    With 2.5" you're going to need extended shocks

    To much to list...see sig for more...
    If you don't duly flex your rear you can get away with 5100's model c-476 but if you do fully flex the rear you might need to get the RCD Bilstein for 3"-4" rear lift just modify the bump stops so you don't bottom it out. But call Wheelers Offroad and talk to Dan or Johnny.
