Rear Shock Length

I have a 2011 tacoma short bed with the OME Dakar leaf pack with 2.75 in of lift. They just came in and now I need to order the shocks for it. What is the best length shock to run with this?

I have the Old man EMU shocks on now. My leafs will be here 4-30 (they we on back order) when I put them on I'm going to measure the sag. The EMU shocks are a inch longer than stock shocks so I'll see when my leafs get here..... But I think a lot of people are going with 2 inch longer shocks...

I installed my leafs got 3", I would go with 2" longer or std length with the 3" shock spacer. I have the Dakar leafs and OEM shocks and I'm only 1 1/2" from the top of the travel.... I would like to be in the middle of the travel.
