    Sorry for the delay on responded to both of you.

    These are bit firmer than the OME Dakar leafs but give a little less lift. I would say the closest comparison would be the Dakars with the extra leaf added but only 2 inches of lift.

    However since they are a 10 leaf pack, they still ride nice when unloaded.

    We will be adding them as a option for the BOSS and Ultimate kits shortly!

    :cheers:

    Anyone ever buy the boss springs? CBS says the ride is pretty soft considering unloaded weight. The OMEs provide a touch too mu cheaper lift for me. I'm wondering how the load capacity really is considering they offer less of a lift.

    im gonna bump this..

    curious to hear how these ride and perform. I like the fact that they are 2" of lift, and can support weight.. I need to replace my worn out pack with the weak Icon 3 leaf pack added.. i bottom out constantly and have now gotten some negative arch.

    bump. What does a BOSS leaf pack do with some weight in it? With only 2" of lift you wouldn't want them to sag much before your lifted front end and your squatting rear starts looking goofy.

    Handles the same weight as the Dakars. Essentially the same pack, just not as much lift height. Still has a 10 + 2 leaf pack design. The 2 overloads work beautifully. I have zero complaints about the BOSS pack.

    Any word on how the Boss spring pack compares to the Deaver leaf springs? They seem almost identical but the Boss springs come with a cheaper price tag.

    I have the boss kit on my 05 short bed. I love the set up for daily driving and wheeling. It rides really well, but the rear sags with weight. I am currently building an expo trailer and when the trailer is hooked up it sags. Since the trailer is still being rehabbed I don't have much experience, but i think i will be needing to address the sagging when the trailer is done and some testing takes place. So that is my info about the BOSS set up. Now my question with these BOSS leaf springs can I put in an add a leaf or do anything to allow me to carry more weight while not having to buy new leaf springs?

    I'm in the same boat...


    I was a dummy tho.. and removed one of the two overload leafs during install. At the time, I didnt have any of the gear or weight I have now. Currently, I still have just the one overload in, and my BOSS leafs sag pretty bad. With the trailer and loaded up, I ride my Superbumps. Without the trailer, but loaded, I am a couple inches from them.

    From your scenario, it sounds like I would be having the same problem even if I had both overloads in huh? My plan was to throw the second one back in, and then have the whole pack re-arched. If that doesnt do it, then a new pack in order for sure.

    I just dont even want to mess with them. one more complicated thing to deal with. I dont tow very often, so cant justify it either. I also dont think they would work with my applications..

    A small handful of select mods.
    So given that you have a 2015 your rear leaf pack is relatively new. You could do an AAL and it will give you lift for a couple of years. The stock leaf pack just was not designed to do anything more then stay at stock height. If you really want to gain lift and gain increased load capacity for the long term a set of Dakar Leaf Packs are the best way to go. Check your PM's for some additional information.

    Does anyone have any updates to how the boss kit/dakar kit worked for you guys. Going to replace my rear block with a leaf kit and thinking about going this route.
