    Anyone have part numbers for the adjustable bilstein shocks used for a lift? Looking to go up a few inches but i daily drive it and dont need anything crazy. Would like to keep a stock/improved ride quality. there are like 3 different types of 5100's and idk what ones i'd have to use.
    Also if theres any reccomendations on what else i should use that'd be cool. Not looking to fit big tires for offroading but maybe a skinny 33 at most

    I believe you need 6112 series to get adjustable height. 46-241627 is the part number I used for my 2014. With a 3" lift on the front I suggest installing UCA's as well. I personally like a ball-joint style UCA such as the SPC brand.

    Yeah idk if i'd need the whole 3" right away, probably just an inch or two and possibly go up in the future. Did you add a leaf to go with it?

    Changing lift height on the front is a bit of a process with the 6112 shocks. The Dakar leaf pack lifts the rear about 2.75" over OEM springs, no add-a-leaf needed. With the additional bits (pinion shims and Taco lean shim) I have it is a little over 3" lift...then add the weight of a canopy and it is just under 3" lift. So, my Taco is pretty much sitting at a stock 1" rake but about 3" taller than stock.

    Got a pic of it the way it sits? And how's the ride quality with that set up?
    I dont know if i'd even need that much of a lift but the option of having it would be nice haha. Not too many off road vehicle trails where i am in southern ontario but i'd like some height and a decent size tire for when we get heavy snow, hunting, camping, etc.. it gets a bit mucky some times

    Ride quality is great IMO. The E rated tires are a bit rough though.

    That looks like the exact height im looking at achieving, maybe a little bit less.

    And yeah E tires are a bit stiffer, if i went with new tires i'd maybe go E just because of the gravel roads around me would probably eat up a C tire.
    What size you got on there? Looks good

    I do like the E rated tires for the durability for sure! My tires are 285/75r16 aka 33". Currently, I have Goodyear Duratrac tires and I am not impressed with them, they are lackluster on wet roads. I will probably purchase Toyo Open Country AT3 next time around.
