    6 inch ProComp lift, Eibach coils on 5100 Bilsteins at zero, 1/4 inch Toytec spacer on drivers side, rear TSB, 1.5 inch Deaver AAL, ProComp blocks and rear shocks, 8000 lb Warn winch on a Trans4mer grill guard, 33 inch BFG AT's, 18x9 XD Monsters, PIAA headlights, PIAA driving lights, Pyro's blue LED gauges, LED strip below tailgate, Armor Lid hard tonno, Hidden Hitch, Dee Zee bed mat, Tint, XM, Garmin GPS, Ultra Gauge
    I have Bilstein 5100's up front with Eibach coils and I really like the ride. Roads are shit around here too and they helped a lot. I probably didn't need to change the coils but they help with the weight of the winch. You can also adjust the spring perch on the shocks to level your truck. I still have the stock TRD shocks in the rear. I would put Bilsteins back there too but I'm looking into a six inch kit and I'll need longer shocks then anyway.

    for roughest roads, offroading and smoothest ride coilovers would be your best bet, i honestly didnt feel any difference with the 5100s and stock but then again i offroad pretty hard, so im happy with my coilovers:cool: seems like 5100s would do you just fine

    Oh okay. Yeah I would say some 5100's that way in the future if you do want to lift, youll already be set to go up front then just add some AAL's in the rear to level it out.
