    Go with the Bilstein 5100's and a rear aal instead imo.

    the only think is i wanted to get 3"s of lift so later on i can put some 33"s on. Is their any way i can get 3"s of lift from the 5100s like running a half inch spacer on top of the 5100's?

    Yep, that's the one. My rear is Skyjacker because the shop was out of the Pro Comp, but they said it was comparable.

    Thanks for your help guys. Both or your trucks look sick. I think you made my mind up for me. How was the install? Did you guys go it yourselves? And did you have to extend the rear break line in order to accomplish the 3"s of lift in the back?

    I had a shop install mine... took a little over an hour. Didn't have to extend the brake lines at all... solid first lift I would say!

    I read that procomp shocks aren't to great but iam sure they be fine for just driving around town, and the only time you go offroad is to go to the beach or getting to that camp site. I would get some shock boots to keep the dirt out. Also look into getting new UCAs to correct alignment

    The shop I bought it from charged $200, and 4 Wheel Parts wanted $400...

    I've been offroad a couple times and it held up great, but I wouldn't expect it to have the same quality as a $800-1200 kit.

    I just bought the same lift for 387$ shipping included from truckaddons.com, check it out, and don't forget to use the promo code OFF 20, i think that's it

    If you find a good offroad shop, see if they can order it for you at the same price, and they should be more inclined to discount the install. That's what I did with mine...got the kit next-day vs. waiting for it to be in stock and shipped, plus they discounted the install. Best of luck to you!

    i put my lift on myself...pretty easy ( i say its easy, but i've lifted several trucks and lowered tons of cars so it wasn't my first time), i had a shop swap out my springs for me since the procomps are really stiff (40 bucks and well worth it). all 4 shocks come with boots to keep dust and dirt out.

    i bought it from a guy who got sent 2 kits by 4wd parts i believe.... they would never send anyone to come get the extra kit. Maybe they were seperate...but it was all packaged together for me. After looking at the description it doesn't state it comes with it, so yea make sure you get some if the retailer doesn't package them with the kit.
