    i currently have a 2in spacer under my stock leaf pack and have a kennesaw rear bumper commin in soon. my leafs already have a frowny face look to them. i wheel my truck to, and they are always hitting the bumpstops.

    what is a good solid leaf pack for a cheap price that can handle all of this?

    would a aal be good enough to support that extra weight and still be decent offroad?

    thoughts, comments, and concerns are appriciated :D

    All Pro sells 2 different leaf packs you might be interested in....

    All-Pro Leaf Springs - provides 3 inches of lift - Used more for flex and offroading conditions. You shouldn't have to worry about sag at all with these...

    or

    If you tow or haul a lot you might want to look into the Emu Dakar Leaf Springs they sell. Made to carry more weight but not flex as well on the trail and provide 2.75 lift.

    Either way you go, its still a huge improvement over what your currently running.

    Oh and the price for option 1 is 375$ and for 2 its 399$

    ;)

    How heavy is your bumper anyways?

    EDIT: added descriptions for all pros website.....

    You'll definitely have to show us pics and such of your bumper. I'm a bit interested in how it looks. What options did you get with it and how much was it?

    still waiting for it to come in. but they are pretty dern cheap. $400 for the rear bumper + $65 for the reciever hitch. and then shipping was $107. but i have to say customer service was a little lacking with the company. i would only do it if you are exremely conservative about your money. i got the quote in early july and told them to put me on the list. they said they were gonna start on it that weekend. i called back 2 weeks later and they said they havnt gotten around to it yet. i called a week ago and said that they were going into production. called yesterday and they said that some will go out this week and others will go out late next week. so i dunno when its gonna come in. just be preared to wait with what ever place you choose. i switched my order from all pro to kennesaw b/c the wait w/ all pro was to long but turned out i am waiting a month longer to get the kennesaw. :eek: but i saved a $100 in the process. will do a full review when i get the bumper in
