Pics: 5100's - 2"AAL
 
Thought I might share these pics seeing how lots of guys are doing or thinking of doing this lift option. 5100's all 4 Corners and a 2"AAL. Those are the only mods. Easy install 5 hours total thanks to the great sticky write ups. Chris4X4 I think is the write up guy.

Truck looks great!

Any vibrations, how's your alignment?

FLYNHD 01-25-2011 09:01 AM

How is the ride quality compared to stock? Interested in same or similar setup.
Thanks

Where did you purchase ? Thinking of same setup on my TRD Sport.

Looks good. Also like your BHLM's.

NEMESISVETTE 01-25-2011 09:06 AM

I just did this yesterday, so have yet to get it alignment, I can see with my eyes its gonna need it. As for Vibes.... I can kinda feel some at 10mph or so, but im sure once it all settles down and the alignment is done it will go away seeing how weak the vibes are now. The ride feels better than stock at the moment.. I made sure to pay attention to ride feel at stock right before I did the install and first thing I felt for was ride feel during first drive.. Felt good and less jarring IMO.

Got the 5100's from DownSouth Motorsports... Great Price $283
and got the 2"AAL from Toytec for $85

So did this lift for $368 bucks!

Black Head Light Mod I think... Do you have any pictures of your CV joints? Are the fins touching?

Very nice!

bgbdwlf 01-25-2011 09:59 AM

looks good, i just did close to the same type lift but with eibachs and uca's.

love the color also (i have the same).

kramer2k 01-25-2011 12:09 PM

Nice looking Taco! Love the stance.

Did you have the rear TSB done previously or did you only have the non-TSB 3 leaf pack? I have the rear TSB done and I'm trying to decide if 2.5" on my 5100s will be even or if I'll be nose high.

Bama_TACO 01-25-2011 12:20 PM

Looks good. I just did basically the same lift with the fronts at 2.5 and Icon progressive 3 leaf springs in the rear.

non TSB.. I only had 3 leafs and then added the 2" AAL

Nice...IMHO, this is the way the trucks should come from the factory.

What size are your Michelin AT2s? They look bigger than stock.

dira1987 01-26-2011 09:19 AM

Sorry for the noob question but what is TSB? I really like what youve done and im looking at getting the 5100 and am still settling on what i want for the rear (putting spindles up front). Truck looks good!
