    Hello all,

    I'm new to the forum, and I'm sure this has been asked a bunch of times. I looked around the forum a little, and gathered some good info. I live in Nashville, TN, and have a 2006 TRD access cab. I would like to beef up the truck a bit, but mainly use it as a DD, and some medium off road. I am planning on putting on some BFG all terrains, and was wondering about a decent shock. I keep seeing Bilstein 5100's come up. It that the best way to go? If so, what setting should they be on for my usage. I might beef it up futher down the road, so any suggestions would be great. As far as the budget part, I guess when I figure out how much everything is, that will decide the budget.

    Thanks!
