Talking Finally got my 5100's installed

So finally after months of the 5100's laying in my hallway, i got them installed last week...i was going to do it myself, but i caved and drove it over to meineke...i installed the 5100's all around, fronts set at 2.5" with the rear AAL...cost me bout 230 for everything (supposively the guy spent like 4 hours doing my truck)...So far i'm liking the ride, it is a bit stiffer, but for a truck to me it makes it feel more solid...didn't get to drive it much though cause i do need an alignment...i forgot to measure the height before i installed, so i'm not really sure how much i did get in lift...i'm also feeling i need to start saving up for new rims/tires though, but for now the stock rims with the grabber at2's seem good enough ...here's some pics....





BEFORE:

AFTER (sorry the after is kinda hard to see well with the shadows)

now i do have one quick question...my TPMS light has never went on before, but right after i picked up my truck the light was on and hasn't gone off...i've checked the pressures, but still nothing...could the lift have anything to do with that?

for me i like it...again setting it at it's highest setting does give it a more stiff ride...but the truck seems more solid now...like i said i haven't really drove it too much, cause i do need to get the alignment done before i screw something up...i originally was going to go with a toytec 3" space lift with the AAL, but i'm glad i went with the 5100's....


on a different note, i've never went off roading with the truck, but should i decide to maybe start doing some light off roading in the future, will it hurt my new suspension?

No. I have the same setup in the front. No problems. It is stiff though the truck gets thrown side to side pretty well. I'm getting the Toytec coil-overs installed this weekend. I'm thinking it should take some of the harshness out.
