low pinion vs. high pinion Dana 30

Anyone know the difference in ground clearance between the low pinion Dana 30 and the high pinion Dana 30, assuming everything else equal?

I have a 2001 XJ with lp D30, and although I love the term "Dana turdie", I don't love the fact that I have a lp D30 (turdie), unless it's no big deal. Input? Thanks.

Lee

The low pinion D30 gears are weaker than the D30hp(high pinion). Another disadvantage of the LP is greater driveline angles it creates on lifted vehicles.
Overall ground clearance is about the same.
