    Good afternoon, I searched but came up empty.

    I’m wondering if the Gen 2 leafs will fit on a Gen 1? Not quite ready to do Deaver at the moment, and found a pair of 2019 Gen 2 takeoffs with 8,000 miles on them. They’re in much better shape than my Gen 1 leafs with 130,000 miles on them. I can’t find anything online that says the leafs are different, but when looking at aftermarket leaf packs they are clearly marketed as Gen 1 or Gen 2 fittment.

    just wondering if the OEM leafs are interchangeable between generations? Thanks for any help/advice.

    -David

    I wouldn't think so. The Gen 2 weighs a lot less so those leafs should be softer.

    If you call literally any one of the major shops that does a lot of Raptor work (long list) and ask nicely you should be able to get a set of Gen 1 take offs for the cost of shipping.

    Also post here in WTB and in the Facebook groups. Plenty of guys may just give you their takeoffs if you ask nicely.

    The Gen 2 leafs are shorter.
    The Gen 2 guys are replacing them just like the Gen 1 guys did.
    They suck.

    Save your money a little longer and get the leafs that belong on the truck.

    Thank you all, I’ll hold off on running the wrong parts and save a few extra paychecks for a proper set of deavers.

    side note, anyone know about Atlas? How do they measure up to deaver? Pricing looks a few hundred less compare to the deaver counterpart.

    thanks for the input.

    I would stick to Deavers or Icon.
