So here's the deal. I am putting on a 3" lift. I am going with the Toytec AAL in the back. I do not have the TSB done (only 3 leafs in back). I realize that I will get 3" one of two ways with this set up. I could do the 2" AAL and not get the TSB done (Stay with 3 leafs) -- OR -- I could get the TSB done (4 leafs) and add the 1.5" AAL to get the 3" of lift. I realize either way will give 3" of lift. My question is, if I choose not the have the TSB done and stick with the longer 2" AAL, will I be sacrificing on how much weight I can carry in the bed?
In other words, If I were to load the back up with a few hundred pounds of camping gear and bikes, fill it with 4 guys and a tank of gas, will I be dragging ass with the 2" AAL and no TSB? Or would it be better to deal with Toyota hassle, get the TSB done, and add the 1.5" AAL? My concern with this is the rest of the time with nothing in the back, will I have to glue my butt to the seat when going over any bumps (Harsh Ride)?
I have a 2011 DC SB...I do not carry heavy loads, but I do occasionally pull a small boat in the summers. Is the 2" AAL sufficient? I was told the 2" AAL would give approx 200#/sqft.
I have searched for this and havent found a specific opinion...
