The front billies just level out the truck. The rear needs aal or something else like a block. But from what I understand, you also need to change the rear shocks to allow the rear lift. I'm about to lift my truck and have been researching options for the last three months

depends on what lift height you want to go to with the 5100? if you stick with .85" setting you will be fine but anything above that you might want to either consider and aal in the rear or go to toyota and get the rear tsb aal. that will give you what 1-1.5" rear lift then you can set the front billys at the second notch and be happy with that also.

are you getting the billys for their lift, ride, bigger tires?

Did you have any issues with alignment doing 2.5? What about the rear, any vibes, carriage bearing issues? I hear a lot of people stating after long term with 2.5 they have issues.

haha my mom, dad, GF and anyone else complains about getting into my truck even with the sliders. The sliders are closer to the body making it harder to use them as a side step. But i tell them, if you want to drive we can take your car....they deal with it lol

I been thinking about the billys for the lift. Seem like it will be one of the easier ways to lift it.

Those bars are made by nfab. They are polished aluminum and they say they will never rust. I have not updated my pic in a while, they are now line-x in black. They were just way to slippery before. The line-x added a nice traction to them and they look better in black now
