    I finally pulled the trigger and got serious about getting the parts together for a modest lift to accommodate some BFGs. TW made my parts and vendor choices pretty easy.

    I ordered Bilstein 5100s from Downsouth MotorSports. As others have said, Sonny is pretty awesome to do business with and he has the best prices out there. I had my Billies in five days. Pretty good time considering he had to ship them over 2800 miles!

    I also received my ToyTec front 1/4 spacer. Nuebs arranged a discount - enough to upgrade the shipping from UPS ground to Priority Mail - and I picked up the spacer at the Post Office the same day the 5100s arrived. I don't know how long it took for the spacer to ship as I don't check my mail very often.

    I haven't decided on wheels yet, but I'm close. I'm planning to do the lift, wheels and alignment at the same time. In the meantime, the 5100s and the spacer are resting on my wife's dining room floor. Surprisingly, she hasn't bitched yet, and that's driving me crazy.

    Thanks DownSouth MotorSports, thanks ToyTec Lifts, thanks Neubs, and thanks TW and all its knowledgeable members, for leading me in the right direction!

    Sound awesome man. Ya, Sonny is a really good guy, they forgot to send me the mounting hardware with one of my 5100's. I called them as soon as I noticed it and I had a package the next day with everything i needed, free of charge:D.

    I have to agree with you on Sonny. Talked to him twice today with various questions and he spent quite a bit of time with me on the phone going over stuff with me and encouraged me to call back anytime. He was more than helpful. A+ for customer service and his prices aren't too shabby either.
