Only if you put a heavy plate bumper & winch on it.
886s will give you more than 3" and you don't want that.
885s will probably give you around 2.75"

Question Dakar spring questions

I ordered a set of standard CS047 Dakar springs and I'll need bushings for them. I might be able to press the bushings out of the OEM springs, but I'm going to try to sell them with the rest of the suspension I'm changing out. Downsouth Motorsports doesn't sell the required bushings, but Wheeler's Offroad has a Greasable Main Spring Eye Bushing Set. Is there a better bushing option?

Any extended brake line (hose) recommendations? I believe that my OR requires two for the rear, and I see that Wheeler's has some.

05 Access cab

What did you put up front & what did you get?

885's & Nitro Charger struts
Before
LF 20.0" RF 20.5"
After
LF 23.25 RF 23.5"

What did you put in back & what did you get?

Before
LR 21.5" RR 21.5"
After
LR 25.5" RR 25.5"

Are you running trail armor & how much lift did you loose or what did you do to regain/maintain lift?
No trail armor.. yet. planning on adding a rear bumper with swing out tire carrier.

Tire & wheel specs & rub or what you did to eliminate rub.
Are you still running a sway bar?

standard 265/70/16's on stock rims as of now. 285/70/17 on SCS Stealth 6's will be on in the next few weeks so I will edit this post when that happens.
No sway bar, truck drives great on road

I just did my OME and had the dakars installed. I purchased my lift and had it installed by Cruiser Outfitters ((801) 518-3937). They put in the new bushings, I am pretty sure he has them in stock.

I used the poly bushings from wheelers and was able to put them in by hand.

All Pro steel braided brake line front and rear, 2 front 2 rear.

Thanks for the responses. It was late and when I searched Wheeler's, I didn't realize that greasable bushing set was for 1st gens. I'll look around some more for a 2nd gen set that'll take grease.

So was thinking again... If I go with 886's will that put my DCLB over 3". I plan on doing a hidden winch up front (and really like the added shackle posts!). That won't be for a little while so would I be ok until I put that on? I know they would be stiff but that doesn't bother me.
