    I just bought a 3" Revtek lift for my 01 Tacoma. I bought it from a buddy and it didn't come with rear shocks. Any advice on rear shocks? Skyjacker vs. Bilstein vs. Rancho? I have a heavy canopy and often tow a small ski boat and haul loads of firewood....how much stiffness can I expect from a light duty add-a-leaf?

    And your wanting to put in a AAL? it's not going to be that much stiffer.

    The bilstien 5100 shocks are good shocks for the rear And are much better than the rancho or the skyjacker shocks
