Should I raise the front end to 0.85" on the 5100's and toytec springs?

    Keep in mind I have a bumper and winch up front that weighs roughly 125lbs.

    Which toytec springs did you go with? I am wondering the same thing with mine. I went with the toytec springs that are supposed to give you a 2.5" lift on the first notch but I got no where near that with a allpro bumper on. Thinking about bumping them up to the second notch but don't know if it will be bad with the springs I went with. I know it's fine with the 1.6" springs

    I'd leave it. You don't want to go bro, and blind oncoming traffic, when hauling stuff in the bed. Those springs must be beefy, it looks stock until you realize what's up front. Trying to decide on doing the same or full bumper. I'd follow your lead if hitting wildlife at highway speeds wasn't a normal part of life here.

    Good lookin' truck

    Parking your truck on an angled incline, in grass, is not going to give a good representation of how your truck sits.

    So how could anyone make a suggestion, based on not seeing the actually "stance" of your truck on flat ground (asphalt or concrete)...?

    How much higher is the rear of the truck compared to the front the way it sits now ?
    Do you have Eibach springs from Toytec ? I think a load in the bed might put you nose high.
    I have mine set at zero with Eibach springs & HD General Springs in the rear. I still have 2 " of rake front to back.

    I did not get the 3" springs, but they still give you lift without adjusting the 5100's.

    Thanks, it took a while for me to get it like that. John Deere X748 with roller striping kit on a 60" deck.

    Yea, that Jack*ss

    Thanks, I am starting to think the same.

    CVs look fine to me.

    Yea, sorry, that is the only pic I had on my PC.

    The back is maybe 0.5" higher. They are the Eibach springs from toytec.

    Thanks
    Jon
