    Hey everyone,

    Immersed myself in information and searching on here about lifts and I have a list of what I am going to get. I just want to make sure I am not screwing something up and spending money I do not need to spend so give me the ok please!

    -5100s all around
    -OME 885
    -1.5" aal
    -Wheelers Offroad Steelies 16x8 black with 4" backspacing (going for a little wider look)
    -265/75-16 BFG km2

    Now for a couple quick questions:

    1- I will run the 5100s at 0 with the 885 springs correct?
    2- Will the 1.5" aal make the rear level or do I need the 2"?
    3- I know its a big debate and everyone is different, but the build I have seen with the wheels I want he runs 285s. Can I get away with that? I dont do any serious offroading (for lack of spots to do so).

    Am I missing anything? Should I add anything? Diff drop maybe?

    Thanks for the help, there is so much info with the search info its a little overwhelming so I want to make sure I got it right before I do it.

    The 285's should fit, you will need to trim a bit of the inner wheel well.

    Had tons on the old Taco's.... new Tundra is pretty stock
    The front 5100's arent recommended with the 885's or 886's due to shock valving. The shocks are built to handle the weaker factory springs, so there may be some dampening quirks running the 5100's and 885's together. I'd get the OME front shocks built to handle the springs.
    As for the rear, it depends on how much lift you get out of the 885's. It seems to vary from what I have seen of them. Mine were an old set and netted 1.75" of lift, however some guys get like 3 1/2" somehow. If you want the most lift possible in the front (dont go over 3" by much!!), you'll want some OME 1/2" top spacers and stud kit for the front, and the 2" aal for the rear to match. Maybe even the 1 1/2" aal, along with a 1" block depending on what you want the truck to look like, and if you regularly haul stuff in the back.

    285's should fit easy with a little trimming and removal of the mud flaps.

    1- I will run the 5100s at 0 with the 885 springs correct?
    -yes, I also ran a 1/2" spacer

    2- Will the 1.5" aal make the rear level or do I need the 2"?
    -do you have the rear TSB done, if so then the 1.5 will work otherwise go with the 2"

    3- I know its a big debate and everyone is different, but the build I have seen with the wheels I want he runs 285s. Can I get away with that? I dont do any serious offroading (for lack of spots to do so).
    -yes, you will have to to do lots of trimming, I was not able to run them until I put the spacer on, it is physically 1/2" wide and give about 3/4"-1" of lift. My 885s only gave me about 2.5"-2.75" of lift and the 285s rubbed like crazy, once I put the spacer in I was at 3.25" and the 285s only rubbed while flexing and turning

    Yeah, all I had to trim was a little plastic with a pocket knife. I was about to go snap a pic but forgot the truck is gone r.i.p., LOL.

    With the 4 in B/S you'll rub more when turning. I would go with the 4.5".

    Do you have a link or can you tell me which spacer helped you out? I do not have the TSB done although my dealership told me they will do it if I want. I think ill just go with the 2".

    I currently have 1.5 inches of lift on my 885s. I believe its from the supercharger weight
