    You dont need a U bolt flip kit. Thats all it does is gives you a little more ground clearance under your rear axel. And i cant wait to see the truck after all the goods are installed.

    But its not a bad idea. It will give you some extra ground clearance.

    you should probably get longer rear brake lines since your new leafs will allow for more travel and can/will put stress on the lines.

    I would do the brake lines as a precautionary thing. Ive noticed even with my 5 leaf progressive pack, at full flex, there is alot of stress on my brake lines. I do have new ones in the garage waiting to go on though. Its better to have them and not need them that to not have them and tear one and be F**ked.

    I got mine from toytec for about 60 bucks

    Toyotec makes them, they help eliminate axle wrap.

    Also will need bushings for the rear, unless that leaf pack includes them, but most only include half of the bushings you need.
