    I haven't heard good things about TrailMaster and it's a spacer lift. What do you plan to use the lift for? Looks, performance, what?

    +1 on the AAL instead of the blocks as well...

    I just had Toyota do the harsh ride TSB and they ended up putting another leaf on the rear. Since this was done, when it gets time to lift the truck, is a block the only way to raise the rear? or is AAL an option?

    hmm. I am going for looks and performance.

    Its not going to be crawling much, just enough to be able to go a decent speed without bottoming out ( tough word..)

    I had the spacer lift and if you plan on running in the desert with it, it kinda sucks, spacer lifts are good for looks and thats about it, alot of guys are doing the 5100 adjustable height shocks from bilstein to lift there trucks and they perform pretty good

    Does the AAL provide a better ride over block?
