    Yeah but the heavy duty is for a constant 660lb so ill never have that much weight back there

    and the medium duty supports 0 lbs, so will surely sag down with your current weight. 3/4"? Who really knows, so what if it sags more than that? Then you'll buy the overload leaf, spending more than if you had just ordered the HD's from the start. I still say buy once with the future in mind. If you ever decide to add a rear bumper, plus all of your bed weight, I don't think the medium pack would put you where you want to be. Its a $40 insurance basically, and could probably sell same day for $50 if you don't actually need it. Anyone else can feel free to chime in. I have zero actual experience with this; just going off of the research I've put in.

    correct. From what I understand, and I could be wrong, the HD is just a MD with an extra overload.
    This may still be wrong. But the moral of the story is remove one of the leafs (not sure which one), and the HD becomes a MD.

    I have no idea what the differences are, but back in my day, Dakar springs were just Dakar springs...and you could buy an overload as an addition, which is what I have.

    ftfy. I still have this setup. I have no idea what the actual weight is. I have the decked drawer system, bed rack, spare 35" tire, hi-lift jack, HC rear bumper.

    The HD Dakar pack is just the Medium Dakar pack with an extra overload leaf in it. It makes sense to buy the HD and take the extra overload leaf out. It's the second one up from the bottom.

    https://www.tacomaworld.com/threads/rear-ome-el095r-p-ome-extra-leaf-ome-heavy-springs.570289/

    @Brian422 here's a thread I found that should be helpful as actual part numbers are listed.
    OME EL095r is Medium pack
    OME EL096r is Heavy pack
    OME EL46XL-P seems to be the added leaf that differentiates the two. Buy the HD pack from the start and "maybe" remove the extra leaf for $30-40 more, or buy the MD pack from the start and "maybe" need to buy the extra leaf for $70.


    or go Dobinsons or Deaver and go a complete different route that I can't speak into lol

    I'm going with the Dobinsons setup when time comes. They look just like OME Nitrochargers, but Mike told me they are valved differently than the OMEs.

    The Dobinsons are valved a little softer than the OME and doesn't have that clicking sound on compression that the OME does. Plus they offer shocks where the coil seat sits a little higher on the shock, giving you an extra inch of lift. @tweakit88 runs Dobinsons and he is quite happy with them. The pricing is also great as well!
