    I never measured exactly how much I got but it levels the truck out perfectly. More than likely it'll give you about an inch more than you'll need but if you have a camper shell in the rear it should even it out good. Although the 5100's I have in the rear may give the rear an addition lift also. Hope that was of some help.

    I think the 881s will give me 2-2.25"...The Dakars on yours look like they give your 3" a nice rake..Might need to get the Wheelers 5 leaf pack for me.

    Thanks!

    I forgot to ask, are you running the standard 5100s in the rear or did you get 5125s for all the lift that the Dakars give?

    I'm running 5100's all the way around, they've been doing fine in the rear thus far.

    Yea that was my question. It looks like the dakars gave quite a bit of lift in the rear. People say that your not suppose to run 5100's if you have more than 2" of lift..you seem to have more. They have been fine though?

    Also what is the exact leaf pack you have and where did you order them?

    Yea I have about three inches in the rear but the 5100s have been fine thus far. I ordered the 2.5 inch lift dakar pack from wheelers. Im toying with the idea of getting some 5150s though just in case.

    Yea the 5100 should be fine. Talked to wheelers and the only thing that shorter shocks prevent is allowing your suspension to flex. I don't do any serious rock crawling or anything where I'm flexin the hell out of the suspension...so even with 3" of lift in the rear you're still gonna b ok with the 5100's

    Did you purchase anything else along with the dakar leafs? shackles? or are you using your factory shackles? Also I think I was speaking with you the other day about LR uca's. Do you have any pics of the uca's, also pics of the dakars from under the truck. thanks

    Finished my bed rack! Just have to paint it tomorrow. Progress pics are below. first pic is everything but the reinforcements. This is only my second week welding, but it turned out to be pretty strong. It supported 500 pounds the weight of my four friends with no problem. I'm planning on mounting my spare tire underneath in the middle, hi lift jack mounted on one side, shovel on the other. And some kind of bed rack on top.
