I was tired of looking like a soccer mom. So I added some Bilstein 5100 shocks, 18X9 Ultra 109SB wheels and 33” Falken WildPeak A/T3W tires.
I couldn’t have said it any better myself. It definitely ticks all the boxes.I hear yah on the "truck" word. It is really the same as a Tundra, just more soccer mom friendly. Regardless of what people say, I like the versatilty of being able to haul lots of gear, or carry lots of people.
Thanks! The 5100s have three different height settings in the front and no lift in the rear. The rears do provide 2" of additional travel though allowing you to run a rear spring spacer. At the time i just had it at the lowest setting and now im at the top setting about 2.5" of lift and i used a proline 2" rear spacer giving about 2.75" of lift. I will post updated pics soon.I love the look of your tree! Do the 5100s provide a lift?
@2GSeq Your truck looks great! I have a similar setup on my limited with aftermarket Black Rhino 20" wheels. I would be curious if you can comment on how the ride is with the 5100's? Both at the low height like you have pictured here and if you realized a ride difference when you maxed out the 5100's? It seems like most really like them with some occasional comments that they can be quite firm / harsh when hitting pot holes, etc (compared to stock) ...? Any input you could provide would be great!!
