Opinions on Wheeler's 3 leaf AAL

Anyone have this? Thoughts on it compared to a single AAL? I like the idea that it has progressive spring rates to maintain a soft(ish) ride untill the spring is under a heavier load.

I think you'll find that any leaf spring is progressive- The single AAL just change the feel from the stock pack a bit.
I'm installing mine sometime in the next month...but I'm excited about it. I'm still not sure if I'm going to remove the overload leaf or not. I'm thinking I'll leave it in there and see what happens.

i just installed mine. i took out a 2" block and the factory overload spring. it feel SO MUCH BETTER. i was amazed. i have not loaded up the bed too much yet so I'm not sure how the new springs will handle under load. I also installed a wheelers 1" block to make the truck level. BTW i also have the OME 182 that improved the feel as well.
