Bob, awesome build and cool pics. How is the ride with the 886? Did you go with those instead of the 885s because of the winch?

once the winch and bumper went on the 885s didn't cut it..i had noticeable droop in the front

you can definitely tell the stiffer ride with the 886 but they are necessary when you have the added weight up front...but it's a truck, not a cadillac..so i'd rather have proper height and clearance over softer ride

so far bull proof...i used them a lot, and mean A LOT over the weekend

the tcase skid paid off the most so far due to there not being a suitable skid from the factory protecting the tcase...i'll take some photos of the scraps they encountered in moab

they mount up very easy too.

i'd also look into the bud built skids...if i knew that their tcase skids had spacers to go over the exhaust cross-over, i probably would have gone with them. But the all-pros so far have done their job without a problem

old ifs skid versus all-pro
