    I'm trying to see how many people have had issues lifting their double cab short beds. Please let me know your experience so I can determine if I want to spend a little more money right now. :D

    it varies from truck to truck. a cb drop fixed mine, but you can also unbolt your cb bearing and flip it over and it will drop it a bit. I did not know that but the guys at Je Reel driveline were telling me this. worked for me but i have a little more than 2.75" lift.:eek:

    You should add a option to the poll " I still have vibrations and I have installed a diff drop and a carrier bearing drop and have taken each out seperately to try and solve."

    I have the above set up, 5100's at 2.5.

    Same here, sort of. I'm a prerunner so I didn't need a differential drop, but I do have a carrier bearing drop and 3 degree shims and I have the slightest vibes from 5-10 mph and again at 20-25mph. I have to accelerate really slow to feel them and under normal acceleration i don't feel it. At some point, I will switch to a 1 piece driveshaft.
