    So everybody talks about lifting their truck but im thinking about dropping mine down. I was thinking about dropping the back about an inch to kinda level it off. If i had a 4x4 i would be going up but since i have a prerunner and never go offroad i think dropping it some would look better.

    Any opinions on what i should do lemme know what you think.......

    I will probably drop it about 1/2 inch to 3/4 inch just to get better handling on the streets. I mean, it may change and I may take the 2x4 on some dry trails and such but it will mainly be a street truck.

    Do it! I wanna see how it'll look!

    If you are going to drop it, get a lower kit and do it right. I think it would look great dropped.

    if you have a prerunner then don't even bother...standard 2wd truck ok...but prerunner basically usees the 4x4 frame and suspension, minus the front drivetrain...you would be better off selling it and getting a regular 2wd cause you would basically have to get a reg 2wd chassis and trransplant everything over to that to be able to get any kind of decent drop...and no, dropping a truck is not like cutting it's nuts off, it just makes those nuts useful through corners instead of mud :D
