Default 4th Gen 4X4 lowering?

Has anyone lowered a 4th gen 4X4? What would the pros/cons be? And if so can you post up some pics. I have the Mopar body kit, and it doesn't look like any of the step bars/running boards are compatible with the kit.

Yes. Rides a bit stiffer-was a bit much for me. I ended up taking it back off and will be selling it when I get around to it.

If I recall the SEMA Ram from '09 I think had the groundforce 2/3 lowering kit and a body kit on it.

No issues at all. Barely stiffer than stock, handles better and used 4x4 with no issues. Groundforce did their homework.
