    Thanks for the response man. I looked at buying them from headstrong offroad, but will for sure look at firestone retailer too. But as far as quality they have held up well and you would recommend them?

    Oh yes, great quality, i have worked mine hard, and they have never caused me a single issue. I drive offroad quite a bit as well. I would definitely recommend them

    @trdsport6

    Heres a pic recently when i had the truck loaded down to go get tires installed. I had five wheels and tires on a 50lb cargo basket, four more tires in my camper shell (about 265lbs worth of new tires), and then all the normal weight i have on the truck, which is about 500lbs out back with the camper shell, tools, and other gear. I aired those bad boys up and i was on my way lol. The truck was struggling, but i was sitting level

    Was this a kit or did you have to piece it all together?
    Weighing my options since I built a bedrack.

    Chevy 63s vs Dakar vs Bags vs SUMO Springs.


    I hate choices.

    It was a kit. They send you bags, air lines, fittings, and all the brackets/hardware needed to mount them up. If i were you, id go leaf springs personally. The bags are great for weight handling and adjustability, but the ride can be a little bouncy from time to time.. im going to be upgrading to dakars in the coming months myself

    Unfortunately probably not for at least a few months.. so i wouldnt wait on me if you are in need of something now.. i just bought gears and tires recently, so thats putting a damper on my mod money:anonymous:

    Ill keep you in mind though whenever i get ready to sell them!

    Well one of my VLEDs switchback turn signals took a dump again.. last time it was the drivers side, now its the passenger side. They said they were going to upgrade me to the new v6 tritons, but i have this weird feeling that theyre going to deny my warranty claim since they were covered in bastrop mud.. crossing my fingers and hoping it all works out:fingerscrossed:

    Their customer service has been good up to this point, but since they discontinued my v3’s, my warranty is pretty much null and void going forward.. its a shame because i spent $$$ up front to get these knowing they had a lifetime warranty

    A few updates finally. VLEDs is going to warranty my blinkers, so im going to have those in the mail to install tomorrow!:D

    Last week, wired up and plumbed my ARB twin compressor, manifold, and ran the switches into the cab.

    This weekend, regeared with 4.88s and added an ARB RD129 locker. Did some fitment for the switches underneath the radio today and finally got them in place.

    While trying to track down metal-on-metal clanking/clattering noises this weekend, i ended up tightening all my ubolts which were loose after i got my recall springs installed, and pulled the driveshaft and replaced the ujoint near the carrier bearing which was bad. That should solve the driveline vibes ive been having at 45-50mph.

    Ive got about 280 miles on the new gears so far and couldnt be happier. Truck has plenty of power now, and i can finally use fifth gear again. My mileage has also jumped up from about 13 on the highway to 20mpg again.

    Definitely is a great ratio for running bigger tires, lots of extra weight, or both. You wont be disappointed!
