Default 1995 ranger 3/4 drop ground clearance and wheel fitment

I am wanting to lower me newest ranger but I have a few questions that I couldn't go d answers to. With a 3/4 drop how low is the lowest point of the truck? I work in various rock quarys and this is going to be work/toy truck the terrain is mostly flat but sometimes I can be a little bumpy I just want to make sure it's not going to be super low.
I'd like to run some 15x8 steel wheels with fairly wide tires anyone have any info on what would be a good tire size or if it would rub bad? Minor trimming won't bother me either if need be.
Thanks in advance!

The 3/4 drop is fine as long as that's it . I'm guessing your going djm beams and flip out back . If so you should be good . I started with that kit . I've cut coils and did a expo rear swap . Which for the rear would be a better route to go I feel after ending up with one on mine . I did the flip but wanted disk and posi . So I swapped axles and leafs for expo stuff . You can stiffness back with the expo leafs ( 4vs3) . Mines set up at a 4.5 front and 6.5-7" drop now . Thats with flipping shackles out back and tweaking the mount brackets and cutting dead coil and a half . On 15's with low pros when I got tires lol it drops it down another 1.5 - 2 " that's going from 16"s .my wheel combos very from street to drift but have been know to roll the drift setup on the street from time to time , Which is a 205/50/15 . Street is a 235/60/16
