    Mount them to wheels before trying to mount them on your truck.....

    RCD, Procomp, or Fabtech basic kit would be the easiest! The best ride, the most suspension travel, and the least fender cutting.

    How do you figure "Most suspension travel"?

    what about the cheapest? i dont really need much travel. most of my offroading is in the sand. i just want the truck to sit a little higher and look good.

    A drop bracket lift doesnt give you anymore travel than whats stock. Consider looking at a 2.5" to 3" lift set up. The 5100's with OME 885 springs are good, as is a full OME set up, or a coilover of your choice.

    Well, I guess the travel essentially stays the same. But the useable travel is better. Because a 3" lift added to your stock suspension, is basically like going hiking in heels. You will loose down travel. (I know not a good example but you get the idea);)

    Ok. Travel remains the same though. You just have more upward travel (providing the lift installed allows and the coils dont bind before upper travel limits are reached, I.e., spacer lift). When used with a Uniball UCA, travel is increased.

    No! Actually the suspension stays the same. The UCA's will allow easier movement, but the stiffer/longer coils is why you loose the useable travel.

    The DB lifts will keep the LCA's at the mid point. So up travel and down travel stays optimum.

    As far as UCA's go I have issues with the designs out there. but that's a different topic.;)

    THe Uniballs have more range of motion than the Ball joints. We have been over this before. More range of motion allows for more down travel.

    sorry. i had a s10 before this and i had 15s. im just use to saying 33x12.50x15. i was looking at ome or the 5100 set up. they both seem to have good reviews. just when i research it seems like everyone is running something slightly different.

    go with the 33x11.5 with a 5.5 backspacing...the 33x12.5 are going to rub real bad!! and the 11.5 looks awesome...they will stick out of the wells about 1/2 inch.

    the most flexing i have to do is over ruts in sand. maybe some mud and trails during hunting season but not a whole lot. the 5.5 backspace would be better then 4.5? i was looking at xd hoss wheels with 4.5.
