Is anyone running J's up front and heavies in the rear? The way my truck is set up now, it will only sit level with a bunch of weight in the back, which only happens a couple times a year. With the ARB and winch, the front is sitting pretty looooow. Thanks.

I am.

The back of my truck is loaded up with a bunch of stuff too. I still have not removed my third row seats, have a large recovery kit(chains, straps, shackles, snatch black, etc...), a full bag of tools, and other miscellaneous junk. The truck sits level and rides quite nice even when I have several passengers in the third row. I would estimate all of this stuff weighing in between 200-300 lbs without people back there.

I'm about to do that setup because my current setup with mediums and an ARB up front gives me a pretty big rake. When you did this setup did you change anything besides longer shocks and the caster kit?

I have the "J's" up front and the heavy 863's in the rear, with ARB, sliders - no rear bumper, extra weight or third row seats.
Has a slight rake that really isn't that bad, and would settle when loaded.
I changed the brake lines, and installed the caster correction bushings.
I haven't changed the front shocks yet since they are still new :D!
I have no vibrations and the truck handles really well.

Don't know about now, but when Christo first got the J's, that's what a lot of folks were doing.
