    Yes I did. I had to shear off the bolt with the castle nut on it because it was so rusted up. Other then that, it was a breeze :)

    I watched the installation video and it talked about removing parts in the engine compartment to slide the bolt out. Did you have to?

    Are the Dakar packs fairly soft on-road, unloaded?

    Wow, those dakars must be pretty soft. You used to have some rake..now you're squatting a little.

    Have any pics of the rear flexed? The 5100's limit travel of the dakars at all?

    I haven't done any extreme wheeling yet but here are some pics when I went to flex it out with a buddy. This is with 32's. Sorry for the cellphone pics. Its all I had on me at the time.

    Some people don't like the Dakar's and complain that they don't support much weight well but I have a camper shell on the back of mine now with them, and I think it rides and sits perfectly :) If anything I could get their AAL to strengthen the packs up a bit. Go for it man.
