    Just orded a lift for my 06 Double Cab Long Box..... I got 5100's for the front... planning on setting them at 2.5" . I also got the ToyTec 2" Add-a-leaf... Is this too much for the rear?? Does anyone have this set up in their truck?? Just second guessing what i ordered... i dont want it too look dumb... pics would be a big help. I'm running 265/70R17 Mud Terrains...

    I did a 2.5'' lift and got a 1.5'' aal and it sagged so my front is taller.....i think the 2'' aal will look more level once it sets and sags like AAL do.....thats prob what you want i would imagine
