Bastard packs

Fewer thinner leafs provides the most flex when discussing leaf packs. I ended up doing an RC 3in aal in my crown hd leaf packs with oem shackles. Its a stiff ride for sure but the jk rubi shocks add to the stiffness. Doing a 1.5in shackle with the RC shackle relocation which adds another 1.5in, you could keep your stock leaf packs, flex like mad, and it will be smooth on the road. These are cool as well but Im not sure if it adds height to your lift - http://www.liquidironindustries.com/...cat=351&page=1
