    Ok guys I've decided that the only lift that is truely right for me and will serve its purpose is the bilstein 5100s/rear tsb. My truck isn't so much as an offroad playtoy (it will be a few years down the road) as it is a tool to get me back in the woods for huntin n such. Just wanted to put up a list of what I think I need, if I'm missing something chime in!

    Billy 5100's in the front at 2.5"
    Rear leaf spring tsb ( along with the aal, they put billy 5100 in the rear correct?) I need this done as the truck sags with the fourwheeler or camper pretty bad.
    265/75/16 nitto tg.

    This is goin to be my first lift so I'm excited about it. If the dealership does the rear tsb all I will really have to buy as far as suspension goes is the front bilsteins,right? I might also go ahead and get a diff. drop kit. Open to opinions!

    X2. You will get the yellow and blue trd shocks. 5100's are silver in color with blue and white lettering.

    Ok I misunderstood what exactly came with the rear tsb then. So I'm going to go ahead and order all 4 5100s. Should I still get the rear tsb done before i put the billys on to get the AAL or is there a better one out there than what toyota puts on?
