    Yeah I’ve got 4.5” leaf springs for the rear so whatever that sets the rear as will be the new ride height.

    Honestly, I would leave it a bit taller just making those tires fit if you go lower will be a massive issue. You would have to loose a TON of sheet metal.

    Even an inch lower you should have a pretty good amount of up travel at ride height. Still bet you are gonna need to loose more metal. haha I dig the tire choice BFG's are awesome.

    Got some cheap 4.5” rough country. Saving where I can since it’ll be 4 linked next year. Might build a buggy of some sort next year.
