    Hey guys,

    Looking to get away from my AAL and purchase a new leaf pack. Can anyone tell me that has these packs and what the likes/dislikes you have about them. Also if you could tell me the suspension set up you have, as well as how much lift the pack provided your truck (from stock if available, along with tire size).

    Prefer if you have a Dbl Cab Long Bed, but the Short Bed info is fine also. I've heard the ride can be different and the lift height can vary from the two also.

    DAKAR - Standard Leaf Pack (Part #: CS047R)
    Deaver - J66 & U402
    Allpro - Standard Leaf Pack (Part #: 4505T-AP-3-PR)

    These are the ones I've been looking at. If anyone else has a different set up or suggestions I'm all ears!

    Dakars here with the AAL and It gave me 3.3x" before my shell. It's probably a little closer or just under 3"..all of that will change soon though :anonymous:

    How is the ride? Obviously better than stock, but with nothing in the bed does it still ride smooth? Or when you hit a pot hole it's a little ruff?

    It rides like a caddy compared to my OEM leaf pack with a single AAL. Empty it isn't too bad and it handles a lot of weight

    I have the Allpro standard leafs. I'm at about 2-2.5" of lift with a steel bumper w/swingout and 35" spare. It rides very smooth.

    Have you ever ran pretty hard in the dirt or sand? Does it still ride smooth with the steel bumber and nothing in the bed?

    It does ride smooth even if the bed is empty. If you're talking about fast desert type runs then no. There's really no place for us to do that where we live. The leaf pack is very flexy and is holding up my steel bumper and big spare. I didn't want huge rake so I went with the standards instead of the expos. I am curious if it would have been better to get the expo leafs and remove a leaf though.

    Cool. Thanks man. I'm leaning toward the standard and possibly removing a leaf from that pack. I'm looking to stay away from the 'rake' look also, but still have a nice cushy ride.

    Set up a poll, I would like to see the results. I was also leaning towards getting the all-pro standard pack

    Has anyone ever had a leaf pack built for them? There are a few places near me that will build custom leaf packs but I have no idea about how to go about it.

    I think you just go in and tell them what you want and they work with your needs and build one for you. I saw a build where the guy went to Alcan and had them build it to his needs and seemed very pleased. Let me see if I can dig it up.

    Custom built is expensive though
