    Stay stock. If you want a slightly smoother ride, you can lower tire pressure a bit at the expense of mileage.

    Your ride will never be smooth. It's a truck.

    Plus, set them at 0.85 and you will clear 265/75's without rubbing at turn.

    265's will fit on stock setup without any lift. I know someone already said it, but wanted to repeat to make sure you read it.

    That's what was thinking on doing to replace the shock for 5100's and lift a little , but I want it to know if its worth the money.

    I wouldn't think it would be worth the money, but that's just me. Also depends on any future plans. If you plan on modifying further later, then do it.
