After many hours of careful reading I thought I knew exactly what I wanted but after a visit to Four Wheel Parts in Riverside, and the salesguy's phonecall to ARB, I am back to research.
What I want: 2-3" lift, leveling, 32" tires likely on stock rims, spare to match and it must fit in original location without rubbing. My goal was a combined 4-5" lift from suspension and larger tires.
What I thought would work:
OME front coilovers with light coils (no intent on adding heavy bumper or winch)
OME Dakar leaf pack
Either TC or Toytec UCAs
BFG ATs in either 285/70R16 or 285/75R16
However, according to the salesguy and ARB, this kit will raise the front 1.75" and the rear 2.75", adding 1" to the stock rake. ARB had no solution for leveling. It would seem to me that most people willing to install a replacement leaf pack would also want the rig level.
I thought that numerous folk here had installed essentially what I outline above and ended up with a level rig. So what am I missing? With the basic plan I am pursuing, what are my options for ending up with a level truck? Or should I look in a different direction?
