So I've searched quite a bit and have hopefully narrowed my questions to a few specific ones.
Background for Questions:
I will be putting a full suspension lift kit on a 2014 DC. Up front, I will have a CBI Moab bumper + Warn M8000-s winch( So say 160 pounds). In back, a cab-height Leer topper (Say 200 pounds). I will be rolling on 265/75r16 duratracs. I want to avoid rake if possible. I occasionally pull a 5x10 utility trailer or pop-up. I drive Very (with a capital V) rough Colorado forest service roads summer and fall, but I don't drive "trails." I take the offroading slowly, and I'm in 4-Low quite a bit.
What I Know:
I have decided on toytec's ultimate lift kit with radflo front coil-overs. Extended travel, heavier (650#) coils, and Light Racing UCA's. The kit comes with the toytec 2" add-a-leafs.
The Two Main Questions:
#1: Considering the topper, should I upgrade to the Dakar Leaf Pac? I'd like to keep the ride softer if possible, but I'll be setting my front coils to 2.5" or so.
#2: Given the information above, is there a good reason to spring for (ha!) the 2.5" shock body instead of the standard 2"? I'd like to avoid this if possible, and save the $210.
Thanks for taking the time to respond to yet another suspension thread.
Oh-and I'll definitely post pics of the process!
