5100's vs skyjacker

Hey everyone,

I'm looking at lifiting my truck 2.5-3" and was going to go with 5100's in the front at 2.5" with an AAL, but then found this set up online.

http://cgi.ebay.ca/05-09-Toyota-Taco...item5ade17afde

has anyone had experience with this kit. How does it compare to the billy's?

the 5100s are adjustable while those skijakers are not, and i would be willing to bet the Bilsteins will ride MUCH better

That cost $100 more than front 5100's and an AAL as well.

I run Skyjacker all the way around. Platinum adjustable coil-overs in front. and Skyjacker 2.5" leaf's out back. Love it, rides like a Cadillac.

Edit: To add. I had that lift in the link also. It was great but I switched because I knew I would get the ARB w/ winch and wanted adjust-ability.

Monotube vs dual. 5100s are better ride and made much better. The 5100s will ride beter due to their monotube piston design. The finish is much more durable as well. My .02

I have the same question, do you just run stock coils on the skyjacker struts?
