    I was referring to the specific size of 275/70-16. I didn't see that size available before, but now I do. :)

    265/75-16 on stock OR wheels, with stock OR suspension = no rubbing under any circumstances.

    Iirc, there's a little less than an inch of clearance to my aftermarket mud flap when at full lock, sitting still. Do a search for 275 series and see what others have found, but 265 is the safe bet with OEM wheels and suspension.

    Did you check to make sure the brick was still on the gas pedal? Sometimes mine slides off.

    I've been reading for days and I am pretty sure it'll work but I wanted to ask just to be sure when money is involved. I've got a 2008 AC sport. I've got a new set of 5100's in my garage but I'd like to make the truck as functional as possible as far as suspension travel goes, or at least keep all of my stock travel. So, will I gain anything with a set of OME 884's with the 5100's? I've read several times its fine to run this set up with the shocks set at 0. One of my worries is needing UCA's and I don't want that if I can stay stock on those. I'd like to run 265/70/17 or 265/75/17 if I can do it. I know I can run those sizes stock I'm just worried about getting my alignment in spec.

    Also I pull a camper on occasion so ill need to keep a little rake in the rear. My truck has the stock 3 leaf pack on it. 1.5 AAL?

    Will I need a front diff drop for the cv angles with this set up I'm talking about? Longer brake lines? All my lift/bigger tire knowledge is late 70's ford trucks so this is a whole new world. Any help or advice with be appreciated.

    Thanks y'all.

    You don't need rake brother, you need rear springs that don't suck. Install Dakars and longer billies in the rear, and 884s in the front with the 5100s you have.

    The Dakars are designed for overlanding, they can take the weight and are exceptional springs.

    I should have posted before I got the new 5100's. They showed up Friday and the rears are the "0-1.5" shocks. I may run a AAL set up for a bit since I cant throw another $400+ at new leaf packs right now. Or I may wait till I get all the parts to do it right and then do the install.

    Any input on this set up and UCA's? I want to avoid new UCA's at all costs since from what I've seen they are mighty proud of those things.

    Thanks for the reply

    There's nothing wrong with running your 5100's set to 0 with the OME springs up front, and a lot of guys are running that setup with great success.

    As long as you keep the lift 3" or less you won't need UCAs. Running around 2" of lift will let you install a true 32" tire with minimal to no rubbing.

    You can always sell the rear addaleafs and shocks as new in box here on TW, recoup the money, and work on getting your dakars and longer billies for the rear. When you've got everything you can take a day for the install and presto-blamo!

    Or you can run the addaleafs and billies you have for now and save up for the upgrade later. Then sell the old stuff on TW.

    Thank you sir!! This has been a real learning experience to say the least. Lifting my old solid axle fords was cheap and easy. Little more to these trucks ha ha.

    Thanks again.
