    Wheelers has been absolutely incredible to me, with live help, shipping quotes, fast shipping and to CANADA! it's really hard to get parts up here, but I suggest anyone in canada go through wheelers, VERY good customer service and prices too!

    +99999999 rep for wheelers!

    I got my 5100's for all corners of my truck from Wheeler's, the boys there are helpful with what I need. I'm glad I picked them up before all went to backordered. Bummer for most of you who want them.

    Thinking about doing some buisness with them but heres a question if i get 5100's on all 4 corners and set the front to 2.5 and the rear to 3 inches what would be the best tire size for me, I'll run BFG A/T's no matter what.

    So it sounds like you want the rear higher? I'm not sure how bad it would be to stuff 285's on a 1st gen you might want to regear with that 3.4L

    yea accomidate's up to 3'' lift, you'll need an aal or new leaf pack to get the 3''.
    but if you want to sit level, or close to, you'll only want 1.5'' in the back

    Bump for Wheelers being one of the best all around Toyota after market suppliers!

    They were able to get me my missing bilstein install kit quicker than I expected. All of the parts I ordered have shipped to me with in 5 business days or the same week I ordered. It is very easy to do business with them since they have such great customer service.:bananadance::taco:

    Our replacment leaf spring group buy went down pretty well. We overwhelmed YotaDan with about 17 leaf pack replacements, and Alcan had to play catch-up. Of course, we all ended up getting a lot of other goodies, too, such as the extremely rare and spastically available Billie 5100s. Dan provided good service and shipped everything as soon as it was available from his suppliers. Most things showed up in just a day or two for me, but I am only 1 shipping day away from their shop. Some other folks farther way on the east coast had some delays mainly caused by the 5-pack Alcan backlog. When I decided I needed more stuff (OMEs and some bolts), they were here lickity-split. I think most folks were quite pleased.

    Thanks, Dan! :D

    Oh, by the way, I got some local shop quotes for OME 881s that were basically double what Wheeler's was asking...and they didn't even have them in stock, to boot.
