    3" lift front and back
    just throwing in my 2 cent update on my junkyard pack. With my truck weighing in a hefty 3360 pounds I was getting beat up. I took a job 77 miles away and I just couldn't travel up I-5 one more day with this kind of abuse....so I removed the smaller of the two leafs and put my OL back in. Ended up with the same amount of lift and the ride is way better! the dips is what was killing me. The rear had no movement so the front was bouncing up and down afterwards and I was getting thrown off of my seat just enough to hurt my back. I'm sure if I had the extra weight of an extra cab and a v6 I wouldn't be talking about this but a regular cab 4 cylinder Prerunner is as light as a Civic!

    I was wondering what happened to you Terry, if you remember I mentioned to you that with the thickness of the Dodge springs you chose,you may be a little "over sprung", but you did what I would've done in the situation (removing 1 spring) getting the results you wanted, so its still a win IMO...;)

    Nice Nate! your truck is looking really good bro! Nice front bumper and congrats on the winch. Is that the Toytec ultimate lift w/adjustable coils?

    Hey, junkyard rebuilds ftw. A guy helped me a few weeks back do this. We removed one stock leaf, and added two from some other trucks he had taken apart. I got about a 2+ inch lift out of the deal.

    My AAL is about gone, looked at some 95 Nissan leafs but they didn't look much better than what I have in there now. :laughing: It sounds like I need to find some Ford Ranger or Chevrolet springs?
