    Bob, awesome build and cool pics. How is the ride with the 886? Did you go with those instead of the 885s because of the winch?

    once the winch and bumper went on the 885s didn't cut it..i had noticeable droop in the front

    you can definitely tell the stiffer ride with the 886 but they are necessary when you have the added weight up front...but it's a truck, not a cadillac..so i'd rather have proper height and clearance over softer ride

    You have a sick truck! I wish I would have had time in Moab to take a closer look.

    How do you like those All-Pro skids? I need to pick some up.

    so far bull proof...i used them a lot, and mean A LOT over the weekend

    the tcase skid paid off the most so far due to there not being a suitable skid from the factory protecting the tcase...i'll take some photos of the scraps they encountered in moab

    they mount up very easy too.

    i'd also look into the bud built skids...if i knew that their tcase skids had spacers to go over the exhaust cross-over, i probably would have gone with them. But the all-pros so far have done their job without a problem

    old ifs skid versus all-pro
