    Relentless front and rear bumpers, Warn M-8000S Winch, Relentless RockSliders, bigger tires, bed cover RTT ... and more big changes in the works.
    So I broke one of the rear OME springs....I am hard on equipment, so it not unexpected.

    New springs are on order, same springs in fact. I looked at the allpro springs, but the OME are just cheaper and worked great for the many years I had them. If you go wheeling, stuff gets broken.

    Airbags are also on order. The load on the rear of the truck changes so much, that a single strength rear spring was just to variable in the rear height. From empty to tent, to tent with gear, to trailer(s) to bikes. The rear was up and down 3 to 4 inches with different common loads. Air bags should allow that to be adjusted to always ride the right height. FireStone ride-rite bags (2304) with DayStar baskets should allow for full droop too. We will see how this setup performs.

    As a side benefit, since I plan to air the bags separately, I will be able to level left to right at various camp sites with the airbags. No more need to stacking rocks or carrying leveling blocks.....I hope.
