Yesterday, I had a pair of Bilstein 5100 series "ride height adjustable" struts installed on the front. I am really pleased with the results. After 260K miles, the originals were pretty much done.

Question on rear ride height: I'm running Bilstein 5100's on front and rear at stock height. The rear will squat when fully loaded, family of 6 with top and rear cargo boxes. Does anyone recommend a rear spring to prevent the squat? OME 2862 REAR COIL SPRINGS? Would the 2" rear lift cause any issue with stock front height? Or is there a better stock height replacement for rear spring?

Air ride 1000... it'll lift it and make it feel so much more solid on the road when loaded... add air when loaded, remove when not... best of all worlds... I'm doing this now but with a 3k lbs trailer behind me...

256k the size of the vehicle overall dwarfs the lift and tires. It's got a lot of clearance with welded sliders.


Mainly our ski mobile and my daily driver. It's been up Poison Spider when stock. New lift, tires, sliders at end of last season. Have wheeled some front range CO terrain on prior 5100 lift. And 33s. More than adequate fir anything I'll ever do.

Only prob, need more power to pull 2200 trailer up the passes. Any suggestions? I know a guy with a machine shop that does a lot of motor work. Maybe bore it out a little and bigger cam wheel? I dont know what I'm saying exactly. Trying to recall my conversations with him. Maybe a supercharger? Exploring options, looking for suggestions.

All the rigs look great I just got a 04 sequoia limited 4x4 and thinking about getting a lift so I can fit 32’s on it and just wondering what all would be needed that I might be forgetting I plan on this being my set up

Bilstien 5100 with ARB 2885 in the front

1inch diff drop

ARB 60071 with ARB 2865 in the back

I plan on using the stock rim which is 17x7.5 to fit a Milestar Patagonia M/T 285/70/17 with a 1.25 spacer

Is this a decent set up is there anything else that I might not be thinking of that will be needed

Plan on posting pics when I get it finished

Go for the ARB OME 90004 instead of the 5100s. You will need spring isolators too. You might get a little bit more rake with the 2865/2885 combo, but it's nothing a small strut spacer won't fix. That setup will also be enough to fit 33s.

I finally ripped out the rear air suspension this weekend and installed OME 2862 springs with OME 60020L shocks. I've got Bilstein 5100s up front set on the 4th notch with factory springs (about 2.25" of lift). I knew my cranked up rear air suspension was rough... but I'd lost sight of just how bad it rode. The new setup rides like a dream. Couldn't be happier with how this turned out.

Was looking at these for my 80. How you like them? Those 35s? Any rub on the firewall?
The Geolandar M/T? They seem to ride and grip pretty well but I just got them so I haven't had a chance to try them out in snow or anything more than a dirt road. They are very quiet and the knobbies are huge so you really feel them at crawl speeds.

They're 315/75R16 (34.8x12.5). No rub on the firewall but the outer edge does tap the pinch welds at some degree near full steering lock. Broke my sledge before I could fully hammer the welds flat. I also had to trim the front bumper, and set my caster at the lower control arms to the max positive to move the wheels as far from the firewall as I could.

Your Tree is looking good.
