Default 4/5 DJM Lowering Wheel Combo

Good Morning all. This is my first post so be gentle. I'm going to get the DJM 4/5 lowering kit for my 99 extended cab and i have 235/75/R15 all the way around that I would very much like to keep to achieve the look I'm going for. My question is has anyone had any problems with rubbing or fitment with this setup. any and all advise will help pics are a plus. Thank you

I think that will be way too tall. I just completed a similar drop on my Ranger with 235/60R15 tires and it's tight... different generation but that's a big tire

Looks good. Those more square body's are really cool. Yeah the 99 has more of a rounded fender well so not sure if that will affect the position of the top of the tire in relation to the fender well. My math has the top of the tire .5 and inch from the fender well. thanks for the input much appreciated.

Anyone have any pics of a 235/75-R15 with a 2-3 drop?

I have a similar setup. 235/50r18s in front and 255/45r18s in the rear. Bigger wheels but essentially same total diameter. I have a 3/5 drop though so just imagine a little higher.

Either way you go, DO NOT get 3” lowering springs. Spend the money and do the spindles. Trust me.

Yes, drop spindles keep the stock geometry so you wont have camber problems,vs springs would max up your Upper ball joint like mine. The rear is simple with a flip kit, but will prob need a c notch depending how much low you go.
