    No, I'm saying that they don't rub on my Gen 3. No idea what year the truck in question is.

    I had 1000lbs of sand in the back and the Dakars didn't flinch... Actually rode pretty nice. I wouldn't hesitate to haul a ton of stone or fill if I had to.

    Wow!
    Got my installation completed yesterday. Took a while with some unforseen delays. No biggie. I am impressed with the lift and ride. Not too agressive by any means. Toyota wake up and start making trucks that can do what trucks do!
    I'm not off work again til this weekend and will post pics and measurements at that time.

    My old leafs were shot, drivers side rear strut blown with melted plastic cover-might have been overheated from the off-road miles I put on it.

    Bwahahahahahaha TOYOTA factory suspension(served me well for many miles but not built to handle too much)
    :brianr:

    p.s.
    I've had some oat soda.

    And how is sits as of yesterday

    The front is no where near as high as I would have hoped. I think a spacer is needed of maybe something stiffer than 886 upfront. Out back every thing is great! I am thinking of getting the AAL for it. Has any one found a way to stop the squeaking from the rear leafs?

    Looks awesome! Nice wheel combination!

    Yeah, mine dropped down in the front with a plate bumper and skid. Thinking spacer as well.

    There are a lot of threads discussing the squeak. I think the general consensus is clean them and the lube them. I think others have used cut up pieces of bicycle tubes in between them too.

    edit: looks like pond liner instead of bicycle tubes
