Looks good Matt.
You should talk to Josh about the 886s they were too stiff with all the stuff he had on his Taco.

I chatted with Josh about 886s when we were working on my suspension. He told me about them being stiff but I was thinking the 886s would be a good fit with the bumper, winch, and having the sway bar off. Plus I figure the stiffness would match the Dakar's stiffness

Anyone else have any input? 885s or 886s?

And thanks for posting the pics Randy!

Josh had bumpers, winch, skids & sliders with & without sway bar, but he only had an AC not a DC so who knows?

Josh changed his set up like 3 or 4 times. Nothing seemed to please him.

I have 886s. Just recently I added 1/2 top plates. I like em just fine.

Yeah, I forgot about the additional weight from the skids. I'll make my final decision next month when I order them but I think I'll be sticking with the 886s.

Relocated my hi-lift from the back of the bed to the passenger side and switched to a shorter handled shovel to accommodate my new corner tie down brackets thingys. They worked great this weekend securing the kayak on our way to the lake.

These will definitely help with securing my pontoon boat over the action packers on fishing trips.

Also made sure the Hi-lift was lubed and ready to go while I had it off. Check.

Dumped my exhaust after the axle this weekend.



I cleaned up the cut with a file after taking the picture.

Finished installing my Warn 8000 a couple weeks ago. I lengthened the control box cables to be able to stash it under my hood instead of on top of the winch.

Used it twice this weekend at Slickrock and it worked perfectly.
