I had a really hard time deciding what drop and tire size to run, so hopefully this will help someone out there. This is a DJM 4/5 kit from RicksRangerz, but I swapped out the 2" drop coil for a 3" drop coil, for 5/5 total. I'll be adding a 1" block out back for the extra inch down I think. But so far, I'm very happy with the results. 215/45/18 tires.

What wheel size / back spacing and tire size are you running? I just ordered front 18x9 and rear 18x10 FR500's from AmericanMuscle.com and I'm going to require at least a 1" spacer up front and w/ my Explorer 8.8, the 18x10's barely stick out of my flare side bed. I haven't ordered tires yet. I would like to get something about 26" tall and as wide as possible in the rear without extending the tire too much outside the body
