    5100's at 1.75, Rear leaf TSB, Moto Metal 951 16x8, BFG TKO2 265/75/16, AFe Stage 2 CAI w/pro dry filter, Access Loredo tonneau cover, N-Fab steps, Tinted windows, EGR in channel vent visors, Ultragauge, UGA drink coasters in the front cup holders, and a Graco car seat in the back seat
    What are the different types of lifts? I see so many on here with "5100's set at this or that" What kind of lift is this? I have been out of the lift game for so long, back in the day it was mostly leaf springs front and rear. I know nothing about the front ends on these trucks and how to lift them. Seems to me the 5100's is the most common. I haven't been able to find a thread on here explaining the lifts, only what each truck has on it. Is there a thread I'm missing?

    far as i know the 5100s are nothing more than an upgraded shock absorber the lift game it still the same, theres the ever popular leafs, add a leaf and blocks, coil spacers, hockey pucks, coil overs 3link and 4 link set ups, long travel, body lifts, and well there is a new axel out that has nothing to do with suspension and will give you 4-6 in of lift forget what its called but is mainly for the jeeps i believe. you havent missed out on much same stuff better quality
