I did the preventative maintenance to my Dakar Leafs as recommended

Thanks to geekhouse23, I was able to get the Pond Liner Strips a lot easier....Good looking out man, Much appreciated!!

Thank you OZ-T for providing us with the fix to this issue & all the feedback.

Damn. Thanks oz. Did you put anything in there to hold it in place or just shear pressure from the leafs doing the job? Mine are squeaking like hell and makes my almost new truck sound worn out.

So I finally got around to replacing my worn out EPDM strips today after listening to the squeaky squeaky for about a month , I almost forgot how nice and silent the truck could be , while I was replacing the strips I sprayed a bunch of Rust Cure Formula 3000 between the leafs and all over the leaf packs

Tractor tire tube will work fine. It's the same material just in a different shape.

Oz they were probably using a roof flashing. We use a lot of firestone products and they make various sizes of flashings that just require a clean surface with their primer scrubbed on then peel the paper backing off and stick the flashing.

Are there torque specifications for the bolts on the Dakar Leaf pack?
Meaning, do I need to torque the bolt that goes on the center pin down or any other bolt on the leaf pack?

I'm trying to have everything all ready & tightened up for install day

The Factory Service Manual doesn't list a torque spec for the center bolt, and I haven't seen a published one for the OME part. I used 30ft/lbs and called it good.

Funny. Every time my Dakars get squeaky, I know it's time to wash my truck. I juts hit the Dakars with the spray nozzle and the squeak goes away until it's time for another washing
