Good to know! What's your rear setup? Also, I know I've seen it before, but what size tires are you running? Do you have a diff drop installed? I've got one laying around I might install with the 883s

im on a worn out spring pack with an AAL and crap 5100s. making a new leaf pack in a couple weeks though. the rear has never been as smooth or responsive as the 883s. i will say i do run the older and softer OME N91 shock rather than the new sports so that might help in my case.

i do not have a diff drop as they dont truly drop the diff, only rotate it IMO. its something to consider if you have vibration issues, which i do not. i recently changed my tires. had 235/85/16s but now run a 255/75/17. both are classified as 32" tires, although the 255s are C rated compared to the old E rated 235s, thus smoothing the ride a bit in themselves.

Solid, thanks for the input. Just read on TTORA someone had the 883s sans armor, and it shook everything loose in their dash/ cab. Have you experienced excess rattling, or does this happen to you?

Thinking of installing my 883s + 10mm lift enhancer tomorrow!

they were firm but once broken in they really smoothed out. i dont have any real rattles either. like i said before, the shocks could make the difference. everyone also has different preferences. i really like how my front rides.

This was a fun thread to read through.

Still haven't pulled the trigger on a lift yet. I've been going back and forth between OME 881 + Dakar, or 882 + Dakar + AAL or shackles.

Your pictures with the 881 looked like a decent height, but in later posts you said it sagged too much for your liking. Can you guess as to how much vs your pictures?

Thanks man.
Measured fenders again today: 37" in the front and 40.5" in the rear. I guess they didn't sag too much, but I was really stoked on the pre-broken in height haha. Either that, or I'm just used to my height and am ready for a bit of a boost. Also, I've got a monster rake right now, but it performs so well with a full bed loaded on trails, I don't mind it.

Planning a Pacific NW trip in the upcoming months.

Now in the market for a camper shell and racks for my girlfriend and my surf boards and bikes. Going to build a sleeping platform and under storage in the bed.

Might be selling the toolbox with gas can mounts to fund the trip pending interest...

I've never been to the PNW, but I'm stoked! Places on the list, Tahoe, Redwoods, Portland, Spokane, BC, Glacier National Park, Boise..etc.

Will keep updated as plans develop.

Awesome! Will do. Will most likely make a thread, and see if anyone wants to meet up and hit a trail along the way.

Honestly, we're scouting areas to move to, something like a smaller town with plenty of outdoor activities at our disposal. We're sick of the grind of SoCal.

You'll like Coeur d alene a lot better than Spokane it's only 30 miles east of Spokane too.

Keep me posted!

Don't forget that in the coming months, temps will drop and chances of running into snow increases!

Funny you say that, one of my buddies I met in Utah is from there. Yeah, we realize the weather situation, would like to take off within this month if possible!

If we don't get out before the winter, we've got a while to wait for the snow to melt, my sanity can't wait that long!

Thanks for the input guys!

Dates are locked in with work: October 6th- 13th! Planning on stopping by Tahoe for a night, then somewhere in the Redwoods, Oregon for a night or so, Washington for a night or so, then up to Vancouver, and over then down through Montana, and possibly down through Idaho & Utah, then back to LA.

Either make a big loop like that, or head up, over to MT, then back to the coast and down.

off to

Haha, I know Monte, if CO (my home state) was in the plans we would definitely be going through WY. We probably won't have time to hit up Utah, and will probably only see Couer d'Alene if we make it to Spokane.

Topper hunting is in full season. Trying to lock something down this weekend and start to build my sleeping platform. The guy is sending me pics of the Century tomorrow morning, most likely while I'm at 2 different shell shops hoping for a used one. The Century isn't carpeted, it is water tight, and it has a dome light. He is looking to sell it for $175. Might be too good to pass up :unsure:

This is what I'd like, but new is pretty spendy. Turns out to be just shy of $1300 with tax and carpeted interior.

Getting pretty annoyed by my driveline vibes, might order some axle shims to counter that prior to the trip.

List of items pending to prep truck for trip:

Herculiner

finally get around to wiring cb, it's been mounted for almost 2 ys now..

relocate diff breathers

spray all my rusty parts (sliders & where they mount to parts of frame)

oil change and inspection

build sleeping platform
