    I’m looking for some advice on lifts. Looking to do a simple lift using bilstein 5100 front and rear. Thinking of also purchasing a Eibach rear coil of 1-1.5”. I don’t want any type of rake. What would be a good set up including the rear coils not to get a any rake? 1.75 or 2.5? Thanks for any suggestions and pictures showing your set up.

    If you want to stay with a 1”-1.5” rear coil your options will be limited, to my knowledge I only know of eibach and bilstein making smaller coils. I’m sure there’s more but your options are smaller. I think eibach sells a 2/1 kit which levels you out. I have no experience with eibach but it gets a lot of good feedback on this forum. I’m leveled with a 3/2 lift. So I get 3 inches in the front and 2 in the rear. Whatever you do in the rear you’ll want to lift the front end by 1 inch more to be level.

    This is the Eibach stage 1 with 275 KO2. It is rather level. I would recommend new UCAs (I went with JBA and they’re awesome) for the front end to help with alignment.
    And not to hijack your thread, @Mtbpsych what fog lights are you running? Brand and color. Thanks

    @Mtbpsych thanks, I ordered LED bulbs off of Amazon awhile back, they were supposed to be amber, but are yellow. For the $15 they’re bright and look decent. Just looking for a good set of true amber lights

    Yeah these are amber with a mix of hyper yellow, and they’re BRIGHT. They’re great for a quick night trail run.

    @Mtbpsych Thanks for you reply. Your truck looks awesome. Between the Bilstein and the Eibach systems, which would you recommend?

    I don’t have eibach so I can’t say, but I’m happy with the bilsteins. I have the 5100’s uo front and I have Fox 2.0 shocks in the rear, they have a little more travel than the 5100’s and weren’t much more so that’s why I opted for them instead. I’m super happy with it, does great on the paved roads and off road!

    Mine is a pro so different but I have seen some BP51 and OME lifts at the dealer I go to and find them to be a fantastic stance. I have not driven it so can’t say more than looks but if I didn’t want some of the other pro stuff this would have been my set up I think.
