    I just pulled the trigger and ordered me some Moto Metal 951 16x8 with my tax refund from wheelsforless.com. Total price: $509.75 (not bad if you ask me):broccoli:

    Additionally, I just got my 5100 bilstein in the mail yesterday. I am in the market for an 1.5" real leaf pack for the back so any suggestions are welcomed!

    I will install the rims as soon as I get them at a local tire shop and wait to install my lift at a friend's house over the summer when I am in NC.

    Super stoked! :goingcrazy:

    Should I stick with the rear packs ($150-200) each or would individual aal be okay?

    I will definitely post pics after I get the rims on and another one after I get the lift on.

    I think for the price a pack is better than just one but are you going to want to go higher with the lift?

    The pack's around $150 each while the individual aal are around $80. I just didn't know if it made a difference.

    I plan to lift it at 1.75" in the front and 1.5" in the back and be done with that since my trucks a mall crawler with an exception of minor off roading to get to some fishing/hunting spots.

    Individual AAL wouldn't bother the wear and tear of the rear suspension?

    No, but if you do any flexing or off roading you might want to look at longer shocks for the rear. But just for daily driving you'll be fine.

    Okay, thanks for your feedback.

    I will post pics when they're done. My wheels should arrive tomorrow and I'll have it on either this weekend or next week.

    Lift won't go on til the summer tho.

    I see you kept the front mudflaps on. Still running stock tire size?

    Ya, I'm running the stock tires for now, I eventually want to get me 265/75/16 tires after these wear out or I get enough money, whichever comes first, which will add about an inch of height which isn't enough to remove the mudflaps imo.

    I ditched the stock mudflaps tho, the mudflaps you see on my truck are made by Husky. I bought them via a group buy on here a few months ago.

    This thread is way overdue...I kind of got sidetracked with other things. Recently, I got some money to treat my truck.

    I have the front bilsteins and am planning to set it at 1.75 and order some rear bilsteins and some tires. I'm torn between the two tires (both in P265/75r/16): Toyo Open Country AT2 or Hankook Dynapro ATM as 90% of my driving is on the pavement.

    In the meantime, I have made some cheap tweaks to the truck by blacking out my grill emblem and my skid plate to give it a cleaner look.
