    Okay here's my dilemma I got a got a new toy so my current toy/DD is gonna be my tow rig. I still want it to be capable off-road so I don't want to install a heavy duty leaf pack. Current set-up is bolt on deaver 10 pack so I'm gonna have to change packs regardless. I've made up my mind either use the 50T pack sitting in my garage or get the Defined Engineering set-up.

    What do you guys think?

    use the 50T pack since you have it, then you wouldn't need too much more stuff to complete the rear

    I heard All Pro or some other distributor claim the 50T pack is a pretty heavy duty pack, capable of carrying more weight than other packs, ideal for chase trucks, so im betting that the 50T pack will be the winner in terms of towing and/or hauling

    Thanks for ruining my day haha. Im installing F67's maybe this week. Hopefully it can at least handle the small amount I do need to haul for work.

    Well if you balance your trailer right with the rig in it there should be very little weight on the tongue of your truck. So you dont need to much more heavy duty of a spring.

    How much weight?

    THey hold quite a bit of weight but you can't tow with them is what I meant. 50T will be better for that. The F67s are really soft.

    no idea what the work trailer weighs but tongue weight actually is very very low. My boat however may be a different story. Probably a god excuse to sell the boat to pay for the cage and a supercharger though :D
