OME Dakars with D29XL

I picked up a full load (filled to top of camper shell) of firewood last weekend, looked at my OME Dakars and they were almost straight to the eye. The rear end of my truck sagged quite a bit. I'm looking forward to add the D29XL leafs to help with heavy loads, but have a few questions. Will the center pins that came with the CS047 Dakars be long enough for the project or do I have get longer center pins. Do I need to extend my brake lines? Will the ride stiffness in rear noticeable with the D29XL added to the Dakars?

I didn't measure, but the Dakars were flat.

Did you expect to have no sag at all when loaded up ?

The aal for the pack is more meant for supporting extra constant load. You would probably be better off with a set of Timbrens.

I like my Dakars. Just need a little more support if I have a heavy load in the back of my bed and have to tow at the same time.

I gotcha , mine didn't seem to show any significant sag when I had some firewood in the back , maybe you were hauling heavier than me

They were all hardwoods. That's one of the reason why the load was so heavy. I usually tow my quad when I go pick up my wood.
