    Ok so this is the first truck i'm going to lift...i have an 06 Dcab sport 6spd...Since i do alot of towing (camper) and hauling i decided to go with a coil kit with AAL...there are two that i'm looking into...

    the revtek kit: http://www.wheelersoffroad.com/05uprevtektaco.htm

    or the toytec kit (Part # OME3-05-AL): http://www.toyteclifts.com/0507tacocart.html#0507tacoliftkits

    basically i'm looking for opinions on which of these kits are better...the revtek is cheaper, but i dont' want that to sway my decision either...also i read somewhere that you should also purchase a differential drop...i know the cv can wear with the lift...so is it something i really should invest in as well?...sorry if this topic has been asked already :(

    from what i understand of add-a-leafs...is that the longer the better...makes the ride a bit less harsh i think

    i know wheelers offers a 3 leaf aal for the 05+...which is what i run on my 02...supposed to be even nicer and less "stiff"

    i havent driven a truck with a single aal but i know my truck rides like stock with the saws and 3leaf aal
