    Just installed 5100’s all around with 1.75 setting on the front, tires are on the way Nitto Terra Grappler 285/75/16 here’s the pic what do you guys think ?

    II Will have tires on Monday, soon as I have tires installed I will post few pictures.

    My other question is should I go with AAL or lift block on the back?
    The only concern that I have is comfort, what would be the best solution to keep the suspension as soft as possible?
    AAL or lift block on the rear?

    getting there....
    those nitto's are sweet tires man. definitely go with an aal...........blocks wont ride as good, and you can have axle wrap with a block....aal's are better and smoother. as for the size of tire you are gonna use, as far as i know, if you are staying with stock rims....you will rub. gonna need spacers i do believe, and then, you may have to remove the mud flaps. just a heads up.

    I just noticed that when I move the wheel all the way, tire is touching spindle I definitely will need spacers.
    Any one out there with the same setup noticed the same problem?
    Or should I move the 5100’s all the way up to the max 2.5 and that should do it ?

    when getting 33" tires i think most people get aftermarket rims with less backspace than the stock. but if you like your stocks, keep em and throw on some spacers

    I do like the stock rims, I guess I will have to order spacers.

    Hey do you have an update? Did you get spacers? solve the rubbing? I'm wanting the identical lift you have with tires. Just want to know how much spacers cost and your opinion after driving it a while

    Truck looks good. Diggin the treads. Runnin 285/60/18 Nitto TGs on mine. Not factory rims, not 5100's yet either-just stock base model shocks. They suck. Shafted on the leaf TSB too so I'm gonna go with those big bump stop things in back & 5100's. Whoever had it before me removed the mud flaps & trimmed the bottom of the plastic a bit on each side but it still rubs barely when turning wheel all the way or hitting a bump with wheels turned. Not how I woulda done it but I'll eventually get it right.
