Lowering my truck and changing tire size

My truck currently has a 6"lift and runs LT315 70 R17's. i'm looking at lowering to a 2" lift with LT285 70 R17's. Does anyone have any pics with this type of setupthat they can share?

In my sig i have a 2.5" leveling kit with 35/12.5/17

I had 285/75/16's and hated the look of it. Didn't fill the wheel wells at all.
