    Yes, you can do a couple inches. Lots of threads about this setup.

    It's a good option but keep in mind you will have to do some trimming and a CMC if you plan to go off-road. UCAs might also be needed depending on how high you go in front.

    This will be the same for any setup you run on these trucks.

    Checked out Headstrong and Wheelers... great packages, but I'm only looking for the shocks and coils at this time. Going to be running stock height for now (still on stock wheels and tires).

    These two sites had the best prices (not assembled). Free shipping and no tax at both sites.

    i'm about to pull the trigger on this setup myself, marie at headstrong has been awesome and answered my questions promptly and clearly. will probably order in the next day or two, i'm also getting new leaf pack. i didn't shop around too much as i'm happy with the customer service so far so maybe it's not the cheapest but i'm ok with that

    I keep hearing good things about them, so I will definitely consult them in the future if I need an expert opinion. I agree, good customer service can be worth a slightly higher cost. :thumbsup:

    Maybe I should have asked them to price match, though. Oh well. Have fun! :D

    I just ordered a set of 6112 5160 assembled from headstrong last week. 1,186 out the door. Set on the 3/4 I’m just looking for an inch or so upfront. Should be here this week

    Working on it ...
    This is pretty much the exact set up I have been considering on my ‘19 Sport. Just looking for a bit more lift and a little bit of rake as I do put stuff in the back too, ie dirt, etc.

    Post some pictures when you get this installed and let us (me) Know how it goes and if it met your expectations.

    Lastly, for me my truck is also my daily driver so I’d be curious as to if it has any effects on your gas mileage.

    I will for sure. In my experience lift has little to do with MPG but tires and weight of them is everything. I just put the 4Runner pro wheels on last week with 265/70/17 bfg ko2 in a “C” rated. I just ran to Portland and back yesterday about 260 mile trip and got 17 average. My truck is a 6sp.

    I’ll get pics up once the suspension is on. But I feel it will be perfect for my needs.

    So I ended up putting in my order with Headstrong yesterday at 2pm MST and just got an email from UPS showing that three boxes are being delivered already today, and one on Friday. I'm not sure how that is possible but I'm stoked that the turnaround is so fast.

    Billies.jpg FYI - if you live where the salt/brine. Coat those 6112/5160's with something like Sharkhide. Mine looked 20yrs old after a one i winter. I wash truck min 3 times a week in winter. No finish left on rears. Need to pull them off in spring and get them painted/cerakote/?

    They look similar to these 5100's. (not mine)
