    Steve,
    how far off is your alignment when you set your billy's at 2.5"...i might go this route eventhough i have the toytec lift kit...i feel like being followed by fbi or cia whenever i look at your truck :D...

    i have the c-clip on the 5100's set at the highest setting which gives 2.85" of lift for the front. the tires are stock Rugged Trail T/A's which are P265/70R16

    That clip only gives you at the highest setting 2.5" never heard of it giving you 2.85"

    I'm trying to follow all 5100 threads. Going to do this mainly to level eventually. Just want to know if the vehicles in this thread are 5100's all the way around. I'm thinking of front only. And are they done with stock coils, any other mods with the 5100's. Diff drop?

    To all who posted trucks....Awesome rigs!
