Have you thought about air bags . I have a friend with a V6 1500 who has put load leveling air bags on it and loves it .

Check out SuperLift, SkyJacker or the Rough Country lift sites. They have AAL sets for most trucks.

Interesting. They have one for my 2nd generation truck but not your generation truck.

And here I thought I had posted some useful info.

My day is not complete, however, until I do. If you are opposed to airbag systems for load leveling, I'd like to ask if you are raising your truck or simply want more load carrying capacity.

You weren't specific about your application. Since I have to guess, given the dearth of information in your initial post, I'll pass along some information on AAL kits that may fit your truck, however, I would advise you call the sources below to confirm fitment for your truck.

Here's several sources:

1. General Spring of Kansas City, Inc.
915 E 56 Hwy.
Olathe, KS 66061

Phone: 913-829-0619
Toll Free: 888-829-0619
Fax: 913-829-2556

Email: sales@generalspringkc.com

2. Here's a link from 4WheelParts.com for a 3/4T AAL kit for the 2008 Dodge Ram 4X4 which may or may not work with your truck. It will definitely lift your truck and add carrying capacity, depending on your need:

http://www.4wheelparts.com/Lift-Kits...2&t_pn=SKYR334

3. Deaver Spring of Santa Ana, CA is prototyping and testing a 2008 Dodge Ram leaf spring system in conjuntion with Carli Suspension. It is not on the market yet but you can contact them at 714.542.3703

or email them at:

Email
General Information: info@deaverspring.com
Sales: sales@deaverspring.com
Customer Support: service@deaverspring.com

or contact Carli Suspension at:

2177 N. Batavia suite A
Orange, CA 92865
Phone: 714.532-2798
Fax: 714.639-5325
Email: info@thecarlisuspension.com

Now, I'm sure there are more options out there for you given the examples shown above. It just takes a bit of research.

I shall endeavour to be more helpful in the future.

Let us know how your research goes on this mod. I'm sure it will be helpful to other members here.
