    Even after settling, you'll still hit max droop and contact the coil. UCAs are a must if running 5100s with Aftermarket coils. I have stock coils on mine, and I'm safe at the second from bottom notch. I can't go higher without UCAs. I'd definitely start doing your homework on this. Especially with a top hat spacer. There was another thread where someone was running 5100s on toytec coils I believe with spacers and it was causing his UCAs to contact the coils, which is no bueno. If yours are touching it's also no bueno. I'll be going SPC UCAs and OME 886 coils on down the line.

    I went with the 884 coils from @HeadStrong Off-Road so that I wouldn't need to replace the UCA's but I thought it was due to alignment issues at 3" or higher lift. I didn't think that they would hit the stock UCA at full drop. I have a buddy that did this kit with 885's and didn't have any issues. He had a shop install it though so maybe he just never knew..

    Ok, so about the same review I would give on the ST Maxx's. They're my favorite tire thus far, and it's going to take more than a "packed with technology" slogan from Falken to change my mind. I'm likely going with another set of ST Maxx's next but in 255/80/17's. I love the look and they perform better in my climate than the 265's (VT winters are no joke).

    I’ve had both - Falkens are a lot, lot smoother on-road. Better all-around tire in comparison to the ST Maxx. Not to mention how the Cooper pulls right terribely.

    Interesting take. I don't mind an A/T tire not being smooth, but the ST Maxx's actually aren't bad in that category either. Too bad none of my buddies have the Wildpeaks so I can compare the ride. And I never experienced the pulling, but others on here have.

    Edit: love your wheels. I'm getting the 17" FN FX model in gunmetal gray relatively soon.

    They’re awesome rims! Dustin is great to work with.

    I think I just came from a really smooth tire when I switched to the Coopers so I wasn’t used to it.

    Not always true. Depends on coil length. Typically springs under 390mm are fine.

    Would this contact be corrected after an alignment?

    I hear ya. One of my buddies has a 3rd gen limited wrapped in Michelin LTX's and it's a night and day difference compared to mine. It doesn't feel very truck-like at all. Not for me.

    Possibly but it seems like, if that was the case, that the current alignment would be so outta whack.
