    What should go on next?

    I am going camping in a couple of weeks to Red Rock canyon and need to decide what to put on next on my truck for a safe trip in and out. I am debating between the IFS Skids or ARB CKMA12 (just to inflate tires no locker yet) or AAL (wheelers/headstrong with flip plate) to raise my rear as it currently sitting really low. See pic.

    I already have the following:

    Parts

    Recovery Gear

    Here is my truck (2009 pre-runner) at the office parking lot, the only thing that is currently bothering me is how the rear is lower than the front. I am hoping that the AAL fixes that.

    wow, do you have any lift in the front? do you have stuff in your bed? Is that just sagging of the factory leaf pack?

    Nothing in the back, it is just sagging from the factory leaf that I hope gets replaced soon with the recall. I am thinking that the AAL will help me a bit until then.

    3 inch lift in the front.

    AAL is going to be a band-aid on that worn out factory leaf pack. Try to get the 4 leaf pack from the TSB, if not go with a total replacement pack.

    Skids are more important than bumps or on board air.

    5/6 spark plugs intact, 2/3 wires intact, 2/3 ignition coils intact, wasp under hood, rusty rocker panels, 5100s, Eibachs, Dakars, AllPro Taco Supreme Front Bumper, 33/10.5/15 KM2s, Wheelers Type B rims, 4x Sliders w/ kickouts, Blitzpro 21s under bed for reverse light, OZ4WD led pods on ditch brackets, extended rear brake lines
    AAL to get rid of the bro lean. Loaded up for camping you'll be sagging way below the front.

    I would just replace the leaf pack with an All Pro. or Dakar or at least an ICON 1.5 3 leaf Progressive AAL and single AAL won't do shit. You got some serious Bro Lean going on there. I have OME 887's on 5100's and rear ICON 2.0 Shocks with the rear ICON 1.5 3 leaf Progressive AAL.

    I like how your truck stands. That is what I am aiming for.

    There are posts on here that say wheelers and Icons are from the same factory. Didn't know headstrong had one, but I assume they don't manufacture it either.

    I have the wheelers pack and am satisfied with it. Also when installing, I'd keep the overload leaf in.

    Wheelers are about 40 dollars cheaper. If they are from the same manufacturer, wheelers make more sense to buy. I will check it out.

    Maybe... I will try to push the truck as much as I can without causing too much damage. If I can not get far with LSD, then I know what is next on my purchase list. I am going with buddies incase I do hit the *shit storm*. :crapstorm:

    I run my tires at 40. Some of the question & answers on the Amazon page say that yes it can get up to 40. But 35 would get me to the Gas Station to put in the last 5.

    I'm surprised more people haven't said this already, but:

    If your leafs need replacing anyway, you might as well just spend a little more money and remedy the issue issue instead of putting a bandaid on it. The TSB 4-leaf pack isn't worth it, even if it's 'free'. Just do it the right way.

    Do it right or do it twice, buy once cry once, etc.
