93 C1500 Short Box

Just kind of fell into this truck. Originally from Texas and is in great shape for now residing in the midwest. It's to cowboy for me with the wheels/tires. I want to lower it 5/6, cowl hood, debadge, dechrome, roll pan, new front bumper, grill, remove blue crappy tint and spray an implement paint or single stage. I like the battleship grey color. Trying to keep this a budget build. Looking for some experienced input on most cost effective way to lower it, wheel size etc etc. Once the 4.3 fails I will swap with a 5.3. Thank you for any responses.

the 5.3 swaps in these trucks are pretty easy ,darn near bolt in, swaping the motor mount is the hard part. I am doing a 6.0 4l80e right now

Scored these this week. I would love the 5/6 drop but it appears a 2/4 would be best suited for this truck's main use.

Djm components, 5/6. Belltech street performance shocks, 15x7 in the front and 15x8 in the rear. Tires are 215/65/15 fronts and 295/50/ in the rear! Nice score on the wheels btw! Was actually looking for a set of those but a guy down the road had the American racing wheels on my truck for 100 dollars for the set with no tires.
