    Also... these tire SUCK in wet weather and snow. Because of that, I wouldn't get them again. I put them on in December of 2012 and took a trip to Connecticut (live in south Florida). They were horrible in the snow... just slid around like they were bald. Prolly cause they are very wide... same reason for the rubbing at full lock. I have about 1/2 tread with just over 30,000 miles on them.

    I have my bilsteins set to 1.95 height. I heard the 2.25 puts too much stress on the bal joints so I set it lower.

    Can't tell you about the offset but I know with my setup, I had a little rubbing on full lock. If you set your to a little higher, you might be OK.

    As you know, I have the same size tire.

    Hi Jimmy,
    Looking at your setup and sounds like youd know the answer to my concerns. I just ordered the bilstein 5100's to lift 2.25' on my 2013 fx2 screw. Im looking to get the lrg 104s 20x9 0-offset with the nitto MT terra's at 305/55/20. Do you know if this would work without/ or minor rubbing? I see some people on here saying a 2" level will not clear 305/55/20's on an FX2. Thank you for your time.

    I love them. Truck rides stiffer but that's to be expected with these stiffer shocks.

    When I get another truck, I'll do the same thing for sure.

    Now that you've had the 5100s for a while, what do you think of them? How has the handling of the truck been since the level?

    Hey there, I was just wondering what size tire you upgraded to? And also what brand? They look to be either Toyo's or Nitto's?? Sweet looking truck!
