Def get a list before you start if you can find one. I wish I would have wrote down all the tools I used because we need a list on a sticky or in the OP. I found myself going to auto zone 3 times for different sized sockets (larger ones, extended ones) that were not in my huge socket set.

I just received my Dakar leafs yesterday and noticed that three of these plastic liners (forgive me I have no idea what they're called) are cracked/damaged.

I searched many photos of Dakar leafs on trucks and all of them had these same pieces fully intact.

Is this something I should be concerned with? Like I said, between the two leaf packs there are three of these things that are damaged.

Not a big issue especially if the leaf side is still there

What did you put up front & what did you get?
887's, Nitros, gave me just under 3".
What did you put in back & what did you get?
Dakars, Nitros, gave me just over 3".

No, but I plan on running sliders, front and rear plate bumpers and skids at some point.
Tire & wheel specs & rub or what you did to eliminate rub.

Yes, but debating removal.

Anyone have any input on the 90000 vs the 90021 shocks? Which gives a better ride? If I'm not going to be doing a ton of wheeling which would be a better choice?

Going to go ahead and pull the trigger today. Full kit, 885's, spacers, packer, Dakar's, and I am going to add a shackle flip to the rear (probably a Relentless Fab u-bolt flip as well).
Question about the u-bolt kit: how long of bolts do I need for the flip, with the Dakar's? I am going to order from Toytec, I was going to see if I could substitute longer bolts if I need to.

888's. 405 mm spring = 88.9 mm additional lift 3.5" (Theoretical)

So is the excess coil length similar to using a top plate spacer in regards to The 2x relationship? ie: 1/4" top plate nets you 1/2". Could some one explain this to me, otherwise Im going to continue think of it as Taco Voodoo
I am almost tempted to replace my 885's and top plate spacers with 887's. I am not realy a fan of spacer lifts.

Anyone already tried the 888's? However it might be too much of a lift for the 4wd, unless they settle down as they all do.

888's are too long and my 885x's haven't settled more than 1/4" in over 4 years
