You are right to a certain extent. 2.5 is right on but it rides like crap....trust me. the uca's just help the alignment. Its really hard to align it once you go to 2.5. I was thinking of going higher to but what I am going to do is set the 5100's at .85 and get eibach coils. Right at 2.7 inches and rides cushier.

at 1.75 you should be perfectly level.

check out my build page
I have before and after pics, mine are set at 1.75 now and it rides pretty good.

the double cabs are a little heavier in the rear, I have seen guys go .85 and 1.75 with double cabs. I think you will be fine with 1.75, best way to tell is jack up the front from the frame at .85 and then 1.75 and see what looks best. I vote 1.75, you will be fine.

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.
