    I've had this rig for about a year now and finally started to build and mod it my way. This weekend, I am blacking out grille, bumper and wheels. I am gonna be installing new Bilstein 5100's all around with 1" shackles in rear and front set at 1.75". Posting pics as I go. :D

    Today, I completed the 5100 Bilstein install. I would dare say it was more lift than I expected. I add a 1"rear lift shackle and set the Bilteins at 1.75". I like it. Makes me Happy, Happy, Happy..

    did you use the stock coil springs? Been looking around this site quite a bit for info and I'd really like to go the Eibach/5100 route but i have a feeling it might make the truck look funny with only 31's (and i don't plan on going big b/c of fuel consumption). Curious to know if you had new coils or just used the old ones? Thanks
