However all other handling characteristics are phenomenal for daily driving and moderate off road. I will buy a more suitable shock when the 5100's wear out. No signs yet of wear at 40k miles. If you've got a bull bar and lighter V6 I'd go with 885's
Keep in mind this is a quality cost effective fix. If you've got money to burn go get coilovers.
My 2 cents.
I donít come from diesel trucks, just comparing my truck to before and after lift.

Ok so the OME 885ís with the 5100ís would be a step up for rigidity? Donít have money to burn right now unfortunately for Coilovers but will look into the 885Ēs. would I be better off with a longer travel strut too or will the 5100ís be just fine with the V6 and the WOT youíre talking about?
