Wheeler's progressive vs Dakars

I'm lifting the front of my truck 1.75" to 2" (haven't decided yet), leeper coilovers.

I need to decide on the rear. Wheeler's progressive 3-leaf AAL is cheaper and raises the amount I really want (1.5"), but I'm afraid it won't ride that great.

The Dakar's are supposed to ride awesome, but they give 2.75" of lift, which is too much. I don't mind maintaining factory rake but I don't want to throw it off. I can remove the third leaf, but that's still 2"...

Thinking I'll do dakars - the third leaf, what do you guys think?

Also, just to be clear, the "third leaf" is the third leaf counting from the TOP or BOTTOM or the pack?

I already decided Dakar's, but, dude, this is not an answer to my question at all.

2.75 is based of the 3 leaf pack so if you have 4 lead packs then the lift will be about .5" less even less if you remove the 3rd leaf. I got about 1.75 over stock with my dakars 3rd leaf removed.

I do not have the TSB pack, so I think I'd see the full 2.75", 2"+ with third leaf out.
