I haven't. I was having second thoughts about them because my truck is lowered its a DD and I carry 250-300lbs of tools daily. Just thinking how long they will last

250-300 is nothing. Folks have had FG leafs in their trucks for years and I've never heard of a single failure. I wouldn't go towing with them or filling the bed to the brim with lumber or gravel, but for daily use and occasional loads, hauling a motor every now and then, etc., it's not a big deal at all.

Heard as well FAF isn't making them right now, and JLP was working with another company to try and get sets made since FAF isn't being cooperative right now for anyone it seems.

They're a great mod. 80 lbs weight savings, and IMO the best ride as well, in addition to some drop out of them also.

I think they are a bit bouncy on the streets. But I have had them on my truck since JL first offered them. I used to drive my truck a lot. All my race passes have been driven to and no tracks closer than 3 hours from Connecticut. I did it for the weight savings. I think saving weight is the best way to ease the load/strain and improve performance with no (or even lessened) risk. With long bars the springs do less work then they would with ladders or no traction devices. I recommend them if you can get a set.
