Got some explorer leafs. The plan for now is to install those and remove the factory lift block.

Ya i couldnt find em either. I read that you can just take long grade 8 bolts of the same diameter, grind the heads till theyre round, then install them and cut off the excess length. Luckily the ones on my explorer leafs are in good shape. Im just gonna flip and reuse.

Explorer leafs are in! Removed the factory 1.25" lift blocks and I still gained 1 inch in height.

Looks good! How does it ride?

Btw I did find the correct center pin (7/16") after visiting a local spring shop.

Did some dirt biking then went and got my truck real stuck. Probably shouldnt have attempted this hole in 2wd with the bikes in the back haha. Luckily the local Ranger guys were able to come help :icon_thumby:

Had a meetup with some guys in the BC Ranger Club. This is a first for us in the Okanagan area. Went well but we need to recruit more members. Beautiful view, great weather, and friendly people :icon_thumby: Knox Mtn Park, Kelowna BC Canada
