    Considering how new your truck is, I would say that your packs are still in good shape. Toyota leaf packs are pretty much flat when brand new. Add the weight of your topper, and I would not be suprised if the were frowning a little bit. An aal is probably your best bet. If you don't want to lift the vehicle any more, then the 3 leaf would probably be the best option for a minimal raise in the rear. But if you would like to go with the Dakar packs, I can certainly get you set up with those as well.

    Under 3" you don't need new brake lines, so basically just your leaf packs and whatever hardware you need to install...center pins and u-bolts (since you're going to be back there dicking around anyway, now is an optimal time to install a u-bolt flip kit).

    As Dan said, an AAL may do the trick for you, offsetting the weight of the cap.
