    Tom Woods driveshaft. TRD short throw shift kit. TRD exhaust. AFE Stage II intake. CBI Bumpers front and rear. Warn 8000i winch/ synthetic line. OME 3" lift w/ dakar springs and 886 coils. ATO Front skid. ARE MX cap. Trail Team FJ wheels. Cooper Discoverer ST 265/75-16 C tires. Diff breather relocation mod.
    I think they are a good idea. No more squeaking, smooth ride.
    Here is the best pic I have of the springs.

    lots of guys here have them and there are a TON of pics if you search...

    i personally have had the original ones, TSB leafs, and now the OME leafs. i'll leave it at this...i wish i would have done this immediately after i got the truck. loaded and unloaded the ride is drastically improved.

    The OME leafs kick arse! The only issue is squeeking, but there is a sticky that fixes this problem.

    ^^^^^ Hey Doc ,

    doesn't the squeak from the Dakars come from the bushings and not the leaves themselves ?

    I have no idea. I've greased them between the leafs on the initial install and the squeek didn't develop right away. I've been too lazy and busy to try this again. If the grease between the leafs don't work the 2nd time, I'll try something with the bushings...
