I have a 1992 Toyota Pickup 4x4
, I was wondering if it was possible to drop it with airbags, to about an inch
. I don't know if it is possible also because when i look under it, it seems that some stuff might get in the way
.. I am not sure, anything you have to say will help, I live in Northern Virginia, and was wondering about prices and places I can go to do this... Thanks!

Get a 2WD.

It wouldn't work anyhow, you could drop the rear but the front would take some serious fabrication, and your front axle would probably be useless, if not completely removed.

they DO have axles, drive axles with CV's... not a straight axle

IFS has an axle on a 4WD. If it was a straight axle you probably could lower it (why you would, I don't know), but the CV joints in the IFS axle would be put at an angle they couldn't handle and would break.

Yeah dude, it is possible. I've seen Samurais dropped as well. Disgraceful indeed, but still possible. I think I tried to throw something at the last lowered Samurai I saw.

Don't mond these guys, we have had this question before. It would take some serious fabrication in the front to get the angles for the driveshafts and everything to jive, especially on airbags. I would first try to sell it cause you will get a lot of people cause its 4 wheel drive and buy "Duts" already bagged already 4 linked truck up. Believe me that truck is real nice! here is a pic!

your best bet would be to sell it and buy a regular 2wd. If you must keep this truck and lower it, you could buy a 2wd rolling chassis from a junkyard which I've priced around $1000 and swap it out. You could maybe remove the whole front clip and replace it with a 2wd front clip and do a similar thing in the rear.
