    Thought I might share these pics seeing how lots of guys are doing or thinking of doing this lift option. 5100's all 4 Corners and a 2"AAL. Those are the only mods. Easy install 5 hours total thanks to the great sticky write ups. Chris4X4 I think is the write up guy.

    I just did this yesterday, so have yet to get it alignment, I can see with my eyes its gonna need it. As for Vibes.... I can kinda feel some at 10mph or so, but im sure once it all settles down and the alignment is done it will go away seeing how weak the vibes are now. The ride feels better than stock at the moment.. I made sure to pay attention to ride feel at stock right before I did the install and first thing I felt for was ride feel during first drive.. Felt good and less jarring IMO.

    Nice looking Taco! Love the stance.

    Did you have the rear TSB done previously or did you only have the non-TSB 3 leaf pack? I have the rear TSB done and I'm trying to decide if 2.5" on my 5100s will be even or if I'll be nose high.

    Looks good. I just did basically the same lift with the fronts at 2.5 and Icon progressive 3 leaf springs in the rear.

    Nice...IMHO, this is the way the trucks should come from the factory.

    What size are your Michelin AT2s? They look bigger than stock.

    Sorry for the noob question but what is TSB? I really like what youve done and im looking at getting the 5100 and am still settling on what i want for the rear (putting spindles up front). Truck looks good!
