    when I get the cash I am going to get some 2.0'' SAW's for my taco for the front and set them at about 2'' of lift

    What rear suspension would be the best to match the SAWs up front? (as far as ride quality/capability)

    I was thinking wheelers/alcan 5 leaf-pack (1.5'' lift) and bilstein 5100's.

    Would that be too mismatched or will that handle fine? I like that setup because of the cost, its relatively cheap and I will be really broke after getting the SAWs.

    I do some moderate wheeling, mostly trails, dirt roads, lots of washboard.

    No high speed baja stuff.

    thanks for the insight!

    not regularly. I may tow a light trailer and a dirtbike once in a blue moon...but nothing else.

    My bed is empty about 99% of the time.

    Should be about level with the 5 pack then. If it were my choice I'd go up with some shackles as well just to have a slight rake but it sounds like in your case it's all personal preference.

    I want it to be about level. My biggest concern was that the billys in the back wouldn't be up to par w/ the SAWs as far as capability and ride quality

    I have saw 2.0s in the front and billy 5100s in the back with the wheelers 3 leaf AAL. It rides awesome! Only complaint is my leafs are almost flat.

    gotcha, probably time for some new leaf packs. My leafs have a pretty good frown to them now.

    Thanks for the help guys
