Come on wilson, everyone should be familiar with the "shrinkage episode". Seinfeld did a service to men everywhere by having a show that actually explained the eccentricities of the male member. Before that alot of women didnt know it could shrink. Long live Seinfeld!!!

If you have just the TSB in the back and you put the 5100's on 2.5" will the front be higher than the rear?

2.5 in the front DOES make the front look a lil higher if you have a DC, even with the rear TSB. Most guys over on TW with DC's set the front to 1.75 with the rear TSB for a level look. Most suggest you put a 1" block in the rear with the TSB if you are setting your fronts to 2.5 on the double cab for a level look..that will keep the rear just a ever so slightly higher but will look the best in my opinion...

Mine would definitely be. Get the TSB (I think you have it already) and measure from the center of the rim to the wheel well. That will tell you what the front should be.

Thank you! So far they're great. I did a LOT of research before I bought. If you want a good price (not sure if you ordered yet) I can show you where to go. Got a set of 4 with free shipping for $668.

Thanks for the link.I read the Tirerack review and it was great.I had narrowed it down to the Goodyear Wrangler Silent Armour and the LTX.I finally decided to go ahead and get the Michelin's.I got nowhere the deal you did but managed to find a retailer locally that gave me a decent discount.I also decided to move into a 265/70/17 from my stock 265/65/17.Essentially I added 1" overall and I think it's going to look good.I'm at work right now and can't wait to pick 'er up at 6:00.
