Default Any lowered 4x4's?

Looking at making my 04 4x4 a little lower. I know Groundforce makes a 2/4 drop kit for a 4x4. Anyone here running it or any drop really on there 4x4?
Really want to get rid of that space between my wheels and wheel wells.

There are a few around the boards running the Ground Force drop kit on 4x4's they look pretty good too!

Thanks

No issues with the kit whatsoever, just remember to replace your shocks with a quality shock when you do the swap, and be sure they are sized appropriately for the rear drop. A 4" drop will kill a regular length shock quickly as they can repeatedly top-out if you're not careful. The shop that did my install added a set of Monroe gas-filled which weren't bad, but my new truck is getting QA1s, but not everyone wants to drop that kind of money on shocks.
