    Guys,

    I am about to order my new suspension components:

    -LR UCA's
    -5100's w/885 OME coils (set at 0) for about 2.5" of front lift
    -5100 Rear shocks
    -1.5 or 2" inch rear lift (AAL or block, undecided)

    I am going to put a LEER cap on the truck. I want the truck to ride level, with no rake.

    Should I get a 1.5" rear lift or 2" lift to offset the weight of the cap? Your thoughts?

    S/F

    Jim

    Icon or Wheeler's 1.5" AAL and leave the overload leaf in place. Gives you 2" of lift and rides great with a shell.

    OME 885x , OME shocks and Dakars , Wheelers SuperBumps front and rear , 275/70/17 Hankook ATm , OEM bed mat , Weathertech digifit floor liners , Weathertech in-channel vents , headache rack , Leer 100RCC commercial canopy , TRD bedside decals removed , Devil Horns by Andres , HomerTaco Satoshi
    Even the Dakars will sag some under the constant weight of a cap , mine sagged 5/8" in just over a year with my commercial Leer cap , the 100RCC

    I am going to add the OME AAL , the d29xl

    When I bought it, Leer camper shell, N-Fab nerf bars, Westin bull bar. So far I've put K&N air filter and Jet Performance throttle body spacer, lights behind grill, snorkel, custom grill, and weather tech floor mats. Axe and shovel w/bed mounts, high lift jack w/bed mount, and Brute force fab rear bumper.
    I have an inch and a quarter on the front and then did a add a-leaf in the rear, with or without my LEER cap my truck sits level. I might do a 3 inch left one day but I like how it sits and rides.

    Which 2" AAL does everyone recommend. I would like the Dakar leaf packs, just cant afford 400.00 for the rear alone right now. Thanks!

    JMWOLF96,

    I suggest contacting Doug a member "4WD" here at TW. I think you will like his solution. I do believe he is near you as well.
