    Got this quote for a 2012 installed with 5100 all around and a AAL. Does this sound like a good deal? How much did you pay?

    The install is pretty easy......hardest part is getting the shocks swaped to the springs. Any shop can do it though for a fee. Not giving you a hard time if you have someone else do the work but will save you some coin and fun to learn more about the truck. Its really all about loosening "a few" bolts and swaping the parts! The how to's are sticky's in the suspension section. Good luck man, you'll really like the ride and the stance!

    I just had 5100s put on all the way around for $150 labor and $280 for the shocks so $430 total. I have the lifetime alignment at Firestone so just did the alignment there.

    Sorry I just saw this. We could have done it at my house. What shop did you use? I will need tint done.

    Yours is looking good. I have an SR5 MGM coming in by the end of the month. Hopefully this Friday. I have Toytec coil overs from my FJ for the front. Trying to decide what is best for the back.
