I've got an Elite Offroad front bumper (+110 lb.), putting on a BudBuilt skid plate (+55 lb.) and eventually getting a Warn M8000s winch (+55 lb.) hanging off the front. So I'm looking for an appropriate coil length and rate to handle the +220 lb. while maintaining a true 3" lift.

Also, what Icon shocks work well with the OME Dakar leaf pack and what is the diameter? I've got problems with the OME nitrochargers scraping the leafs at full flex.

I would set you up with Icon front 2.5" resi or non resi, but with the 700lb spring. That will take the load of the added weight w/o having to preload the hell out of the coil to get 3".

For the rear we have some Custom build Icon 2.0 RR shocks that work with the 3" packs to get the full flex/travel. The OME nitro's are not even long enough to get this, which is odd cause they are made to pair with them ya know.

Here they are installed on another members Dakar pack

You really should not go to a cop to fix your bumper right after you hit someone and ran...

The perfect alibi.

So, yeah, Tim of Elite Offroad uses this scheme to mount the front lip of the skid:



And after the last run I found out I had bent one pretty badly. Badly enough, when I grabbed it, it snapped off:



Don't know if it can be re-welded or even worthwhile to re-weld it. Thinking there has to be a better and stronger way to latch in the front of the skid plate.

If I can't get this fixed soon it means I don't have skids for the next run.

I honestly don't get it. Tim uses 3/16" steel everywhere, makes the bumper beefy as shit then skimps on this part. Something that is going to take the full weight of the vehicle when the skid is bashing against a rock. Seriously considering a different bumper set at this point. Especially dealing with the weight issues.

Should be an easy fix. If your new skid uses the same tabs to mount then just add a few gussets while your at it.

Was thinking maybe snapping them all off and replacing with some angle steel.

How easy is it to touch up powdercoat?

Seriously considering renting a Mustang for a few days so I can completely tear down the interior of the truck and get all the much needed wiring done.

Nice break Tom. It's kinda why I go with 1/4" for most of my stuff now. Front bumper is still crappy until I get a sheet of 1/4" to make front and rear bumpers.

I think it is more due to shitty design. Weld a lip in there all the way across and something like that won't happen. Hopefully Cloudy will have time to weld something in before the run in August.

Hertz has a Camaro available. Would be fun...

Since I have to drop the bumper, I guess I should just run out and get the winch I always wanted at the same time. Really wreck my bank account.

And I can SAS the truck so I don't even need a skid plate. And stop in at Discount for some 35s.
