    Did the Muzzy ones work on a Tacoma. I painted mine because a different set I bought were too long.

    Ok. Glad to know it's not just me. It's more of an annoyance than anything (see: OCD).

    Did some flex testing and some leaf adjustments. Running the old CS version of the Dakars, and recently just got some Fox Resis w/Cd adjusters. Was running 4 leafs with 1 overload, and it rode like a lowered honda in the rear. Switched some leafs around today, and now just running 5 regular leafs and no overloads. Rides like a pillow without the stiff overload and everything is working perfect together now.
    Flex photo is pre adjustment, was seeing where the bumpstop, shocks, and resi's were at clearence wise. Measured out to 26" under the tire with the forklift, not bad for some bolts ons and being used to 40"+ of flex in my old wheelers.20210219_165746.jpg
    After photo, I think Im at like 1-1.5" of lift in the rear with some weight in the bed with 33s. And yes I'll get around to painting the leafs someday.20210219_211715.jpg

    the problem I foresee with the little stickers is not everyone sees in colour... and that's why I used the touchscreen!

    You may find that running Dakar’s without overload leaves will wear them out in a hurry. You’ll get the dreaded W shape.
    I haven’t tried re-arching them, not sure how well the would take to that

    is that a long box - - -> off road - - - > double cab? OR is that just a TRD Sport with an "off road decal" on it?

    Guessing you are Canadian. Sucks that our friends to the north can’t get the DCLBOR. I know I love mine!

    edit: meh, I haven’t posted a pic of my truck in a while, so here’s one I never posted before. :thumbsup:

    These ones are very well worn in already, got them used from a guy that ran them for a couple years. I will just add another regular leaf or two in if they start w'ing, they should hold me off until I do sua.

    i instill mine, with the right tool it won’t take long. Till I broke the bracket bolt. Fml.
    Hand tie those bracket bolts, don’t even use electric impact drive.

    I heard Eibach really good but little bit expensive.

    When you say flush, are you asking about the bottom edge of the tailgate? Or the sides? It does sit flat across the entire tailgate. I love it, especially when it's holding an ice cold brewski for me. :D

    The switches are all the same depth. I think the after market switch panel just makes the top ones sit proud of the rest. Happy to take some more photos if you want to see different angles.

    We’ve got a cvt in a 2020 rav4 Xse. I don’t like it, when you put your foot down it feels like you’re slipping the clutch constantly. Toyota CVT doesn’t change gears (unless you put it over to ‘S’ flappy paddle mode) you don’t feel any change in revs at all from 0-80mph (sits at around 3,500rpm I’d guess when you put your foot down).

    On my 2017 added the passenger side outer door lock/unlock sensor - OEM electric tailgate lock - wired the fog lights to operate with both the low and high beams on.
