    Rear 5100's will not lift your truck. You will need an add a leaf or different spring pack to get any lift in the rear.

    I dont know a whole lot about it but check out DownSouth Motorsports, Wheelers Offroad, Toytec, etc. Do some searching on here and you should find all kinds of info. I know from experience that DownSouth Motorsports kicks ass. Give them a call and talk to Marco and he will give you plenty of options and set you up with exactly what you need. They have really good prices also. They are a vendor on here.

    Bilstein 5100's (.85), Eibach Coils, AAL, Magnaflow exhaust, Volant Intake, OKledlight pods, Front Skid Plate, 4% Tinted Windows, Weathertec Floor Liners, Double Din Pioneer Player, 2 10" Memphis SR Subs, Plasti Dipped Blacked out Bumper, Grill, & Emblems, Custom Bed Rack, TRD Nation interior LED dome kit.
    If you get the Bilsteins you can set them at .85", 1.5", 2.5". If you order them from toytec you can click on add a leaf to the rear when you order the shocks and get whatever size lift you want for the rear. I believe it is like $79 for the leaf.
