    I am considering lifting my 2004 Extended Cab Tacoma. It is a V6, 4x4 TRD Off Road. If I put a leaf pack on the rear end, how will that affect my towing?

    You already have a leaf pack back there... If you're talking about a replacement leaf pack or an AAL, it will depend on which one you choose. Some are softer and built for fast off road runs and some are stiffer and better suited for towing.

    I was thinking something like the Dakar or All Pro Leaf Packs

    The Dakars can definitely handle some weight! Allpro makes 2 sets, one is much more stout than the other and handles weight a lot better. I believe the Expedition rack is meant to maintain 3" of lift when loaded down so you'll be higher when unloaded. The standard pack still supports weight well or at least says the reviews on them.

    All Poos expos are 3 inch lift with abouit 500-600#'s in the bed. around 4.5 empty. I have the Poos and they handle weight great. Hauling trailers with a heavy tongue weight or just loading firewood/steel in the bed. and through it all they flex like mad off road
