All-Pro Expo or Standard Leaf Pack

Hey fellers. Just wanted to know which of the two leaf packs that all-pro sells best suits me from your experience? It is going to be either their 3'' expedition leaf pack or just the standard. I do a fair bit off roading and generally have ~250lbs of gear in the truck at all times, which includes the canopy. But when I go for trips we're looking at an additional 150lbs of cargo. Is it worth is to get the Expedition pack? From those of you that have the Expo pack, is it a rough ride unloaded? And from those of you that have the standard leaf pack do you notice substantial sag on the ass end when loaded?

Also, rear shocks... I've got extended travel Icons up front, suggestions for rear? I was thinking Fox or Icon w/ remote reservoirs....

Thanks for your help guys

It sounds like you carry enough extra weight that it would be worth investing in the stronger springs

They're really not bad springs. I'd run 'em if I could buy 'em from someone other than All-Poo. They're made overseas and distributed here by AP. If I could get 'em direct from the supplier that'd be different.
