    I am trying to decide between the 2. I dont want this thing scraping speed bumps. So I don't want to go lower. I am going with the djw setup.

    Pretty sure you won't have anything to fear like that until you go below 4/6. IMO, get the 3/5 and yeet your stock rear bump stocks. You'll have the same space between axle and frame with that as you would between axle and bump stops with just a rear drop shackle; and that's 4"

    3/5 is kinda the silver class drop. You don't NEED to do extra stuff like C-notching or buy higher-end extra-low drop shocks and stuff, but you could. If you want a relatively no fuss drop, get the 2/4 using spindles on the front and shock extenders on the rear. Lets you keep stock shocks. Just be sure to trim or remove your rear axle bump-stops either way.

    I did 2/3 on my 05 4wd. It turned out to be pretty level. 2" McGaughy's spindles (knuckles) and 3" leaf springs. I had shackles on the rear but when I decided to lower the front I threw the stock shackles back on. Truck is on a slight decline in my driveway so it looks a little lower in the rear than it is.
