    Hello OP. If I was in you situation, and you want the rear to be higher than the front, I would go either alcan or deaver leaf pack. Dont worry about blocks. You dont want those. I am not sure if you get a pack of OME Dakars and AAL to it if it would sit you high or not. If it does, go that route.:D Good Luck with your choice

    get the all pro expo leaf pack. it’s made for a 3” lift and from what i under stand it will sit level WHEN you have 400 to 500 pounds in the bed so when you don’t have anything(or less than 400#) it should sit higher in the back, but i’m not 100% sure. maybe call them and ask if it sits higher than 3” when the bed is unloaded.

    Thanks for the info im gona look into leaf paks ! i do alot of hunting and camping so to be able to put more weight in bed with out saggin would be good ! im just hoping to try and keep good ride the pro runners added and in a week or two put some 33s on it either general grabber at2s or bf all terrain tkos ! size 285/70/17 i belive is =33x11.50 size tire! so ill try and post piks soon ! if i go with leaf paks 3". or 2" aal ! u think i would need angled shims or carrier bearing drop kit to get drive shaft in rite angle to compisate rear lift ?or shock mount extenders ?

    no prob! and the drive shaft shims or carrier bearing drop, may or may not be needed. pretty sure some guys have not had problems like some have. and the shocks you get should be adjustable and or just longer if they are set/ made for a 3” lift. i know the 6” lifted guys don’t have mount extenders, that shocks them selfless are longer.
