    So there’s an option for U-bolts, if installing these on a stock pack, do you need the U-bolts? The instructions say install the included U-bolts, but then they’re optional, so I’m just a little confused. Thanks!

    U-Bolts are likely optional because many will be doing a U-Bolt Flip at the same time. Other will not be so they will need replacement U-Bolts for their installation.

    Got mine installed today. Was fairly simple. And gave me back a slight rake in the rear. Picture looks level but the rear is about 0.5in or so higher than the front.

    Just ordered up mine! Beyond pumped. I've been stashing parts in my shop to tackle the build all at once and this is the last piece I need (besides time).

    I’m pulling the trigger on these today. What’s everyone’s experience with additional load capacity? I have a shell and carry a lot of tools or camp gear frequently.

    I have the Westcott lift. Had the block in the rear. Decided I wanted a little bit more height for when I am hauling my tools.
    I installed the headstrong add a leafs tonight and it went well. Super easy.

    I removed the Westcott block and removed the overload leaf.

    Seems to ride pretty well just the small amount I drove it.

    Does your HS 1.5 AAL work with stock 3rd gen TRD/OR dampers?

    Our 3-leafs are designed to work with stock tacoma 2nd/3rd gen leafs packs. It will work with stock shocks (and after market shocks as well, at least the ones we carry)

    PM or email us if you have need anything. sales@headstrongoffroad.com

    Can you confirm your 3 leaf AAL, with the additional 1/2” rear spacers, will work with factory FoX TRD Pro rear shocks without doing anything else?

    Yes. It will work. You should look into getting the extended UBolts as well if you don't have one already.

    As an alternative option with similar lift height, does the Dakar Medium leaf pack also work with OEM Fox Rear shocks?

    We usually recommend the extended shocks with those. PM or email us your specifics and we can go from there.
