    You can get a different leaf pack. Just get the 2" front coils/shocks from iron man and pick up a 3" Dakar leaf pack.

    I put mine om last week with the Toytec AAL. Beyond impressed with the front, AAL is a cheap fix until I can get something better but I no longer bottom out with a bed full of tools. :D
    Highly recommend this lift/suspension upgrade.

    Awesome, thanks for the words fellas and the code :thumbsup:

    Gonna call up toytec and pull the trigger when they open back up on Monday I think - did you get the full leaf pack or the AAL? My rears are only 2 years old and have the tsb already. :)

    Wonder how much tire I can stuff in there, my 265's are almost worn out :D

    I went with the Ironman leafs, I've had it on since January and its only sagged at little due to the cap. And I've seen someone put 255/85/16's on their's but I would worry about rubbing. I myself just got Hankook 265/75/16s, they seem to be the perfect balance in size and performance for me.

    If you can afford it get the Dakars. I did the AAL as a temp fix and its def not as good as a multi leaf pack (more stiff and doesn't take loads worth a damn). Chris, did you install the spacers? Mine looks like it sits a lot higher? Or maybe you have better rubber... http://[​IMG]

    Nah I have a winch/brushguard mount though that is pushing almost 200lbs hanging on the front so I lost some lift compared to everyone else but I don't have any issues with it.Before I got the winch/brushguard it was about as high as yours. Also I did just get new tires so that might be why as well.

    None come with the kit. It comes with a CB drop kit.

    But, no. The diff drop has proven to not do anything to the 2nd gens..

    See, mine came from Sierra (directly from IronMan in Jersey) with a CB drop. I would never use either of them though. Just gives an additional weak spot to an already weak area.

    Yep. I agree. I've got some pretty nice extra bolts though :rolleyes:
    And zero vibes or other issues.

    My coils got pretty banged up as well, question - did you guys do anything to try to seal the chips or just slap them on? Only worried a little about rust, I live pretty close to the beach.....

    Going bowhunting this weekend so installation will have to wait till the next one, wheels are on the way and researching tire installation and alignment (want to knock it all out right after the install so I only have to align once)

    Pretty stoked right now, just wish the assembled coils would have been packed a little better.:(

    I hammered my coils putting them together. I used a paint pen to cover up the chips... Color doesn't match but they look pretty beat up after a few times off road anyway. Nice choice btw!
