Pics lowered on factory 17's?
 
does anyone have a picture of their truck lowered on the factory 17's with the factory tires?

I've noticed that my truck sits a bit lower than the trucks with the 20's simply because of rim and tire size so after I lower it I was wondering how much lower it would sit than lowered guys with 20's

just looking for a picture to get an idea.

there were 2 OEM 17" tire sizes, one is the same as the 20" set up, around 31.5" tall, the other is about 30" tall. The height difference of that 1.5" total height translates to .75" from axle to the ground. So depending on tire size you have (which could be neither of the two OEM sizes) you may be 3/4" lower.

yea I'll probably just ride bumpy for a while but I'm sure I'll eventually have to cut the frame... probably just because Ill want to go lower haha
