    Hi,

    I'm looking more and more at the RCD 4.5 lift kit. I would like to match it with a 3" rear leaf pack. Something like All-pro, deaver or alcan kit. I do not like the idea of having a huge block for the rear lift. Plus the leaf pack can give good flex too. And maybe if I can put some good coilovers later on up front I can get better flex too?

    I know it won't be perfectly leveled. But I like the prerunner's look. Tell me what is your thought about it. Something I missed? Other idea?

    Actually I have an 2007 AC but looking to buy a DC Long bed to accomodate the baby seat. :D

    Thanks

    4.5 up front and 3 in the back is barely enough to level the front end. It will still sit about 1/4-1/2 inch lower in the front. All you need is a 2 inch pack or do an add a leaf and a 1/2 inch block. Do the Icon progressive add a leafs and a 1/2 inch block for 2 inches.
    Or there is some guy on here who makes 3" inch lift shackles which look pimp.
