I think you'll be fine with a 2" drop.. You may even be able to squeak by with 2.25", but shouldn't have to worry about rubbing until you get to the 2.5"/2.75" range.

Here's what you're looking at (roughly). My lude is running a 205/40/17...aka off roading status, haha. The red lude (dk4ever) is also on 17s w/ a 2" drop--He looks to be running a 45series, but I'm not sure..

Depends on how wide your tire is bro! The best way to tell is drop it and turn your tire to see! Thats what I say! LOL

But more than likely you will drop it 2'in. and you should still be left with an inch or so of clearence on your wheel well,
