    So I just pulled the trigger on a AC4x4 lift package. AAL and Front control arms and such.
    the question is do I use all the AALs? (I have lift shackles as well) I am mostly looking for added load capacity. not really "lift" can I mix and match the leafs? has anybody else done this. and if so whats a good combination?
    any recommendations?

    Since no one has replied to this thread, this is what I ended up doing. I only used 2 of the 3 leafs in the AAL. removed the overload leaf on the recommendation that it is just a digger when in the mud. Combined with the AC adjustable shackles and extended length Rancho 9000 shocks, rear sway bar removed(didn't fit around the 9000s). Rear bump stops replaced with Timbren units. The truck rides GREAT. Loaded up or empty. My build is a DD set up for backwoods roaming but not "wheeling" for the sake of trying to break it. With this set up I can load up with 2 adults, 1 100lb dog and gear for a week of camping and not be sitting on the stoppers. It does have a little bit more body roll in the corners, but hey this is not an autocross rig.
