Seen guys ditch the idea of AAL and some not really using their entire leaf pack...is it looks? Lift benefits? sag due to RTT and Bedrack? Thoughts...?
If you plan on a RTT or having any semi-permenant gear back there, full pack. Even if you don’t, why not have it if the day ever comes that you gotta haul or tow something extra heavy? It honestly doesn’t make the ride rough even with heavy duty springs.Seen guys ditch the idea of AAL and some not really using their entire leaf pack...is it looks?

Consider how much weight an RTT and bed rack really add, you’re looking at around 300lbs +/- 100 or so for gear. For 70$ give or take you can do an AAL and get around an added 800lb capacity per side. AAL’s are a great option and I’ll never put them down as there’s really no negative considered needs...
That being said a full leaf pack can give you a much larger capacity for towing/static weight, as well as dialing in what type of ride you’d like whether softer or stiffer depending on what your aim is. This option is also much more expensive, so if you have a constant necessity to tow large hauls or have a large static weight on a daily basis whether it be a lot of gear or hauling rock then a leaf pack replacement is for you in which I’d go OME.
Compare needs with wants and think it out. As I said both are viable options can provide increased capacity for weight towed and stored.
Gotcha brother. I was looking at the ONE and Icons recommended from a friend. Is there really a manufacture difference? Or is like Chevy and ford
