Could use some advice

Hey all,

This is my first post here and I am seeking some advice. I purchased some Bilstein 5100's from the local shop here and am having them installed next Friday. I am going to run some Nitto Terra Grapplers, 285/65R18's. I have heard nothing but good things about the 5100's, but would you guys recommend something else to install along with those to improve performance and durability? As of right now, its just the 5100's. I paid roughly $470 for a set of four and have a tad bit of room left in my budget.

Any help will be muchly appreciated.

I left out the fact that I have a 2011 DC 4WD with the offroad package.

After doing a bit of looking around, would it benefit me to get an OME 885, along with the 5100's, for the front and an AAL for the back?

If you're planning on setting the front to add lift then you'll want an add a leaf or a full leaf pack in the rear to level it out. And if you're planning on a winch or steel bumper up front you'll want to up the springs as well.
