    Couldn't be happier! I have a little shudder on takeoff (that the TSB actually improved) and a slight 26mph vibration (but that was there before the 5100s). I have a few washers to adjust the carrier bearing (I'll do that another time though).

    The truck is almost perfectly level, it's awesome! Thanks for all the good advice and thanks to Downsouth Motorsports for a great deal on the 5100s!

    Next step will be some 265/70/17 Duratracs (with my tax refund money)

    the tsb was a little stiffer, not a big deal and honestly i feel the truck handles better because of it. it took care of a lot of the take off shudder.

    the 5100s at 2.5 make the front stiffer but again it feels like it handles flatter. definitely more like a truck but that's what i want.

    honestly i still find it very comfortable and have no regrets whatsoever.

    yea i noticed the same thing with my lift, went with OME. truck was stiffer but i love the feel of a truck ride, same thing you get with a rally car..wouldn't have it any other way! so what's next on the mod list?

    after tires i'm not sure. i'm not one for loud exhausts or sound systems. i think i may ride it out from here, maybe some off-road lights and other small bits

    technical service bulletin. some owners complained of the rear ends of their trucks bottoming with load, so if youre under warranty, they upgrade you to a 4-leaf (as opposed to 3) rear leaf pack. do a search, there's tons of info on it.
