    Would like to get other opinions. I have a dclb 4x4. With 5100 all around and TSB leafs in the rear. I like my front ride height which is around a 2.5" lift. I am planning on doing front coils on the truck soon as well. But the rear annoys me more right now.
    The rear is sagging quite a bit and is 1.25" lower than the front and around 2" from my bump stops. My question is I want to lift my rear 1.5" so it's around even with the front. and am debating on an aal or just a custom leaf pack. Because I do carry 370-450lbs in the bed of my truck since it's for camping.

    So the first photo is distance from center of hub to fender above. And the second is how the truck sits now

    Sorry for a the question couldn't find anything about added weight in this range and this lift size.

    Thank you for any help.

    I may be mistake. But aren't the dakars more for a 3" lift. My main issue is I want to minimize my bottoming out. I bottom out a decent amount on the road and quite frequently while in the dessert

    EL096R = Dakar heavy duty leaf pack, supposed to get you~2.75" lift with ~600 lbs constant load.
    I have ~550lbs constant load and netted ~2.50" with the heavy duty packs and when loaded for camping lose another .5" or so. I'm lifted 2" in front so with the Dakars HD in the back and constant weight I've got about 1.5" of rake.
    If you get the HD's and don't like the ride height you can always adjust them to be a EL095R pack or something in between.

    Awesome thanks for the help. I did do more digging into them. And heard you can take the 3rd leaf out to make the lift less.

    Yup, or you could take a overload out as well. If the load you are stating is constant, I would recommend the HD dakar pack. They will settle when broken in.
    I do like rake and hate being ass low so my recommendation is biased. To me the Tacoma at level looks bro.

    Fox 2.0. 985-26-118. They pair well with the Dakar. Call headstrong. They'll set you straight.
