    I have a few questions about swapping a 3rd gen TRD Offroad take off suspension into my 2nd gen.
    Here are the specifics.
    My truck:
    2012 TRD Offroad, access cab, 4x2, v6, Automatic

    Donor parts truck:
    2019 TRD Offraod, double cab, long bed, 4x4, V6, automatic

    My questions are:
    1) Will the 2019 donor leaf springs work on 2012 - are they a direct bolt in (are double cab, long bed, 4x4 leaf springs different than access cab, 4x2 leaf springs?)
    2) Are the UCA's the same on each truck or will I need/want to use the 2019 UCA's to get the maximum benefit. My 2012 UCA are in good shape and don't need to be replaced if not necessary.

    Thanks.

    1. Yes they will fit without issue.
    2. 2005-2020 have the same upper control arms.
