    AAL goes usually on the either the very bottom leaf inbetween the overload. Or the next leaf up. Depending on the leaf pack

    Long side goes towards the rear.

    Clean as usual! Quick question, are you using an auxiliary fuse box? If so what kind. I figure you have something fabed up for current and future accessories. My positive terminal looks super crowded.

    The AAL should be the 3rd from the top (different from other brand AAL's that are at or near the bottom of the pack). The flat section in the middle is part of the OME design. Their leaves are all flat in the center so that the bolts don't have to pull arc out of the sping when tightened. By having a flat center the ubolts can just clamp like their supposed to without changing the spring at all.

    Adam,
    Installed my 1.5 shackles and had a question for you. Mine are almost vertical like yours. At full droop I'm worried that the shackle may collapse forward. Is that something to worry about?

    I have never had an issue with my shackles inverting. Mine are not quite vertical. Your new ones look a bit more vertical than mine but you've also got brand new springs. I would get some weight in your bed and go flex them out on a trail or two. Once those springs are broken in, I think you'll have a better shackle angle.

    I snapped this photo tonight of my shackles. This has the weight of the rearbumper and tire carrier, but no topper or bedrack.

    And while I was outside I snapped a photo of the truck. Notice no fender stripes anymore. :) Was getting to many copycats. ;)

    i swear like all aftermarket leaf pack for your guy's years are off by like 1''. I think they need to be longer out back.

    But that could just be me..

    Ideally you might be right, but I have no complaints about the ride quality or the flex as is, so no reason to change it.

    Yeah.... I agree. it's mostly the lift shackles fault though. The shackle angle would be happier with the stock shackles...

    PS the lights look AWESEOME, Adam!I wanted to go with 3 on mine.. :eek: and get a yellow dustcover for the centerone

    Hey man, if you ever get a chance please post some pictures of side shots on level ground, I'm trying to see how much clearance you get from the front tires to the top of the wheel well.
