I'd like to see a setup that levels out the rear without a major compromise in ride quality. 2" or so? Here's a pic from Ford:

I like the low & mean profile, makes it look faster when the wheel well gap is eliminated.

So do I as I'm not likely to do any serious off roading with mine. The low look was a digitally produced pic I saw online. Likely 22" wheels if not 24". That's a bit too extreme for a pickup IMHO.

What company should we be looking to for a body kit?

@Eibach I’d like to put in a deposit for this.
Actually I’m. In on that as well.
A 2” front and rear drop would be nice to keep the rake for aerodynamics but a 2/4 would look better. Removing the floating feel is definitely needed.
A “rake” with a ‘ass up’ attitude doesn’t benefit aerodynamics as it presents more surface area to oncoming air. A leveling kit would that drops the rear end would.

Would love to see a good lowering kit that doesn't kill ride quality and still supports the stock tire size. A little less lean in the turns would be nice too.
Many years ago when I fiddled more with my vehicles, I swapped out the stock rubber swaybar bushings with polyurethane bushings. Made a big difference. One might argue, if you are going to the effort to swap the bushings, why not get a bigger sway bar.
