Yeah Andrew the can carrier mounted in my bed is not the same one that mounts onto the swing away.

It's ok...I really don't like the look with the can carrier mounted on the swing away so.....I'll only mount it when I go on wheeling/camping/road trips. No biggie

Would refurbishing your leafs give you the half inch back?

What are you running in the front? Any adjustment there?

Trimming is the best way to eliminate rubbing! Pinch weld, cab mount and lots o' lots of plastic!

Yeah I've done plenty of trimming on the front as well as having a CMC, but still have minor rubbing issues. There is no way I would turn down the CO's to match the rear. I am thinking I will just have to throw a 1" block on the rear.

If you are running Dakar's you can add an overload leaf to them as it's supported for extra weight which is why I went with them, when I add a camper and gear. Talk to Sierra Expeditions in town
