    Since @csuviper kicked us off his thread can I get some feedback on adding extra support on my rear suspension?

    I think I flattened my stock leaf pack with lots of gear and heavy rear end drops over the weekend.

    Added leaf pack (brands and models?), add resis, air bags, or etc has been mentioned. I'm keeping an RTT, bed rack, loaded gear, spare, and numerous other camping/wheeling gear.

    Suggestions.....GO!

    First off, go under truck and see what color your rear shocks are. Are they black and purple? :( Or blue? Or an awesome silver and red color?

    Icon leaf pack and airbags. Maybe even some sumo springs to ease the stress on the leafs (in place of the airbags)

    Don't want to stiffen the ride. That's one reason I went with suspension lift

    Replacement sounds good but I'm assuming it's the most costly option you mentioned

    Icon AAL is one of the best off the shelf mods for added load capacity. As others have stated. I've built a few hunting rigs at work and that's what works best all around for my customers. They're running loaded Decked drawer systems with some good weight in em

    Would it still be the best option if my springs are already flat?

    Should be just fine. You end up removing part of the stock pack.
