Wheelers Progressive AAL Install Issue Solved

So I just put OME 885x's w/ 5100's at 0" in the front with 5100's in the rear and the Wheelers 1.5" Progressive AAL. Got everything installed smoothly up front and then came the AAL. Install wasnt difficult but I ran into a problem. The factory leaf hanger was resting up against the new hanger for the AAL and the factory hanger was also wedged on the AAL which wasnt allowing the bolt for the new hanger to go through as seen in the pictures. Called wheelers and Dan was very helpful. He told me that some trucks for some reason which he hasn't figured out have the factory hanger in a different spot causing this issue. So he told me to grind the rivet head off the bottom of the hanger then use something like a crowbar to spread the hanger open and pull it off. Once that was done the AAL hanger popped up and the bolt went right in. Overall excellent product that rides great, great price, outstanding customer service and overall an awesome buying experience. Ive dealt with wheelers several times before and always pleased. Thanks again guys







And how the truck sits after it all...

^ Nice! I've got the same setup. Are you 6 leafs total or 7 total? What are your rear shocks? stock 22.9"by14" 5100's? < that's what im running with the shock extender from toytec because I was maxxing them out extended. Now I'm running http://www.energysuspensionparts.com...prod=KU09037BK because the shock extender made my shock bottom out 1 inch before the bumpstop touched (did some measuring).

so would you typically run with both hangars or does the factory one come out anyway?

my truck did not have any issues with stock hangars like above. My theory is that TSB packs have that hanger bracket in the spot where OP had issues, where as non TSB packs have the bracket spaced out farther since there are only 2 leafs not including the overload. Sports come with 4 leafs and Off Roads come with 3 leafs from what I can gather.

@757, they are pretty close Do you have any near future plans? I have a set of gunmetal konig countersteers due to go on this week. Super pumped about them!

Cheers,
