Lift along with Dakars

I'm getting ready to lift the Taco but have a question about the Dakars in the rear. I'm planning on going up 3" in the front with the OME setup and after looking at my rear,it seems like just an AAL may not work. Looks like I have only 2 in the pack now and they are pretty flat,so if I replace those with the Dakar leaf pack,how much will that lift the rear? As the truck sits now,I'm down about 2" in the front. What I fear is that if I go up 3" in the front,that only puts me 1" higher than the rear and that's before the Dakars. I just dont want to put the Dakars on and those lift the rear even more and still end up with a rake. Thanks in advance!

rear lifts 2.75" I believe. It will have a slight rake but you won't really notice it.

BTW hi neighbor. I'm in Smiths too.

The truck will be close to at level (some rake) with the OME lift and Dakar's, if you put the top plate spacers on the struts to achieve the full 3" lift.

Howdy neighbor! I must say,I didn't expect to run into a Smiths resident here but nice to meet you. I can handle a slight rake,I just didn't want to be right back where I am now with a 2" difference after the new leaf pack.

I do plan on using the top plate spacers to get the full 3" lift up front. I eventually plan on doing the LR UCA replacement also.

OZ's thread should give you a good idea of what everyone ends up with the Dakars:

I have the Full OME w/ top plate spacer and the dakars and I sit pretty damn level, maybe a hair lower in the back, but I'm very pleased with the entire lift
