    First, Thank everyone for fantastic advice.

    I am going with OME 885's, Dakar leafs, and a drop kit. The truck always is laden with a fiberglass cap mounted with an extensive Yakima rack. Often is loaded with 1/4 chord of fire wood, and is usually loaded wih a hitch motocycle carrier. KTM 200 = 225LBS. Right now, the truck looks squashed and easily hits the stop bumpers in the rear.

    Do you think this is the fix?

    Plus, I believe leveling might need more thought.

    Given your statement "looks squashed" 884 springs might keep you from being nose-high.

    3" OME lift with 885 coils on nitrocharger 90000 shocks with 5mm trim packer on driver's side, TC UCAs, Rear OME Dakar leafs with nitrocharger shocks, All-pro U-bolt flip kit and 3* Toytec shims, extended rear brakelines, 16" Raceline Rockcrusher 887 wheels with 3.6" backspacking, BFG KM2 305/70/16 tires, Doug Thorley header, Doug Thorley catback exhaust, Volant CAI with ram air, Weathertech floor mats, Kicker 12" sub, Kenwood 500W RMS amp, Relentless Fab front and rear bumpers, 4.88 gears, custom flatbed with swing out tire carrier
    884s like said above will help the rear from looking sagged when carrying a load. But without a load it may have too much rake. It all depends on what u would rather have.

    You could also stick with the 885s and add the D29XL extra leaf set to your Dakars later on if/when they sag a bit under that extra weight.
