    I don't recall the PN of the 5100s, but they were regular old 5100 rears.

    0-1" according to the previous post.

    No problems. You'll be fine also.

    A block is simplistic and easy to install. Yes an AAL or leaf pack is better, but for a new truck who cares? Wear the new components out and replace when a new leaf pack is needed. I don't blame OP for not sinking another $500-$1000 for new leafs.

    I'd pick a block over an AAL honestly. The block won't squeak, and if it's a street queen you won't tell a difference.

    Yeah I would venture to guess 95% of trucks on here don't leave the pavement.
