    PSU Taco85 for the write up on the Dakar springs and OZ-Tfor linking it to every thread on the subject.

    And a very huge thanks to nOrth that not only has an awesome write up of his build but answered all my questions when I asked them.

    Hey thanks Ian. Yeah I know I have drooled over your truck many a times lol. I am really happy the way it turned out. More mods to come hopefully but itching to test it out on a CT4WD run soon.

    I love the way your truck looks and I like seeing all your trail pic's. I GOT to get out to Nelson one of these days. I think there may be some trail runs near Cranbrook this year and hopefully we can meet then if we both go.

    Very Nice truck. I am tossing around the OME and the Toytec lifts. Unsure as of yet. I have an 06 access cab 4x4
    How do you find the 285/75r16?
    Any rubbing?
    I am running a 265/75r16. I am contemplating keeping them when I do the lift. Unsure how the stock toyota wheel will be that is all.

    Hi Kev.

    Thanks for the compliment. Yes there was some rubbing and I trimmed a little in the front. I have not taken it out on the trail yet but I feel there might be some more trimming to be done. I do not think you will have any rubbing if you stick with the 265/75R/16. Good luck with what you decide and looking forward to seeing the finished product.

    Yeah that is too bad Ian it would of been nice for you to make it. However we will see each other in the summer for sure. Hope to be out in that area if things work out.

    Thanks I like your truck as well and I think these wheels on there would look sharp:D I really do like them but I did learn this past weekend you need to get in there to clean them out lol. I did not do a great job first time but I do love them. I think actually putting the hose in the holes will do the job.

    Also forgot to mention that since I was wheeling and plan to do more I took the caps off the wheels. More convenient and I like the look better.
