    Already tested it out with a 25 gal oak tree, 7 gal magnolia, 10 bags of mulch, 2 bags of peat moss, and some flowers. Not a heavy load by any means but road VERY well and no sagging! :yay:

    Load test #2

    6 bags of concrete @ 60 lbs/each = 360 lbs
    6 bags of Manure @ 40 lbs/each = 240 lbs
    10 bags top soil @ 25 lbs/each = 250 lbs
    1 bag potting soil @ 40 lbs = 40 lbs
    Misc other stuff @ 15 lbs = 15 lbs

    Total = ~900 lbs

    Leaves were straight but no sagging. Bed was about 1/2" lower so front and rear were level. Ride was very nice. No bounce on the bumps. Very controlled.

    Not bad, I'm impressed and don't miss the stock leaves at all! Highly recommend the OME with the Dakars.

    No trim packer? You sure? It's just a small (I think brass) ring at the bottom of the spring on the drivers side to prevent "Taco Lean". Did you get them assembled or put the springs on the shocks yourself? I wish I could afford sliders & skids from Eric, they are next on my list also.

    none so far. I did have one issue while driving some curvy roads when it was stock though. I'll report if I have any after the lift

    Positive there is not a trim packer. I assembled them myself. However, if I decide to add skid plates (3 from eric are I think 120-160 lbs), sliders (~120 lbs?) I may upgrade to the 886 coils. When I do this I'll put on the trim packer and would like to get a 1/4" toytec or wheelers "lift enhancer" to get an additional 1/2" out of the front. Oh yeah, and I want an ARB bumper:)

    If you go 886's you should not add top plate spacers , you will get 3" with the coils alone

    Looks great Asolo!
    Hoping to have my OME/Dakars on sometime in the near future. All the parts are on the floor taunting me. I'm torn on my next tire size. Currently have 265/70/17 that still have decent tread life. I'm inbetween going to 265/70 or 275/70. My local place has some Cooper ST in 275/70 for $178 each. I've run them before and love them. Just don't 'need' tires yet. Trying to resist the instant gratification urge.
    Glad to hear you like the Dakars. My crap for hauling saggy rear springs were what made me actually pull the trigger on a lift.
