    I know there's been a butt load of questions like this, but is there really any significance between the two?

    Other than the .5-1.0 inch lift is the performance any different than to the 4600?

    Because when I look at the TSB pictures and then i look at mine it seems like it rides at the same height.

    without doing any in depth research...im going to assume the 4600 shock is for trucks that NEVER see any dirt or offroad whatsoever and are strictly a street shock

    the 5100 series is listed on their site under lifted and offroad trucks

    as far as differences go...im betting the 4600 will be a better on road ride...but if you do any sort of offroading...id go with a 5100 series...

    Oh ok well time to look for some 5100s that can stand up to the ELEMENTS.

    Will the 5100s work with the Toytec Ulimate kit

    I'm assuming that they came with the Sport package?
