A guy here at my work has a new expedition, and he plans on 
putting 20" wheels and low profile tires on it.  I'm sure they'll be 
chrome.  I think his is a 4wd.  Do they have 2wd expds?  I think 
they do.  Maybe it's a 2wd.

I asked him if he was going to lower it.  "Come on man, get a set of 
airbags for it (referring to adjustable suspension), or how about 
hydros?"  He said the tires would lower it a bit, and that beyond 
that he wasn't.

I'm sure even with 20"'s, the tires will leave huge wheelwell gap.
