    I don't have an answer to your question about the 5100s. You said you are airing down to 25, I suggest dropping that to 15 psi. That should help with the washboarding.

    Got the 5100s and Eibachs on. I got exactly 2.5 inches out of them. The ride is great, I don't want to say stiff, but more planted or solid is more like it with a lot less nose dive or roll. I'm very happy with the combo.

    I only did a Procomp rear leveling block with the 5100s back there. May upgrade in the future depending if I get a trailer, or have grander ideas for tires etc.

    Just added toolbox and roof-rack to haul my fishing boat 100's of miles into the backwoods every week. Goodrich K02s, Bilstein 5100 front and back, no lift.
    Yeah it is pretty darn nice up here. Same with up at Field BC area, beautiful up there.

    Here we have tons of fishing lakes, hiking trails, and so much offroading spots you can go wherever you want and never see any other trucks. I have driven literally weeks through BC backroads, and never see even a single other truck. Love that.

    Plus all these nice small towns north and south of Kelowna. Summerland, Peachland, Osoyoos, Okanagan Falls, Penticton, Vernon, Armstrong, Sicamous, etc. All within 1.5 hour scenic drive of Kelowna. Still pretty quiet up here too, lived in Vancouver many years. No more big city for me, can't stand that stuff now. All I need is a few hundred miles of bush, truck, and boat. Nothing better. Kind of like this. :)

    I like to visit Vancouver, couldn't live there though. Pretty much anywhere else in B.C. I could live there. The Valley is beautiful!! Nice pic, nice rig.

    I'm on the bottom ring. I let the spring do the lift.
