    Yes, I searched and couldn't find anything on this topic specifically, which is surprising. If there is a thread, please direct me. Thanks in advance.

    I'm looking into a complete leaf pack as I've heard that this is more preferred for a better ride and less squat when loaded vs. an AAL.

    Which is the leaf pack you boys like and why? Prices? Deavers (sag problems?), Icon, Toytec, All Pro..who else? Thanks.

    AP's 3" Pack and the Dakars are both awesome! I'm personally gonna go with the APs...but that doesn't make them better

    Dakars are very good packs. I have them and they are well worth the coin!

    You boys with Dakars. Why did you go with these over APs 11-pack? I mean 11 leafs seems like it'd be better and they are slightly less coin

    I think that the reason people go with the Dakars is b/c everyone that has installed them has had good results and they dont give you as much lift as the AP. You can run a set of 5100's in the front w/ the Dakars and have a somewhat level sitting truck. If you run the AP your truck will have lots of forward rake even with the 5100's set at 2.5inches. For what I use my truck for the Dakars have been great. I can load the truck up with people, bed up with gear, and put the boat on the back and still not bottom out. The Dakars are a very stong setup.

    ^^^ I agree with that. I have really loaded these things down and they hold up great and have yet to sag or ride bad. I like the OME products, they dont make good enough, I have never been let down with anything I have gotten from that company to date. I like the idea of more leafs and in theory it should mean more is better but I feel that there is also a point at which you go over board with too much/many in this case. I do not think that I will ever destroy the Dakars, nor do I think I will have to replace them any time soon. I am not taking anything away from the springs you mentioned I just think that the Dakars are very well made and easy to obtain and work just as they are supposed, and in my truck it feels alot better than the stock springs. IMO.
