Great looking Jeep!

I read earlier in the thread you didn't go with Bilsteins in the front because it would put to much stress on the front components...
What would be in stress? Why would Bilsteins cause the stress?
Thanks

Same as I was thinking about that setup with one springs and 5100 shocks and mll (f-150) out back. I know that lifting past a certain point strains the front end components but I didn't think that the ome hd coils plus the 5100s would put the height past that point as several people have done it. I could be completely wrong though... Enlighten me!

Well I got much more lift out of the OME HD springs than I anticipated (probably because of my 3.7 and since I don't have a brush guard/matrix up front). My front hub to fender is 22.5" which is what you don't want to exceed without something that addresses the angles like the Superlift. As you can see in the pictures, I have around a .25" rake even with the additional 1.5" spacer in the rear, which in my opinion looks just right considering the way our wheel wells are cut (the front is cut higher).

I've got the 5100 and OME HD all around, with the ARB bumper, winch, and CRD (likely the heaviest front end you will see), and the first measurement from center of the hub to fender was 23"... I was a little worried!! It seems to have settled out to right around 22.5 and almost feels nose high (I think the back measured 21.5... I was less worried about that one lol), but I was running with the bumper and winch for 3 years on stock suspension, so it's a big difference. I think BoraBora made the right call for his setup.

Yeah I hear you on the wheel wells. I like the look of the more level stance though (don't get me wrong, your truck looks really good!!) what do you have in the front and back (shock/strut wise)?

Thanks man! I'm running the stock front struts and the Bilstein 5100s in the rear. Certainly not the best ride compared to having new struts up front, but whenever I have to replace my front balljoints/upper control arms I'll probably have them put in new struts too.

Do you plan on having them put oem or aftermarket struts when they need replacing?

I'll probably just put OEM ones in. Pretty big price difference between them and the OME ones. They're the same length too.

Also just to get an idea about the stance without the 5100's/to see how much lift I obtained from the springs...here's another picture from when I got lunch hahah


As you can see I didn't need the additional boost from the 5100's in the front, even with the stacked spacer in the rear.
