    Guys,

    Going to be dropping some cash on my 2011 DC/LB and wanted your feedback to ensure I get it right the first time.

    What I am after: 2.5-3" of lift with a level rake. I will have a LEER cap on the bed permanently.

    My Plan:

    Front - Bilstein 5100s with OME 885 coils set at "0"
    Light Racing UCA's

    Rear - Bilstein 5100s with a Wheelers 2" single AAL

    Wheels - 17x9 KMC XD Addicts (-12) with 265/70/17 Nitto Terra Grapplers

    Budget for the lift is between 500-600.00

    Please let me know what you think, I appreciate the feedback.

    Jim

    Some stuff. Not a lot, just some.
    You may want to add a 13mm trim packer because the 885 is only around 2" of lift. The packer will add 3/4 - 7/8" inches.

    Light bar and bumper guard, 3/16 steel skid plates for engine, tranny and transfer box, OME 881 springs with 5100 shocks at mid clip. AAL in rear. Positraction rear diff.
    On the Wheeler Off Road site it says a 885 spring provides 1.75 inches of lift. The 2 inch AAL in the bad more than cancels that out. You'll need to raise the 5100s in the front.

    It says 2" on the Toytec site. Those are definitely ballpark figures.
