looking forward to those fender to hub measurements....

it really shows how bad the factory rake is if you leveled her out with 1.5" and nothing but bilsteins in the rear

Forgot about this. How do you want the measurements performed? From where to where? Busy right now, but I'll try to get them to you.

These measurements probably aren't exact, but I got around 20" in the front and 19.75" in the rear. Hope that this is helpful.

Here's the 5100s set at 2" just put them on yesterday - also put the 5100s on the rear. Hub to fender measurements are 21 1/4 front, 19 7/8 rear. Still have the stock 245/65s on for now but will be slapping 265/70s on soon. I like the way it sits, probably too high in the front for most but I'm a so cal guy growing up with Baja prerunners so it fits me well. The ride is an insane improvement over stock, I feel like I'm on rails - would highly recommend.

Do you also have the CRD? If not what engine do you have?

I would think a narrowish tire would look better for the prerun look.

Do you have these same seats? I have no clue how to get that light leather clean. The Mr Clean Eraser took care of the steering wheel, but scrubbing the seats with soap and water does no good.

Also, looking forward to the results of the 2" front. Those tires may be too big and you may need the pinch weld mod. Keep us updated.

as for the seats- have you tried like the lexol leather cleaner/conditioner? it comes it two different bottles.

I just have a plain bottle of ArmorAll brand leather cleaner/protectant. It's served me well with all the leather I've had. I do know there are better products out there.

A microfiber rag wetted slightly with the product and good scrubbing should clean it up well. Does wonders on the steering wheel leather as well.

How have the bilsteins held up for you so far, Marcram? Curious as to how much, if any, settling you encountered with the 4600's in the rear? Thanks.
