lowering it is very simple. Decide on what drop you want first. For example if you decide on a 3/4" drop then all you have to do in the rear is undo your leafsprings and put in a 4" lowering block, which you can order from stylin concepts or others. The front, all you have to do is crank down your torsion bars and when your done just get the frontend aligned. As far as baggin it is concerned, it would definitly be cool but a lot of fabricating and hard work involved.

finding bags to fit it shouldn't be hard to do bro, for the front, 2500 lb. bags fit just fine, just be sure to eyebrow the spring pocket so ur bags don't ruband isuzu's get really good lift in the front if u set it up right....as for the back, the best way to go is 2600lb. bags but u can get by with 2500 lb. bags without a problem as long as u don't go over the axle with them cause u won't get very good lift and it won't ride the greatest,and if u know how to fabricate then u can just build ur rear suspension however u want, exe:2-link, 4-link, etc.if u decide to bag it, feel free to ask me any questions.....u may not wanna try and bag it if ur not sure how to though cause that may not be safe...lol

i always say bag it. but if you are not sure how to do it, you should get someone to do it for you. i have a 91 pick up that i am bagging. i have a show truck so i am building this truck just to drag. when you bag the front of it you will prob have the same prob i did with the oil pan dragging the ground. to fix that and get the frame all the way down i z cut the front 2" and now i have the clearance i need you will also need a fuel cell, i am buiulding my own. or you can just relocate the tank to the bed. its not pretty but it works. i recommend a 4 link on a mini truck.

lowering trucks doesn't make since. You take a perfectly good vehicle meant for hauling, mudding, and all purpose rugged driving, and ruin the best attributes by lowering it. If anything, go the other way with it.

87puprider, You should take a look at [url=http://IsuzuPup.com]IsuzuPup.com[/ur]. There's a ton of information on older Pups.

Not defending either lowered or lifted Pup owners, but to each there own. Wouldn't you agree?
