    This has made me want to get it even more so now, my noob set up will be set 5100's at 1.75 on the front, and keep the rear leafs stock.. is the aal tsb not applicable for the 2013s? I just want the level look.

    and i might get a pair of them wheels!

    Edit - My sport has the 17'' damn

    Hello all.
    If any of you know? I am picking up a 2013 DBLB 4X4 TRD Sport in march. I will have to look if it has the 4 leafs or 3 leafs. I would think 4, but who knows until I look.

    Having the LB does that change anything if I were to do the 5100's all around, front set at 1.75. I am really talking about any kind of vibrations that people complain about after doing a lift.

    I did not read on any of your posts here about anyone complaining about these vibrations.
    also If I should I get a front differential drop. I want to do it right.

    Bed length shouldn't make a difference and a diff drop isn't necessary for that small of lift.

    Doc,

    Any more pics of your taco? Looks great! I'm about to order some 5100's as well. Where did you order it from? Downsouth?

    Thanks for the compliment!

    I don't want to hijack the OP's thread, but here are few pics.

    I'll be sure to come back and post pics after installing the Bilstein's.

    Yes just a touch of rake, I could have gotten away with 1.75 but held back. No rubbing at all lock to lock. The tires are Hankook RF10 At's, also the spedo is now dead on accourding to my Garmin.

    You can use the 16" TT wheels.. you'll just need a new set of tires too.

    I installed 5100's at 1.75 one evening with a buddy..the next day I had it scheduled to get the rear spring TSB done. Nice little lift and handles pulling the boat better.

    To the OP or anyone else with 5100's at 1.75.. How was your Camber? Was it positive camber? \---/ Mine was horrible. Finally ended up getting a set of LR UCA's and now |---| all is good :)

    I reused mine as my truck only has 12K miles on it and they looked new. If you have some miles on the clock it's a good idea to replace them.

    Thanks! Btw, can you guys chime in if you have vibration from installing the 5100s and also note if you are 2wd or 4wd? My research is suggesting the vibration is mainly related to the 4wds?

    Careful, that link is for 2nd gens. From your profile I think you have a 1st gen so you wouldn't want to order those.

    The vibes are usually driveline vibrations so it wouldn't matter 2 v. 4wd
