Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail

flip the shackles in the rear not hard then cut a coil off the springs in the front thats what I did and it looks great reduced body roll improved handling and barely affected the ride not even a noticeable difference plus it was free (:
