    I just got my new 5100 installed on all 4. I also went with Toyo Open County A/T.

    My stock size tire was 265/65/17

    My toyo are 265/70/17

    I installed my front 5100 at 2.5". The rear was just an install of shocks nothing else.


    At stock my front end sat at 19 inches off the ground. Now my truck sits at 22.5 off the ground. that is a total of 3.5" My tires added just over an 1 inch additional.

    Really I thought most people set them at .85 or 1.75 to level it. Did you do the diff drop as well?

    thanks for posting pics. I have the tsb aal and want to set the fronts at 2.5 but wasn't sure how is would level. Looking at yours, if I put 4 5100's on, I am guessing it should be level. I will post pics when I do.
