5100's and Duratrac's but I have questions

Guys,
Next week going to put some Duratracs on (265/75/16). Thought, while I have the cash, go ahead and put some 5100s on since you guys praise them so much. I have no lift but prob will in a year or two (3inch).
Couple questions:

1. 5100s come in Heavy Duty and Off Road. Which do I need ?
2. Do you guys usually order them off the net or get the tire guy to get them ?
3. Am I going to need to buy anything else besides the 5100's, Tires and Labor ?
4. If I set the 5100's to 1.75, am I going possibly damage anything ? I'm just after a little height.
5. What if I set them to .85, will the ride be noticably different than if I set them at 1.75 ?


Thanks guys !

get them from downsouthmotors.com they sell the ones you want. the ride at 1.75 will be a little stiffer than .85 but not much. I have them set at 2.5 and they ride great. with .85 nothing is needed in the rear 1.75 you'll need 1.5 AAL in the rear to be leve 2.5 youll need 2 AAL in the rear to be level. and save the money and have a good time with a friend and put them in yourself it's not that hard more time consuming but fun. You'll need to rent (borrow) a spring compressor from auto zone or somewhere equivilent.

as far as damage goes you will put wear on the UCA in time but not much worse than stock and if youre careful you shouldnt damage anything. there are many threads on here on How to's: I followed them and it was easy here are a few extra tips i learned while doing it. make sure you put a block of wood behind the front wheels when jacking the truck i dropped my truck off jack stands not doing that. also you'll need two people to do the fronts so you dont fuck up your rotor and cv joints Ect! Last remember to have fun and have a beer and admire your work after youre done.

good luck have fun!
