With the Hemi you will most likely want the HD coils.

Thanks for the feedback, was definitely leaning that direction. Just wanted to get opinions before pulling the trigger

Go with MD. See my SIG. I have been happy with my set up. Only difference would be the Rusty's spacer, which is a good option.

Perfect! You have any pictures of this beast?!

The only thing I would be concerned about is the extra weight of your CRD versus my Hemi.

Go to page 11 of this thread for pics. I have read that the hemi and crd are really close in weight. I am at 22" if the hemi is a little lighter I doubt you would be above 23". Should be perfect.

It looks great man, thanks for the pic! You should definitely look at getting the rear spacer in to top it off..

Did not know this. Actually thought it was the other way around. Thanks for the info.



Will all this being said, and seeing this image, think I will follow what fafafofi did, rather ditch the front spacer, and do HD coils instaed of MD

Thanks man. Spacer will be added when it warms up. Possibly switch out the springs or adjust them when I get my hidden winch mount installed.

As I've been looking through these posts it seems like most of you use the 5100 series with some sort of spacer or lift. I do have a question, and if it has been answered through here I apologize and please point me in the right direction..

I'm looking at just leveling out the front of the Jeep, not necessarily looking for a lift here. First of all, will the 5100's accomplish this, and if so, what setting would bring the front level with the rear. Currently no suspension modifications.

Yeah they will level it. At the lowest setting you get .75" and that's all you need to level it.

like bora said you could go with the .75" or from what ive seen you could also go 1.5" in the front and add a 4600 bilstein to the rear for a boost as well to level out with the 1.5" setting
