    How is the ride with the 5100's and stock springs??? I was going to do the same thing but had read the ride was a little stiff. No problems with alignment after using stock UCA's?

    5100's are a great way to lift your truck bang for the buck. It is a little stiff but you can always get OME 885x coils to soften it which is probably what I will do in the future. My truck drives so well at this time I don't want to mess with it.

    Truck looks great! Love the wheel and tire combo, letters out was a good choice. Black badges and BHLM? :drool::popcorn:

    How is your alignment? And also what are your measurements from ground to bottom of fender front and rear?

    Thanks, and again so sick! I can't wait to start my build. Hopefully soon!!

    Man that's a nice stands you got on that Taco. Don't really understand the lift you put on it but if you don't mind me asking about how much do you have invested in the lift? I'm thinking about a 2" lift for my 2011. Those tires really set the lift off and makes the truck look good.

    Its probably $450 for the lift and $400 for the UCA's. I did the install so I probably saved $300 or $400 on labor. I did have to spend $150 on the alignment at 4 wheel because no one else wanted to touch it. So I probably have a little over a grand in the lift and close to 2K in wheels and tires. If you have any more questions let me know.

    Probably one of the most clean 2nd generations I have seen. How were mpg's affected with the tires?

    I get about 15MPG. Maybe a little better if I try but I also drive on the toll way that is next to my house, the speed limit is 80 which kills my mileage.

    Smart build. Looks great and useable, good value on the lift and wheels. I have a set of SCS 6's on the way in silver, like the gun metals on yours.

    What is the closest plasti-dip color or duplicolor to the stealth 6's (gunmetal)? I want to match my badges which I will be doing soon to the wheels before I get them... Especially now with the new 8's out... Tough decision!

    Truck looks sick and I still come back to it as one of my favorites! Nice and clean :cool:

    Just saw you posted. The only thing I have much experience with is duplicolor and I know there is a color matched to the truck MGM made by duplicolor. If you are going to match your badges do the duplicolor and clear them. IMO

    Similar with the stock tires. I measured before and after the install and 2.5 is pretty much what I'm at. I'm about to get the OME 885's to improve the ride. The billys at 2.5 are kind of a harsh.
