    I currently have the wheelers 3 leaf aal pack that replaces the overload leaf. I also have a 1" block installed to give the ride height i like. I use helwig helper springs when i have to load the bed with my motorcyle or anything else that is heavy but i'm tired of the on/off process with helper spring and wondered if i could do this:
    wheelers 3leaf aal pack, AND factory overlaod spring, 1/2" block
    any one see problems with this?
    Intended to give the ride height i prefer, and be able to fit my 295/75/16 and occasionally haul the bike or some building supplies without sagging too bad.
    thanks

    thanks brunes. good to know. i might go with that set up and just do a smaller block for more lift if i wanted it.
    do you ever put loads in the bed? it should have more capacity with the overload right?
    i hate when my dualsport makes the truck sag in the back! doesn't ride great but mostly looks silly!
    i thought about airbags too. just another idea.
