    Hello,

    I am selling my Deaver +3 HD (custom arched for 500lbs in the bed). I sold my Gen 1 and got a Gen 2. Deaver sent me an extra leaf spring without the leafs, so buyer will get that as well. The springs have been coated in AMSOIL HD multiple times. Thus, the springs have very little rust on them. I am buying the same set up for my Gen 2. I am asking $950. Located in Jacksonville, Florida (32258). I am not shipping, but I am willing to drive if you cover my gas.

    Damnit, that's not a bad drive for me.
    GLWS, if I don't cave in.
    How many miles on them?

    Hello,
    I'm in SoFL now and may be traveling up soon....So, I am interested on your offer. I have a couple of questions though and they are bc of the lack of first hand experience with upgrading the suspension on the beast. I do have the original stock suspension and Im at about 116K and due for an upgrade. Like some have found out, the loaded/loadup bed and towing on a stock setup is less than worthy for a truck of this size, but I digress due to the "touchy" opinions on that. However, please do not hesitate to write me a full thought process why you went with these and please tell me as much of why and opinions you have towards this particular choice. I promise I will not judge, its for my consumption and my way of laying out a course of action and choices I make towards a given task. Thanks for your time. And lastly, I do have to ask...price? I would be willing to drive up to you so, ¿negotiable?

    JL

    (Don't know how to Pm on the forum yet) still looking?

    30k miles. I bought them two years ago. Nothing wrong with them, I just wanted a Gen 2. Best suspension upgrade out there.

    Tiger’s sports bar is one of my favorite places in the state. Lol I was trying to get down to Jupiter before all this COVID-19 madness, but I wasn’t able to.



    I got your PM and will message you back through that.

    Just curious why you removed them before you sold your Gen 1? I sold mine with all of my mods still attached...

    LOL why would I give the dealership/next owner mods for free? A dealership could care less what mods you have on your truck. I spent close to the entire month of March returning my truck back to stock as I took off my Rogue front and rear suspension, bumpers, bed rack, lighting, and so on. Now I have a nice stack of cash to buy new goodies for Ms. Jenny :)

    I never lose money by trading in a used vehicle to a dealer. Regardless of how much they offer you, they always make money on your trade. You will make far more selling it privately with all of the parts still intact.
