Ok guys, so let me start out by saying, I realize this topic has had the s%#@ beat out of it, but I feel like my particular case is slightly different so please don't beat me up to bad on this.
I recently bought a 2012 MGM 4x4 base taco. I currently have about half the money I need for wheels/tires/billys. Going with 265/75/16 duratracs and pro comp 7089s. I know I know, set the billy's at 1.75 and it will all look magestic. Well that was the original plan, but as time goes on and I look forward to getting wheels/tires/billys even more, I feel like I may be dissapointed, so then I considered spending the extra $80 for a 1-1.5" AAL. Keep in mind, this is a brand new truck, under 3500 miles, so I am wanting to keep everything kosher, and in great working order, as I plan on keeping the truck for a long, long time, and don't have any plans for major maintenance in the anywhere close to near future, and do not want to ruin my soon to be brand new $880ish tires. I realize that I am possibly being a little critical for the amount of money I want to spend, I would love to have coilovers and all the cool things, but I don't have the money to spend on it, and I am on a tight budget already.. My concerns with billys at 2.5 is will I be able to align it properly?, how will it ride at 2.5? Will them being set at 2.5 affect the shock life greatly? I dont want a "close enough" alignment, as I previously stated, its a brand new truck. I think I have answered my own question in my head ( go safe, go with 1.75 and keep the back factory, but what fun is that?) P.s., this will be mostly for appearance, don't do a lot of off-roading, but wouldn't hesitate to go down some dirt roads/muddy fields.
So basically, my question is what would you guys with experience suggest from these options.
A.) Billy's front 1.75 stock rear
B.) Billy's front 2.5, 1.5 AAL rear, factory rear shocks
C.) Billy's front 2.5, block for rear?
D.) I'm a dumb@$$ and haven't the slightest clue?! haha
Thanks in advance for any help
