Nice looking truck. Can't tell difference between 1.75" and 2.5"

Thanks, Larry. Are you running 285's? If so, that's probably why it's hard to tell the difference on the lifts. I'm only running 265's.

After reading this my understanding to level out the front with the rear WITH OUT doing any modifications in the rear is to instal the 5100s in the front at 1.5. Is this correct? Also is there a cheaper way of leveling the truck?

Adding just the 5100's and setting them at 1.75" should make it pretty level. I have the rear tsb and set my 5100's at 1.75 and have a slight rake which I don't mind because I sit level when pulling my boat.
As far as cheaper goes, you can probably get spacers for the front but for a little extra the 5100's provide a nicer ride.

I have on 285's but they are all terrain tires, so their not too aggressive looking. Your tires match the truck nicely.

i have an '07 AC 4x4 with no TSB and billies all around...set at 1.75'' up front. sits about dead level, rides super nice. stiffer than stock, makes everything feel 'nice and tight'

yes sir i did and i LOVE it. if it weren't this thread i would've gone with 2.5 and probably wouldn't have been as happy. gotta do the rear bilsteins in the next couple of weeks and maybe wheel spacers. what do you guys think?

I have the tsb and was thinking of an AAL with 5100 fronts. Should i set them for 2.5 with front differential spacers?

yeah, i'll have to take a look at them. i've done shocks on my old Jeep Cherokee, shouldn't be too much harder than that, right?

please let me know how you like the spacers and post some pics.

Well after reading alot, the TSB is scheduled next Monday for my 11 DCLB 4x4. Soon to follow will be 5100s at 1.75. Currently running 265/75/16. Correct me if I'm wrong but 1.75 is level without headache of 2.5 in. (alignment etc). Will I need a diff drop for 1.75 5100s?
