    Purchased a spare set of headlights. Retrofit is underway.

    Tint completed this week. 20% in back, 30% in front. Pics after everything was cleaned up. Kinda wished I had gone darker (but would be illegal) on the front.

    Finally, changed my mind on the suspension, primarily for $ reasons and I won't be doing a whole lot of offroading. Going with 5100s all the way around for now. Front will be at the top setting (2.5"). Possibly a Coachbuilder +1 or +2 shackle in the rear. Hope to get this installed during Spring Break this week.

    Interested to hear your feedback on how the ride compares to the stock Platinum suspension. I was thinking about going with 6112's in front, but since I don't do much off roading, now re-thinking about going with the 5100's up front on the middle setting to level out some while leaving a little rake. I want to go with the SCS SR8 wheels when they become available in late April or so.

    Did you install the morimoto fog lights? If so, how easy is the wiring?

    It's plug and play. You just have to insert the connectors into the supplied plug on the fog light end.

    5100s installed this week. Rides great. It is stiffer, but in a good way. Feels more solid. Definitely not a loss of comfort. It seems perfectly level. When driving, I can see how it may seem a little nose high, just because the truck may rock back a little. Will probably add a shackle in the rear to add a slight rake.

    @hdfanatic Looks good. Did you put the 5100s on middle or top setting? Also, are your tires 275/70s or 275/65s? Thanks.

    @hdfanatic. Looks great and good to hear the ride is more solid while still comfortable. I think I am going the same route with 5100s all around. Will have fronts set on middle and leave the rears the same as stock which should get me a mild level with less rake and look better than stock.

    Sounds like a plan. You won't be disappointed. I went ahead and ordered the Toytec adjustable shackle and poly bushings today to re-add some rake to the rear.

    Thanks @hdfanatic. I may go a similar route with 5100s at some point, still trying to decide on mid or top setting.
