2'' lift + billsteins + F-150 Load levelers

I'm looking at the possibility of a roof rack and metal bumpers in the near future, but this is how it sits:


06' Commander 5.7 Hemi limited

3.5'' Lift up front:

2'' rough country lift
+ Billstein 5100 series strut @1.5''

Part number for billsteins is 24-225793

2'' lift in the rear
Ford F-150 Load leveling rear shocks (2'' longer)

Part number: Monroe 58643 Sensa-Trac load adjusting shocks
THESE ARE SOLD IN PAIRS!!!


Small note on the rear shocks, they helped lift the car about 1'' in the rear when installed. This is could be the fact that they are longer Or my oem shocks were blown.

Goodyear wrangler MTR w/ kevlar 265/70/17
1.5'' Hub centric wheel spacers|


UPDATE 7/30/14 NOW WITH 33's

Looks good. Very similar setup to what I was running before swapping to OME + spacer up front... and soon to be 5100s + OME MD springs (then the SL).

Plan on ordering some UCA's soon (recommend JBA). My stock uppers didn't last long when at 3"...

Got some pics on flat ground?

Did you have any issues trying to install the bilstein 5100 struts or is it the same as replacing them with the 4600 ones? Also if you can can you take a side pic on a leveled surface that way I can get a better picture of how leveled the jeep looks. Thank you.

I never used the 4600 just oem. They slid into the clevis pretty easy. Lots of swearing getting the whole strut/spring/lift spacer back into place.

I can set them to the 2" setting and still be under the 22.5" from center hub to fender. I like the way it sits now, I don't think I'll change it.

Tomorrow I'll get you guys a bunch of pics from different angles

That's weird. All I have up front is OME HD coils and I'm exactly 22.5 inches from the center of the hub to the fender flares.
