Ok so the 4600 are stock length. I thought I read somewhere that they were slightly longer. Hmm ok. Thanks for all your help/reponses!!!

This is the setup I am looking to run 285's. Haven't seen too much feedback, at least long term and am looking for any opinions out there.

5100 Blisteins Ride Height Adj @ 0.75" Setting for front
5100 Blisteins for rear
OME Coils (HD or MD?)
Rustys rear 1.5" spacer for rear

I do have the Hemi and have plans for armor/winch in the future. My main concern is eeking too much height out of the front and exceeding the 23" hub-fender measurement. Any opinions on this setup?

Is this considered a modified OME lift?
And what are the Rusty's rear 1.5" spacers (are they suspension or wheel spacers)?
Also, do the 5100s ride firmer than the 4600s or is the only diff a little length, and adjustability?

Yes that is a form of a modified ome lift. It's exactly what I hope to run too. The rustys spacer is a coil spacer in the rear to lift the rear for the extra boost the 5100s give

X2, think this is the way to go, with the assumption that the hub-fender stays under 23". Just don't know whether to go HD or MD on the coils. Hoping someone out there has some feedback on that.
