    5100's @ .85 w/Eibach coils, Wheelers 2" AAL, 17x8 MK6 wheels, 255/75/17 KM1's
    You could get some coils to go with the Billys. Either the Eibachs with the billys set at .85 or the OME 885 coils with the billy set at 0 will get you 2-3" of lift and the ride should be good.

    This turns into a money pit......Going 2.5" most likely means new uca's, then spacers or wheels to clear the uca, and tires since after the lift stock tires dont look right.....Have fun op. Most of us have been down this road

    Foglights are for fog, not oncoming traffic!
    Don't preload 5100's.
    buy some 883's for $180.

    Go 1.75" then. No point in going to 2.5". Going all the way up could lead to alignment issues, and possibly a stiff ride.

    Im not sure about how much the 883 will lift, but I had 5100's at 2.5" on the stock coil. I didnt like the stiff ride so I got 885x's and put the 5100's at 0". Just with the 885x's I got 2.5" lift up front. My stock UCA's wouldn't align properly at that height. Some people dont have issues, but I did. So I had to get new UCA's too.
    There are a lot of people on here running 5100's at 1.75" on stock coils with absolutely no issues at all. My friend who I offroad with has that setup with no issues as well. If you only want to spend 500 bucks I would just do 5100's if I were you
