rear shocks

I just bought a 3" Revtek lift for my 01 Tacoma. I bought it from a buddy and it didn't come with rear shocks. Any advice on rear shocks? Skyjacker vs. Bilstein vs. Rancho? I have a heavy canopy and often tow a small ski boat and haul loads of firewood....how much stiffness can I expect from a light duty add-a-leaf?

And your wanting to put in a AAL? it's not going to be that much stiffer.

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

The bilstien 5100 shocks are good shocks for the rear And are much better than the rancho or the skyjacker shocks
