    If you plan on doing any offroading skip the spacers and go with a coil lift.

    3" lift Up front(Donahoe Racing ext. travel coil overs, Camburg UCA's), 1.5-2" lift in the back(aal and some billy 10" stroke short bodies), Bushwhacker Cut-Out fender flairs, 16"x10" Procomp Street locks, and 305/70 Procomp X-Terrains.
    Link to 5100s, I like Wheelers better, sometimes cheaper. My brother has some ebach coils that he used for 3 months, befor he went to coilovers. I can see if he wants to sell them. I have heard that everyone likes the 5100s and eibach coils.

    im still new to offroad stuff to bear with me
    my 5100s have the adjustable circlip(idk if they all do), should i use my stock coils and just change the position to 2.5 or should i go with the 881s or the eibachs on the stock position(which would have the same height effect i assume)?
    because the adjustable circlip and the coil spacer are the same thing
    any info would be appreciated

    You can use your stock coils and 5100's to get lift, but I have heard that the eibach coils ride better.

    Yes, the 5100's(set at stock heigth) with eibach coils will give YOU(coz you are a 4 cylinder) 3.5" of lift, but with 881s you will get close to 2.5-3" of lift.

    Link to thread for 5100s with eibach coils(with picks). Note weather or not the truck is a 4cyl or v6 and if they have a bumper.

    EDIT: Just talked to my brother, and he said he will give u a deal. $50 + shipping

    Don't put a locker in the front. You won't be able to steer,
    and take the best line when wheeling. It also increases
    the likely-hood of breaking CV axles.

    Leave open, or go with ARB (selectable).
