This is from what i've read so dont beat me up if im wrong. 99% of the shocks we use at work are kings.

5150's are gonna ride almost exactly the same as a 5125 but just be a little better on compression ans rebound with the piggyback reservoir. You'll only notice that on fast paced off roading like a trophy truck going thru whoops. 5160's are a few steps up in EVERY category. All great shocks but the 5150's dont seem to be worth it. Stay with an affordable good shock or go big with one of the best out there.

I've also seen those piggyback reservoirs leak a lot and even snap off

5125's all the around? That's what I am thinking.

Bad picture earlier. Here are some of the new parts coming. Head lights will be clear coated, and the tail lights will get a light tint with clear coat. I'm hoping with the clear coat I can make them look a lot better for a long time.

Sounds like a good choice. Pretty much the same as 5100's and im happy with mine. Now get em longer for massive droop! Mine are for like 6.5" of lift and they still tuck enough to rub the **** outta my fenders and they droop the top of the tire way below my rockers

I still don't have a front bumper. I was looking at getting the Iceland Offroad Winch front bumper and fender combo pack. Seems like a good option. I'm just not sure if that's the rout I want to go. Has anyone see any really nice front bumpers in the past 6 months?

Oh wow, that is a pretty big difference then! Was that the route you are thinking that you are going?

BTW those tail lights are awesome and I want some. Those are the only not like ricer eBay lights out there. Can not wait too see some pictures and the install process!
