    The shadow kind of sucks but its to cold to take more. Hope this helps some people with a lift decision.

    This is actually the 2" aal from toytec. I set the 5100's to 2.5" the back end still sits up higher then the front.

    i have the same set up, 5100s set at 2.5 but i have 1.5 AAL and its almost perfectly level. why did u get spacers? were ur tires close from rubbing on the uca? im thinking about getting wheel spacers cus they rub when im at full lock and im scared when i go offroading they r gunna rub like crazy.

    I have the spacers just for the more aggressive stance. Im getting new wheels and tires soon. Which size tire do you have. I plan on getting 265/75/16.

    Yeah I did. I heard they were built to.
    No I didn't. when I get new tires I'm going to get it aligned and if it doesnt get in spec Im going to buy them.

    That was a good idea putting the ladder for comparison. I was wondering when someone would do that.

    How dose it ride with the front set at 2.5" with the stock springs? I thought I read some where on here that setting them at 2.5'' causes to much preload on the stock springs? I have know idea just trying to research this because I would like to do this mod once I get my truck.
    looks great!!!!
