Advice/recommendations needed

Hey all..ive been reading around here and got alot of useful information, but still a little confused...Basically I need it to be translated to me barney style...KISS (keep it simple stupid)

At the moment i don't do any offroading.. But in the future id like to do some trail runs and what not.. I haul my bike, camp crap, and sometimes construction things... I want a lift but nothing too major (prolly 3" or below).. reason for lift is to put some tires later on and hopefully some new rims (keeping it 17") and keep it clear of any rubbing...

-Was looking at the Blisten 5100 + rear TSB. Would the below be the correct product? If not, please provide correct one! With this combination, will I need anything else? Also 5100 would be set to 1.75 for the truck to be even (leveled) correct?

http://downsouthmotorsports.com/i-13...djustable.html

-Other combination/recommendations would be greatly appreciated as well..

Thank you guys soo much!!....(for making me spend )
-AnT

I just installed 5100's all around with the front set at 1.75. I also have the rear spring TSB. Did the installation myself with the help of a friend. Great setup. I run Hankook DynaPro ATm's in stock size (265-70R-16)

That's if you go 2.5" , the ucas give you back caster adjustment that is lost by lifting 2.5 or more. Caster won't wear the tires but will be annoying as shit driving on uneven surfaces on at frwy speed in windy places. It'll want to wander and follow grooves and feel all twitchy.

Just for an FYI:

I have the TSB and 5100s set at 1.75. I am about 3/8 to 1/2" of rake. If I put ANYTHING of substance in the bed I am nose high.

I am having some new rims and tires put on next week and I am seriously thinking about dropping the fronts to .85.

You always have the option of an AAL to give you a little more in the rear. I personally don't want to go any higher.

I am also detecting a vibe between 22-27 MPH. Is it a product of the 5100s at 1.75? I don't know because I had them put on very soon (my bad, in retrospect) after I took delivery on the truck.

When I get it back on Thursday I'll give you an update IF I drop them to .85.

I'll PM you with any useful info.

I don't haul a lot of stuff. But when I do, I absolutely DO NOT want to be nose high.

And at .85 if the vibe goes away it will kill two birds...
