Thanks I appreciate it! Still a lot of work to do, but once the tires are on it'll finally start to look lifted. I only got 2.5" in the front and Im already dreading the rub! haha. Got some spacers already and hopefully get the cab mount chop done. Then gotta get rid of some plastic!

Did you have any alignment problems with the 5100s set at 2.5?

I didn't lift it yet. My original plan was to go with 5100s at 1.75" or 2.5" and AAL with stock coils. Before I do it though I'm trying to figure out what height will keep me in spec without UCAs. Some guys stay in spec without new UCAs and some don't. I guess it has nothing to do with year, more where the truck rolled off the line in Toyota's huge tolerance range. I heard the Offroad coils can make for a rough ride. If it's not too much more money maybe I'll throw eibachs on.

I hated the ride with my stock coils at 2.5". Extremely stiff, rough around turns. Night and day compared to my OME's. I have OME 885x's and with the 5100's at 0" I still get 2.5" in the front. I would highly recommend getting new coils with the 5100's, but if you dont you could get away with 1.75" and not need uca's.

Good to know! Is there a coil combo that will get me 2 inches of lift (stock UCAs) to keep me w/in spec?

Both! Why would you make us read what you did but not show pictures at the time and then have to take time to answer where the pics are then still go back and post them?
