Well because it has a body kit on the front you should probably drop it. I personally would leave it at stock hight and throw some rims on it and swap out the rear tail with the sport tails.

If you a truck to lift trade it in for a xlt or evena xl and get rid of that mazda bed. But if your keeping it then drop it.

exact words of my cousin!

P.S. I love that STX, i might have to get the rest of the kit and drop her now

P.P.S not sure if I want the 4/5 or the 2/3 because i still need to get around PA (blah pot holes ) and also need to work out of it a little being that im going to school its not going to be a complete work truck, just one that gets me around in style for now, then the next truck will be a different story, but not sure if the 4/5 is too much for around here
