Drove the 2011, looked at the '98. Need money to finish painting the replacement door, so other than starting it from time to time to keep the battery charged, I just look at it.

Today I chucked some LED lights up on the roof. Bush driving at night can be very dangerous in Australia because of the Kangaroos. They are often as big as a human and can do some real damage. So the lights will help me see them at night .

First are the lights sitting there.



Next is them on



And here is a quick showing of the working at night



The same spot as above

How can I fix this. I was strongly suggested the leaf spring helper kit from a buddy. Any suggestions?

lol!
well, i'd say it looks like its holding up pretty good for 1800lbs of feed.

i guess the only options are:
helper kit,
AAL,
new HD springs,
coil over shocks (easiest to install IMO)

Coilovers are your suggestion for the rear of his truck? easiest to install?

AAL is the way to go.
