    Can anyone tell me how much of a drop I will get by swapping the stock 5 lug rear leafs for 6 lug? I understand that the 5 lugs are under axle and the 6 lug are ovr axle, so whats the total drop ill get with that....and can I do that with the djm kit?:confused::confused:

    What tire size you running just jdm alone won't make you tuck I'm running it's coils and I'm about to tuck up front with smaller that stock height tires and flush in the rear

    The 4x4 leafs seems to vary in drop dorm what I witnessed when I had em I was about 1.75" drop with the leaf others have 1" or 1.5"

    x2. depends on the weight of the truck (access vs. reg)

    but it will be around 1.5" to 1.75"

    and these trucks, you need to go very low to tuck. and the frames hang quite low, so you'll be scrapin'

    true dat but to get a, imo, NICE low, your going to have to cut (cut off that bump stop hump and plate, along with low pro bump stops and notch the rear or your going to hit the frame). no ways around that. I'm running 225/50/18 in the back (equal to 235/35/20) and at full drop to my low pro bumps I still have wheel gap. Up front I have 225/40/18, still wheel gap BUT there's maybe just a lil more I can go (at most maybe an inch) before I have to cut off that bump stop hump to start considering tucking. Keep in mind that your wheel well is around 22" in diameter.

    Oh yeah definitly I already ordered the djm kit that comes with the notch kit for the rear....so that will be 4 inches in the back and im getting 4x4 leafs which will be supposedly another inch to 1.5 and then spindle spacrs for the front....so ill be sitting at 4/5 drop maybe a little more then eventually get coilovers....but im hoping if I put a littke meat on my tires it will go up in he fender a little

    Have a look in your driverside fender, there will be two tabs sticking out. Cut them off, you dont need them.
