    On my 2007, my springs were very squeaky. Lubricants like WD40 worked for a short time until it rained. My eventual solution was to put pieces of a treadmill belt in-between the leafs .

    On my 2013 I've never had a squeak

    I've had Dobinsons on my truck for about two weeks. I've got the heavy weight springs with a fiberglass cap and DECKED system in the back. ARB front bumper and Warn 95xp winch will be added next week. The suspension is excellent. A HUGE improvement over the stock suspension before. I highly recommend Dobinsons. I got mine at Main Line Overland. MLO uses Dobinsons as their own brand and has changed the colors to black/red.

    I helped my bro in law install Dobinsons bushing/leafs a few weeks ago, he took off his medium duty Dakars because they were squeaky as all get out and he tried everything to stop it. For the record I've had 2 sets of Dakar CS047R and have had no issues with squeaking. I wouldn't hesitate to use Dobinsons, the quality looks great and my bro in law is happy with them....

    What box are you using? I'm going back and forth between the 10w1 and 10w3 myself.

    My softopper finally came in last night. Took a few hours to install by myself. Not bad and I’m excited :D

    Some really cool shit
    I like JL sub. I have this one for my access cab. Should have gone with a bigger one, but really, my biggest issue is I need more power. Plus this one fit the space just right.

    I have the JL 10TW3-D4 in a box I built and it’s great! Also have the JX500, plenty of power and great bass. Went with the C1 components front and rear, very happy with the system

    I went with the box from Supercrewsound. A lot of folks here go with Mr. Marv boxes, but he's at times difficult to get a hold of and he's backed up. The supercrewsound box was priced right and got within a few days. I went with the 10w1 because it's made for smaller enclosures and the box I used was sealed. The 10w3 is used in the stealthbox and I'm sure it's high quality. I imagine you can't go wrong with either.
