    TSB in rear, 5100 in front, Limo tint all the way around, 50% tint on windshield, Grillcraft grille, 4 Hella 500 lights mounted behind grille, XDI intake, URD short shifter
    I plan on ordering some Billy 5100 shocks for the front and I just got the tsb done in the rear and it seems to have lifted it a little bit.

    What setting do you guys recommend setting the front shocks too?

    Also will I have any problem running

    285/70/17 or 285/75/17 nitto terra grapplers?

    if I can run either of those size tires which size do you guys recommend.

    Unless your wheels have a 4.5" backspacing, you'll be stuck running 265/75/16 or 265/70/17

    you can fit a 285, you will just have to trim a lot out of the front. I trimmed a lot and it is barely noticeable, It almost looks better except where I had to trim the fender flare, but even it is impossible to notice unless you really look.

    the size of your tires would be dependent upon what size rims, backspacing, and offset. i'm running 17x9, 4.53"bs, -12 offset with 285/70/17 (pics will be up later today) on Nittos TG and had to do some trimming. this is with billies set @ 2.5 with the 1.5" aal in the rear.
