    I’ll be installing medium Dakar’s with 5160’s at the same time. Any idea on your fender to hub with the 4th setting after settling? Contemplating dropping them down now before install. I definitely don’t want to be nose high.

    The fourth setting was a great height for me......and I think with the medium dakars, it would be a great match for you as well. I think that the 3rd might give you too much rake with the dakars. It would be more for a AAL. The 5th setting is most likely going to level your truck.

    Good chance I may have the shop drop them to 4. My Dakar’s are both “-“ as well so may get 1/4 less than spec. Was your 3/4 inch rake with an empty bed?

    If you can work on your own truck. It takes like 3 hours to adjust both fronts with little tools.

    They aren’t installed yet. Still in the garage currently. I don’t have all the needed tools but do have access to them. Just trying to get it right the first time.

    Awesome what setting do you have this at and how much lift did you get.
    What leaf are you running?

    I have an icon extended travel w 700lb coils and looking to go another route cause I don’t have time to rebuild them so this is a possibility.

    I have sos aluminum bumper, steel- all skids, sliders and rear bumper and winch with Dakar leaf pack.

    trying to get 2.75-3” of lift like I have now.

    Lift; I think max is 2.5 on the 3rd gens. Currently on slot 6, but play with preload often. 700lb coils, really needs 650 though. Pulling swaybar.
    Tires, 285/75R17, 34s.
    Rear is All Dogs Offroad leafs in HD config. Have a lot of weight in the rear with the decked and stuff.
    1 Good 5160 1 Blow 5160 in the rear.

    Making a trip then revamping suspension, either Accutuned Fox or Radflo's.

    I have 6112's on the 4th setting with bilstein 650 lb coils in front with 5160's and heavy dakars in the rear. I have about a 2.25 inch in the front with my armor and a 3 in the rear with my cap and some things in the bed but not 600lbs. I do have a dclb if that makes a difference.

    I wonder if your cap dropped your rear any? I won’t have anything but a bed mat back there 90% of the time.

    Not much. I have taken it off and on at the rear drops 1/4" when I put it on and goes up about 1/4" when I took it off.
