    I can't decide on 1" or 1.5" lift for the back. What do you think I should do? I'll be on stock tires until they need replacing.

    I'll be setting the front at 2.5". I only have 2 leafs so I think that means I don't have the TSB done. I bought the truck 2 days ago.

    I would go w/ a 2" aal since u don't have rear TSB. I may be wrong but you may need extended brake lines also. Also w/ 2.5 up front, some say u will need ucas to correct alignment. Maybe some1 w/ this setup will chime in. Post pix of ur truck when done!

    The highest I wanna go in the rear is 1.5" so it stays somewhat level. FWIW, I don't do any off roading.

    I have 2.5'' up front with tsb and 1.5'' aal. heres a pic. I think 2'' aal will be good for you if your not going to get the tsb done.

    Good point. With a 2" will I be fine with the rear shocks and brake lines? I'm on a budget.

    Ok . Im currently have this set up as you wanna do on ur truck . As far as I know u don't have TSB on the rear ( factory w/o TSB 3 leaf pack ) if u wanna level ur truck get 2" AAL or 1.5"aal if u want a bit nose high for 2.5" lift up front .
    My truck run straight and balance on high speed no wander or uneven worn out tires .
    no need extended brake line for 2.5" lift

    You will be fine with stock brake lines, but if you take the truck offroad rear shocks should be in your near future. If just drivin on the road stock rear shocks would probably be ok.

    Make sure you get an alignment after you lift it. Otherwise your tires will look like this \ / and were out prematurely on the outside edges.

    So with a 2" aal the rear will still sit a tad bit higher than the front? Should I get a .25" spacer for the front left or is that pushing it? How much are new uca's? Oneofmany503, what size tires are those?

    You might be like 1/2'' or so higher in the rear. I'm not sure about the spacer, I didn't do it. New uca's are anywhere from 400 to 1000. I'm running 285 75 16.

    I'll be ordering the 2" aal today. Thanks for all the help guys. I did my reaearch but just wanted to pan out the last few details. Does the 112710 discount code still work for Toytec or is there a new one?

    Adding my $0.02, wondering about buying from Wheelers Offroad versus Toytec for the 5100's and the rear AAL?

    Both seem like good vendors, wondering if there is anyone that has experience one way or another?

    OP,....please post pictures of your truck and any feedback after having the mods in place for a while?
