    I went with regular All-Pro leafs, not the expos. I haven't hauled anything super heavy yet, just a few small boats and it doesn't squat at all. It's better than what I thought... the new leafs are my favorite thing I have added to the truck! They ride soooo much smoother than my stock ones.

    I've been debating between the two different sets. I hear the expedition leafs ride super rough unloaded. If you don't mind could you keep us updated on how they do with a load, maybe of just typical camping gear or firewood or something? thanks man

    Sorry I haven't updated in a while... To answer your question, it doesn't squat bad at all load with maybe 500 pounds in the back, I loaded a Bear Tracker 250 and a bunch of random stuff in it and it sat fine. I meant to take a picture for you to see but I forgot, sorry... Oh, and it ride really smooth.

    I got my windows retinted yesterday since the front 2 were turning a little purple, I will try to upload pictures later... 15% all the way around but the 2 small side windows and the back window are around 5% since they already had tinted glass.

    Man, the new leaf pack is probably the best money I've spent on my truck so far... And the tint wasn't too awful bad, $160 for the 2 front, the 2 sides, and the rear (3 small ones), it would have been cheaper but they have to strip the old off and clean it real nice

    I appreciate it! If stuff would quit going out (alternator, AC compressor, etc...) I could do more mods

    eeehhhhh, well I haven't done much yet, I've been busy with school. I plan on selling the truck whole minus the tires and wheels, I'm going to sell them separate... Sad to say but doesn't look too promising for me getting another tacoma just yet
