    Going to be installing an icon 1.5 aal on my dclb tomorrow. I have a Leer cap and a platform in the back that I guess to weigh around 100lb. That puts the weight in the bed to 300ish lbs. Should I put the overload back in or should I leave it out? Not looking to get over 1.5in of lift


    Thank you!

    You should never remove the overload leaf. it’s a stupid to remove it, reserved for people who don’t use their bed, or went overboard on springs. (Kinda one in the same).

    I'd leave it in with a cap.

    It seems everyone says to leave it, but I took mine out and am really happy with it. I'm roughly an inch over stock, which is where I want to be. As mentioned above, I don't use my bed to carry bags of cement or buckets of gravel, but I use it like 99% of the truck owners out there. The occasional loads (usually longer camp trips to middle of Baja) have done fine, I would not sacrifice unnecessary lift or ride quality for the 1% of time I "use my bed". But like half the answers are on here-- you have to do what is best for your use and not listen to all the experts on TW.
