    thanks.
    i didn't think about doing the block at first, but like i said earlier, it looked nose high to me after installing the 5100's.
    it measured perfectly level but didn't look right, so i put in the 1" blocks.
    i couldn't find any negative feedback with the 1" blocks.

    I love your truck! Since I want to do much of what you have already done, I think you should put on the wheel spacers so I can see how they. :)

    Have you noticed any difference in the ride after putting in the blocks in the rear?

    hey thanks!!
    im not sure about the spacers, it drives perfect the way it is, and the idea of them, although i like the look, really doesn't sit well with me, i don't want to end up with vibrations or anything like that. im not sure what kind of experiences other people have had with them, but im still on the fence about them.
    i think it actually drives better with the blocks, it felt like i was pointing up in the air when i just had it leveled with the 5100's.

    Looks good... So you still happy with the 5100's and 1' block? I just ordered all mine today 1' Toytec block and billies for all 4 corners.

    no axle wrap or anything with the blocks? Any difference in the ride once you installed the blocks?

    thanks! still love it, no issues what so ever. the front feels a little stiffer but i honestly can barely tell any difference from stock. my only issue is seeing all the monsters on this site and wanted to go bigger! lol
    still on the fence about throwing on some spidertrax 1.25" spacers to pop the wheels out a bit, i've heard it can cause some rubbing in spots and im not going to start hacking stuff up and with the crap weather and roads here i need the mud flaps.

    EDIT: i don't know how that unhappy face got up there or how to get rid of it! lol

    Thanks and ya I know my biggest issue was seeing the bigger lifted trucks and wanting the but the wife won't let me spend all that cash lol...

    Plus I am putting 18's and either duratracs or BF AT's..

    If I was you I would skip the spacers and get some different rims so you get a wider stance with the width and back spacing... But that costs coin...

    it's a little more then i want to spend right now, the tires alone were a pretty large chunk of change, add in new wheels and sensors and it can really add up.

    I'm subbing to this thread. I really like the look of your truck and it's pretty much exactly what I picture what I want mine to look like. I'm trying to get the rear TSB done on mine now then plan on doing the 5100's in the front.. Great job

    The truck looks great .

    Im about to order my 5100's , I plan on setting the front to 1.75". And you have me thinking about doing lift blocks in the rear, I can see what you mean about the front looking alittle high in other peoples pictures .
    My only concern is im going to be running a OEM tire size for a long time, will it look stupid ?

    ^OEM tires won't look stupid. You're changing the ride height by such a small margin, so you won't have a weird wheel well gap, just a level truck.

    im not sure becuase i put on my tires at the same time but like pra4sno said, i don't think it's a big enough lift for it to look bad. there must be someone on this site that has that lift with stock size tires on here somewhere.
