    Not worried about articulation too much, I will be doing mainly dirt trails for camping, nothing extreme. I'm looking at the light racing uca's as you mentioned and the total chaos desert madness uca's. it's about a $240 difference between the two...

    Well I think what I'm looking at is 5100's at .85" with eibach springs, uca's probably lr's not only for price but I won't be doing anything crazy, 1.5" aal in rear, 17x8 pro comp wheels and 265 at2's. hmm $2500 later....

    I did the same set up and if you time it right you can get below 2. I got a few Black Friday deals then scored on some promotions for wheels and tires.

    Toytec seems pretty reasonable. The blisten kit with the 5100's, eibach springs, and rear aal for $600, throw in the LR uca's and I'm just over 1k.

    Unless I find a tire I like in 275 I'll probably just go with 265's

    Any feedback on the rear aal that comes with the 5100 kit from toytec? I was originally looking at the icon aal. Is there a noticeable difference between the two?

    So I see what's involved with the cab mount, looks to be a bit if cutting, then weld a plate to cover. With front mud flaps removed what other plastic needs to be trimmed? This is for 285's with 2.5" lift

    I think I'm gonna make a move on these wheels, buy 3 get one free from 4wheel parts! ImageUploadedByTapatalk1365392922.088127.jpg

    Pro comp 17x9, set of 4 comes out to $600 out the door, good deal and awesome wheel. Throw on some 265/70r17 grabber at2 and I think I'll be a happy camper.

    I'm gonna run 5100's and ome 885 coils in the front with 2" aal in the rear.

    Scratch that, I guess 9" is too wide a wheel for a 265 tire... Ah well

    Now I'm reading a 265 tire is ok on a 9" wheel... As long as it's within the tire manufacturers wheel width range I don't see what the issue is. I'm looking at putting general grabber at2's 265/70 17 on 17x9 wheels, the tire rim width range is 7-9". Any thought on this combo?

    I ran 285-75-16 duratrac on a spacer lift with no issues. I had to remove mudflats (I wanted to anyways) and trim the plastic fender liner at the front wheels, about 2 inches where it meets the bumper.

    I like the duratracs, they are a nice looking tire, expensive though! I'm gonna go with 265's for now. And I can't find any reason to not go with the 17x9 wheels, even guy at my local 4wheel parts says they have done it with no issues.

    I noticed that, plus the eibach coils are on backorder... I think I'm gonna get the 5100's from dsm, then the aal and ome 885 springs from toytech. I have a dbl cab and from what I read from others the 885's will settle to about 2.25" lift. Then if I want more down the road I can do uca's and throw in a 3/4" spacer maybe.

    I'm in Cali though so with dsm I pay tax but shipping is free, with toytec I pay shipping but no tax... Also dsm offers the 5125 shock for the rear.
