Default 4'' drop with Total Load Control?

Does anyone have a 4" rear drop with the TLC kit? I was just wondering how it works with a lowered truck. Any pics would also be appreciated.

Most guys here run the Durango Air Lift 1000 bags w/ a 4" drop. I don't think the TLC kit would work w/ a drop.

What RAM EM said ^^ The TLC bags are meant to work at stock height only.

I read this, "As long as there is 4 1/2"-5" between the bottom of the bump stop holder and the top of the horizontal plate on the axle, TLC should fit and work." from TLC John on here.

But I can't seem to find any photos or reviews of people running them with a lowered Ram.

You won't have 5" of clearance in that area w/ a 4" drop. I'm dropped close to 5" in the rear, and I only have about 2-2 1/2" of clearance there at best.
That being said, you probably could "make it fit" with a little fab/mod work, it's just not gonna be plug n' play.

Gotcha. Thanks for your help. This answered my questions. I'm looking for a higher volume bag than the in coil bag. If the TLC isn't going to be plug and play with a drop I think I'm better off just buying bags and having a mini truck shop in the area fab something up for me.
