When I first got my truck I wanted to lift it and put some 33s on it. Now, I'm starting to like the street look, as in lowered with 20s. I want a lifted truck, but if I want one I would want it 4x4. Since I have a 4x2 I don't know what to do.

LIFT it wik 20's!

I admire some of the well done street trucks, but it's just not the look for me. Do what you think looks good. There's tons of pics around here and there of both ways. And assuming that you don't go REALLY crazy, you can always go the other direction (keep your stock parts!)

I cut it right down the middle, I didn't lift (except a t-bar crank) and put 32" tires on 17" wheels. I've got a little something for everybody.

Probably because Christian's truck is also a 2x4.

You can have a lifted 2wheel drive and have fun too. a small lift with 33's and a locker in the rear will let you have lots of fun. I would reccomend swaping out the rear for an 8.8 if you truck does not have one already. Even better if you find one with Rear disc brakes from an explorer. Its fairly cheap to do and you'll enjoy it for years! 4.10 gears would be optimal with this set up, however 4.56 will liven up that 3.0 off the line.

I would strongly advise against cranking up the torsion bars on anyone with 4 wheel drive.
