Now, I'm not knocking the DJM Kit since it's excellent, but just noting a change. They sent us a 2010 kit to try out since they had not done any R&D on the 2011's yet and wanted us to see what the changes were. So far that's the only big hangup...but I'll keep everyone posted.

Unfortunately it seems like 2005-2010 u-bolts are hard to come by and I won't be able to get my hands on a set until the end of the week. Anyone got a better source than the local (and semi-local) dealer parts departments?

Most big rig shops can make you u-bolts however you want. I just took one of my old ones in and they made them the length I wanted. I think I paid $10 or $15 a ubolt with nuts and washers.
