    I cleaned up and painted my Dakars and @ARCHIVE shackle flip today.

    I changed the rear Dakar bushings in October just before heading to Moab. I figured the front rubber bushings were shot as well, but I was out of time and didn’t have time to deal with pressing them out.

    I was right. They were toast. I pressed out the old rubber bushings yesterday and put new poly bushings up front too.

    I thought the shackle flip bushings were good, but discovered one was torn today. I texted Eric of Archive, and he’s shipping me replacement bushings tomorrow.

    I used @Chux ‘s idea and slathered the back side of the shackle flip brackets in anti-seize, to hopefully keep rust at bay.

    Disc brake kit is from SOS Concepts. Stephen at ECGS requested that I send it to them to be sure it would work with the axle. That’s the non-parking brake version. It was $700 I believe

    I wonder how much different the parking brake version is. I still can’t find it on their website(sos concepts).

    I already have wires, relays, and switches for rear facing lights. I used one set for the LED bar, which, honestly, is enough.

    But, as I said, I already have the wires run for another set. So, I put these pods on the frame. There were already holes there from when I removed the OEM spring hangers.

    I’ll probably end up aiming them off to the side a little. I know they’re vulnerable in that spot, but they were $15 a pair on Amazon. I’m not too worried about it.
