    like the look of your truck reaper looks good i have been trying to get the rear tsb done but the stealership keeps giving me the run around saying that i may be out of warranty even though it only has 35000 on it but i figured this will work for now

    Same set up and I am about the same .5 higher in the rear. Sits good, I think if I went to 2.5 in front I would be level but with toolbox and any weight nose high. My truck is my dd though, once it is not I will for sure go the full res coilover route and full rear leaf pack. Gonna start collecting armor now to protect future investment. Need to make it last a few more years as the daily driver though, so the 5100s work great for me now and give a great look.

    Thanks. The pics in the gallery are straight stock the day after I got it. Since then it's gotten the rear tsb, billies all around and XD revolvers in matte black wrapped in BFG TA/KOs. I gotta get some new pics up.
