    ive decided to get the 3 inch OME lift for my 07' double cab tacoma. was wondering about the rear leaf setup. dakar leaf pack vs the add a leaf. does the dakar lift the rear higher than the add a leaf? just wondering if spending the extra money for the dakar leaf pack is worth it or not? is the ride quality different between the two? i have searched but have not found to many good answers on this topic. any help would be appreciated. thanks in advance

    Dakars will get a DC on average , 2 1/2" of lift

    If you do not tow or haul , I would suggest a 3 leaf AAL instead

    thanks for the response. when you suggest a 3 leaf AAL, do you mean the OME option that adds one more leaf to my stock leaf springs or is it something else?

    thanks for the help OZ-T. i am confused about one thing if you could help. wanting a 3 inch lift using the ome sport nitro shocks front and back with the ome 885 springs up front, the wheelers 3 Leaf AAL in the rear but it says only a 1.5" lift with the Wheelers 3 leaf AAL?

    Work in progress, but installed so far; 265/70/17 Duratracs, Spidertrax, OME885X coils with OME lean spacer, OME N140S and N182 shocks, Wheeler's 1.5" 3 Leaf Progressive AAL (kept the overload), LR UCAs. TP14 spacers
    3" refers only to the lift in front. The 1.5" lift in the rear will give you an almost level stance. If you want to retain the factory rake reconsider Daks.

    With the Wheeler's progressive 3-leaf, is the 1.5" of lift achieved by leaving the stock overload leaf in? (It says they can be used with or without the overload . . . And why would you remove the overload leaves anyway?) Also, do they come with longer center pins in addition to the longer u-bolts?

    I'm thinking of replacing my ToyTec add-a-leaves with the progressives for a less harsh ride.

    You will get 1.5" above where it sits now if you leave your overload in. If you take the overload out, you're height gain will be <1.5". Personally, I left mine in. You can use the stock centerpins if you aren't installing axel shims
