    22.5” center hub to fender would be 1.5” lift. The stock TRD OR is 21”.

    It’s better the way you have it though, looks good and probably rides great.

    Even with coilovers I only go 1.5-1.75” as well

    Nice. Post, I’ve always been curious but too afraid to ruin my back end. Most I ever went was 1000lbs

    Yea mine also started a bit lower. I was 20.5 to start in the front :/ and I added steel rocks sliders which confuses things a bit.

    The Taco lean is also pretty strong on my truck and the other side is closer to 23

    A full tank of gas could cause that too

    Total weight of the vinyl I shipped was 1600 lbs. the Dakar’s took it well. I only drove it like 10 minutes so I figured it was ok. Here’s a video of them dropping it into my truck’s bed. I also measured the rear end after removing all the vinyl and it went back up to previous height.

    Lol nice. The HDs are pretty sweet. I use to have them but took a leaf out (3rd from top) and the ride is better, but my max load is like 800lbs until my aftermarket bump stops are resting on the frame

    Yea part of me is considering long term to take out the 3rd leaf and add air bags when I load up my full overland rig.

    I dunno, I’m on the fence with Dakars. I have a year and 3 months on mine. They are the HDs. They are beating up my shackles. Everything is tight and my shackle hangers are not bent. I have concern they are already worn and need for replacement.

    I just checked mine out and don’t see anything like that. But I wonder if it’s what looks like are extended 5100’s? Maybe they weren’t designed for the extended droop?
