    In the past some guys have posted their route as a just encase something happened. This way they could identify some helpful folks along the way.

    Where did you get new leafs? I think my 74 Fury will need them eventually and I’d like to hear what worked well for others.

    Nice! Enjoy the trip in your own personal cloud, just like sitting at home on a nice comfy sofa.

    I got mine from “Springs and Things” for my 77 NYB. Rep’s name is Laura. Very helpful. I’ll forward info if you’d like. Bout $495 for the full set w/bushings. I went further and got shackles, axle bolts and spring isolators. Soup to Nuts. I’ll install after Carlise.

    I echo what 75LandYacht said exactly. Laura is awesome. She talked me into the 6 leaf vs the standard 5. I also got new hardware (ubolts front eye bolt bushings etc) highly recommend. Total shipped was about $500-$600

    Very cool, that’s where I’ll go as well then. Did you install them yourself? If so, was it manageable?

    Negative I have a local Mopar shop that takes care of me. I added to much to the car before my trip to do alone
