All-Pro EXPO or OME DAKAR ?
 
I have a 2006 Tacoma. I wanna make it into a Expedition tipe vehicle. I'm gonna have a rear bumper with 3 gas cans a spare tire . Wich of this two will give me more hight and less sagging ?
I'm changing the question for soldiers: If you had to take your tacoma to war ,somewhere where's no roads , for longer period of time with all the gear that you need(spare tire,gas,food, ammo, tools etc...) wich leaf pack will you choose?
ALL-Pro EXPO

Expo for your said needs. 4" of lift and more weight capacity in the expos.

I wanna see if the vendor will say something. What's there opinion? In the paper Expo sounds good, but some people swears by Dakar.

You'll want to get the OME AAL , the d29xl , if you go with the Dakars

I didn't know you can do that. I was thinking of adding a 1.5" block or something like that. BUt the AAL sounds better.

This is his post in my Dakar Measurement thread



OK so, just installed yesterday.

OME Dakar with D29XL add-a-leaf. Between bed mat, hi-lift, spare tire, bed rack, gas tank skid, and rear bumper, the ass end of my truck has about a 200lb. constant load. Hence the add a leaf.

Hub to Fender:
Driver: 25.25in
Passenger: 25in

Ground to Fender (33in tire):
Driver: 41.25in
Passenger: 41in

Bear in mind, this is the day after install. They're going to settle some, but I expect a final height around 40.xx in from the ground, 24.xx in hub to fender.
