    I'm having a hard enough trouble making that decision myself. So I'm no damn help.

    Depends on where u live, if u live in the country raise it if u live in the city drop it, unless you offroad..
    and dont you like the classic look better, i think the new 07s look like transformers.

    i live in the city, but the thing is the 8' box like if i had the shorty box, no doubt about it, drop it, but then also usaully the trucks that get dropped are more mid size trucks like the sonomas and s10s etc. Who has dropped there truck and if so how much and how big of a wheel/tire size can u put? i might just drop it like 1.5 - 2" and put some nice 20s on it.

    I would agree, I would lift it. I had a long box that I sold to my buddy and he dropped it to the ground. He wasn't pleased with the way it looked, it was to long. He put a cap on the back and it looked a little better but still was kind of awkward looking. Lifting it would look better.
