Yeah, I had to explain the concept of the 5100's to the shop that put mine on and they were a 4x4 tire and wheel shop! Dude looked at me like I was humping a football on his counter, lol. Must not have been too difficult though because they got it right. It rode good too!

yeah after I got the spring on the new strut before installing it, I was flabbergasted that I couldn't see how in the hell it leveled my truck. then i realized it compresses the spring more so there is less spring travel/compression from the weight of the truck. DUH

well i got them installed today while i was at work... ive got to say it looks great on the highest setting, and they ride awesome.. big improvement over the stock ones. the guy that installed them told me he thought it would ride rough because he had to compress the spring so much. but they are awesome! now i want to do the back ones just to have bilsteins all around. everythings falling into place my tires came in yesterday too. heres a pic of before and after bilsteins, and then my new tires 295/65/20 and will be going on stock wheels next week some time(getting my wisdom teeth out tomorrow.

looks good! u have the same year/color truck as me! good taste I personally think my truck rides more rough at the max setting. but I'm glad you like your ride!

did u take your air dam off in that second pic?? you tryna be just like me?!!! hahaha I like Mine without it. I broke it off wheeling though. and funny that u have chrome handles and black door moldings, mine was opposite. but I plasti dipped my moldings to match the door handles
