    Light bar and bumper guard, 3/16 steel skid plates for engine, tranny and transfer box, OME 881 springs with 5100 shocks at mid clip. AAL in rear. Positraction rear diff.
    The 5100 won't settle it's the springs that are settling. Replace the shocks with the 5100s and set them either at the second from the bottom for .85 inch lift or the third from the bottom for 1.75 inches of lift. I'd go with the 1.75 setting since the springs will probably settle more over time.
