    Any way possible to get my truck higher? First idea, buy new leafs, icon, and crank up my front coils, danahoe racing, and then finish with 33" tires.

    Questions::: What kind of leafs should I buy and when I install them will I need to tamper with rear danahoe resi shocks??
    '
    If my max on front coils is 3" then what type of leaf springs should I buy??

    Uh... Exactly what components do you have on the vehicle now? 3" is pretty much max, unless you go to a drop-bracket style lift kit.

    The coils are not maxed out now they are sitting at about 2" but when I put it to 3 i want the back to be even so Im wondering if leaf springs could help. thanks for the reply

    Do you have lift springs or an AAL now?

    Whats AAL? and all I have done to lift it is put that suspension on it. I did not change anything else.

    Add-a-leaf. I need to know exactly what components are already on the vehicle so that we are not stacking lift parts. But so far sounds like you need to crank up your coilovers a bit, and get an AAL for the rear.

    All pro leaf pack if you run with an empty bed.

    Dakars if you're carrying a lot of gear into the backcountry.

    My two cents.

    Yea that sounds right the leafs are stock and no lift kit or blocks all stock except for suspension, but Ill probably get new leafs thank you.

    Any tips on what kind, I do a lot of intense trails and lug a lot in my bed.
