    Bilstein 5100's all corners, AVS aero skin bug shield , Avs ventvisors, Husky x-act fit liners, Extang Trifecta signature series bed cover, TRD shift knob, TRD cup holder inserts, Front eyebrow LED lights with toggle kill switch.
    I am installing 5100's on all four corners probably next week. Would going on top setting possibly give me any type of problems down the road? Or is there anything else I may need to prevent such problems. I just drive on the road mostly. I'll be driving on stock wheels and tires as well until the next purchase. I'm hoping I won't have to do anything else and the ride is good. If anyone could chime in that would be great. Thanks

    Top setting I believe is +2.5 or 2.8. You will be fine. might be a little stiffer ride than lower settings. If you go above 3" lift you should add new upper control arms to help bring alignment close to stock.
