His is a 3rd gen. There are currently no kits or even parts out there for lower than a 2/4 with the 4th gen trucks, let alone 4WDs. The 4-link is actually the least of your worries since the rear is dead simple to get lowered. Axle flip, a block, springs, and new shocks and you're closer to mother earth, and if you go with airbags over springs it's adjustable. The issue is the front end. You can get 2" with springs, but unless there's someone making drop spindles that I'm not aware of you will be hard pressed to get it lower. You'll also have issues with the front half-shafts as the greater deflection angle will absolutely destroy any CV joint unless you're running high angle joints on a custom shaft and then you're looking at major money to make it all work. The cost for me to get another 2-3 inches on my 3rd gen is about $3K for my 4wd.
