'14 Crewmax with 5100's & 285/70/R18

Just finished my upgrade this past week. 5100's on all 4 corners at top setting, 1 shim each side, Coachbuilder +3" shackles and BFG MT 285/70/18's

Had the springs compressed and new shocks put in on last Wednesday, installed the struts and shackles Thursday night after work, new tires and alignment on Friday and then headed to Moab for 4 days with the family! Can't believe how much better it rode, even the wife noticed it was much improved.

Thanks to David at Ekstrom Design for getting me the shackles pretty much overnight. I live on the opposite end of the state and he was waiting on the poly bushings and scrounged a set for me. Do yourself a favor and buy them, crazy improvement over stock.

Needs a minor trimming on the skid plate but clears the front mud flap and stock a-arms nicely.

I didn't measure the rear before but the front was 36" floor to fender drivers side and 36 1/4" on passenger. Finished it's 40 1/4" driver and 40 1/2" passenger in front and 42" rear

Thanks! We tow a boat quite often during the summer and wanted to retain the rake. It actually looks almost level when on flat ground.
