    Oh wait , I assumed you had a 2nd gen , you'll need to cross reference your leaf pack part # with the replacement clip application guide

    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.

    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

    I heard the kangaroos that assemble the leaf springs are on strike because the koala bears that twist the coil springs make .10 more per hour.

    885 are the old ones which were replaced by the 885x. Everyone who orders gets 885x nowadays.
