Think of it this way. You can only go lower until you hit the ground. You can lift till you hit a bridge. lol I Would lift and I told you what I would do for a lift kit in your other thread.

lowered you live where you can get away with it..

4/5 drop easy. some nice wheels and tires. remove the door bumpers its just tapped on, tint windows, remove the "rock guards" on the fenders, bed cover, STX grille, color match headlights or black, add fog light lower valance..

and done..

2WD lower -- 4WD lift it.

If it's your DD I think I'd be conservative and go with a 2"/3" drop.
Then go with 18" wheels and bigger tires to get the illusion of being lower. (255/55 X 18)
With that combo you'll have some mild inner fender rubbing on bad roads.
A static 4"/5" drop on a DD can be a PITA with speed bumps and sharp driveways.
I've had both and speak from experience.
If you can live with it, then go for it and do the 4"/5" drop.

Do you offroad now?
Want the offroad look?
Want the sporty truck look?
Does your truck ever leave pavement?
Do you care about mpg?
Do you like your warranty? lol
