    If no front plate bumper planned , you could go full OME kit with 885's and Dakars .

    You could add the OME Dakar AAL , the d29xl , if you plan on sustained heavy loads

    x2 of the All Pro Expo leaf pack for the rear for heavy loads. How much you're looking to spend will dictate what you should do for the front but the OME kit is pretty tried and true.

    .
    I run the 2inch aal's with billie 5100 and firestone airbags, tough as nails, haul anything, the only thing i'm going to do is add straps to keep the airbags from being extended too far. I went an ran dunes up in oregon and had no problems, then turn around a throw 1000lbs of rock in the bed, pump up the airbags and go. I use the airbags to keep the truck level when there is no load. I'm pretty happy and it didn't cost me a new set of leafs.

    Basically for hauling , you just have to pick a strategy for the rear and get something to work up front with whatever you want for rake

    I blew out my rear 5100 there are better options ditch your springs and get dakars with one shocks or Allpro expos with icons or foxs
