    I've ordered the aal from toytec and it didn't come with longer u bolts, will I need them?
    If so where can I buy some at a good old fashioned brick and mortar business.

    THe stock ones may be long enough....however ....I would not re-use them. Believe it or not, but u-bolts can 'stretch'. When you put them back on the truck, there's no quarentee they'll stay tight. Keep an eye on them or just got out and get new ones. It's cheap insurance.

    I've always been told to never re-use the u bolts. Spend the few bucks and be on the safe side and get some new ones.
