noob lift and tow questions

hi i just got my taco and sorry about the noob questions. I was wondering if some people who tow with their tacos can chime in on this . i mainly use the taco as a dd but want to go off road maybe 5 times a year and tow a boat about 3500lb. about every weekend. i was looking at getting the ome kit but im not sure what rear kit to get. dont know if i need the extra Dakars or if add a leaf will work. i also dont know what the difference with reg leaf and tsb leaf? can someone clarify this for me thanks in advance.

Not sure about dakars......I've never ridden with them, but I think they offer 2 setups, 1 has an additional overload.

I had a deaver 1.5" aal.....the back end bucked when unloaded.

Now I have an icon progressive (3 leaf) aal and it rides smoother than the single aal....both setups paired with 5100s.

As for the tsb.......

Look under ur truck.......u prolly have 2 long leaves (slightly arched pieces of flat steel), and 1 shorter 1.

If u have 3 long ones and 1 shorter 1, then u have the tsb.
