Install winch, install the AAL, extend rear brake line, new rear bumper, finish/revise the subwoofers (there's a reason there aren't pics of that part of the audio install-it's not done and looks like shit!), fix the fender flares, maybe put them back on, maybe have Jerry at BAMF build me a roof basket mounted on the shell, add more layers of Herculiner (shit' weak!), install my clear corner lights and instal the turn signals in them better (currently ghetto rigged and one is out), sound deaden the roof (only area I didn't do, make better speaker rings for the mids, and GO WHEELING!!!

Your topper is EXACTLY, to-the-tee what I want! I'm stoked they do custom builds.
We should meet up, any friends I have with trucks are scured to even scuff their tires...
882's with ARB bullbar, 4 corner nitro sports, 80 series med/heavy nitros in the rear.
So you're saying the D6XL was more comfortable with the old Dakars and a little too stiff on new ones?
The topper might not make a big difference, they actually don't weight that much. I could lift the weight myself without too much difficulty, and I'm not big. It's just awkward to handle alone so two people is a good idea. Pretty much any good shell is custom built, they don't tend to stock them.
I need to verify which OME shocks I have. I think they are med all around.

I would believe that. For the moment though, I'll try the AAL as I currently spend more time hauling heavy loads on mild surfaces than needing max articulation on the trail. I searched the D6XL and it seemed people had plenty of flex with the D6XL un Moab etc.
