    Ok here goes. Cuz my head hurts, too...many...options! I want a perfectly level stance, no more than 2.5" lift, and a great ride on road, with good performance in some MINOR off roading. Wanna run 265/75/16s. This is, and will be my long time daily driver, I don't plan on beating her up, but def stretching her legs! I have been researching SO many different options that I am at a stale mate. It's between the OME full kit, or the Toytec adjustable Billstein kit with Eibachs( I think its listed for $899.99)? OME is right around $750.00. I don't necessarily HAVE to go the cheaper $ route, just want whats best for my applications. Any and all input GREATLY appreciated!

    Its all up to you man, both of those are great kits, used by many members on this site.
    you can fit 265/75 stock, btw

    The ome supposedly has a better ride, but I can't talk from experience.
    I have the billy/eibachs and love it.

    Old Man Emu is hard to beat regardless of price. Given the 2 choices, I would get the OME all day long.

    I went through the same deliberation. I ended up with the eibach, 5100 and aal option. I am very pleased with the results. Great ride quality and have no vibe issues. A lot of guys on here with sage advice swear by the OME lift as well so .......

    Blackshirts, so you can run 5100s w/ OME? See this is why my head hurts, some say you shouldn't do that. Then yoy have trim packing, and "taco lean spacers", i just want the best for my money and apps. Since I want a nice on road ride as my priority I am leaning more towards OME i guess, because I have heard it performs very well on road as well as off. So I guess I will narrow this down then i can go with the responses. I am going with OME, so someone PLEASE tell EVERYTHING I need to make it level at 2.5" and hwhat i need in order to do away with my spacers and blocks. Thank you so so much for input!

    Awesomec Chris4x4 thank you! I do have the TSB leaf ordered, do you suggest I just skip that and go straight to 2" AAL? Or what do I need if I get the TSB leaf done? See this is overwhelming!

    I just assumed it was an issue with 2011, because the 2011s were included in the TSB. I contacted my local dealer and they told me to bring it in that they have already ordered it for me. Man I am so lost in all this! Don't know what the f to go with!

    Take some deep breathes. All will be OK. I posted the parts you need. If you get the TSB springs, get the 1.5" AAL. If not, then get the 2". No biggie ;)

    You can run 5100 with 885s but highly not recommended with the 886s.

    Take measurements front and back to see what you need. If you think 2.5 up front maybe one aal in rear will make your truck sit level.

    OME shocks are better tho and prolly give you a better ride.

    no need to worry. It really isn't that complicated. If you are getting the shop to install your lift, you might bring them the aal along when you get the tsb done so they can install them at the same time. The place you are buying the kit from will tell you which aal you need. Usually it will give you a 1.5" lift on top of your tsb

    I'm mulling over this same stuff trying to decide what to do... I have a 2011 V6 access cab, if I go the OME route would I still want the 885 springs? I want about the same as Fox2011PM 2.5 inches of lift up front, I wouldn't mind keeping the stock rake, I like the rear a little higher than the front, would a 2" AAL do that?

    if you lift the front and back around the same, you'll keep the rake.
    885s are for stock bumpers, 886's are for plate bumpers/winches IIRC
