Default Official Static Drop Thread

Let's post examples of lowered trucks so people who don't know what they need to lower their truck can find out. Got the idea from an RPS thread.

Post your model year, amount of drop, what you used to lower it (beams, a arms, springs, flip kit, etc), and what size wheels and tires you have on your truck.

Just post a couple pictures from different angles and let's try to keep the chatter down.

I'll start.

93 5.0 swap
0/2 drop
Shackle flip only
17x8 Bullitts with 235/55R17 Pirellis

My 99 started with the djm 4/5 kit. Somewhere around 5-6/7 in this pic. Currently about 7/7 and finishing up a 5.0 swap.
