    In case we find ourselves starting to believe all the anti-American sentiment and negativity, we should remember England 's Prime Minister Tony Blair's words during a recent interview. When asked by one of his Parliament members why he believes so much in America , he said:
    "A simple way to take measure of a country is to look at how many want in... And how many want out." Only two defining forces have ever offered to die for you:
    1. Jesus Christ
    2. The American G. I.
    One died for your soul, the other for your freedom.

    Awesome! :waytogo: :)

    I looked into shocks too a while back and pretty much most all recommendations were for the Bilsteins, but I just never got around to getting/doing them. They are definitely what I am going to get whenever I do get around to it though!

    I think I have the part numbers around here somewhere...

    Yep Bilsteins are the way to go for me. I have em and they are fantastic. Only have about 10k on them. My truck handles much better with these then the stock shocks I took off. You will be happy with them.

    Im also running with the 5100's (duals up front) and have no complaints about how they ride, the only thing is I wish I hadn't been such a cheap a$$ and thrown down for the 7100's because I have noticed that they heat up a little bit when I go to the desert, but as I said before... not complaining
