Just put my Meso minimalist fob in to use. Installed my total chaos bed stiffeners. I picked up some KBVoodoo bed rails with tonneau cover brackets off of marketplace. Looking to how I can mount some xbull recovery boards in the bed. And next I will probably be getting a smitty built rtt.

I pulled off my rear bumper covers or caps that are chrome from the factory. I sanded them down with 400 grit and painted with primer and then painted with a black bed liner. They are drying now. Hoping to install later this week. Should look good with the black and the bed liner should hold up a lot better than plasti dip while off-roading.

Then greased all the bushings and added bicycle inner tube rubber to high friction areas...

Then added an extra D29xl leaf to make my 7 leaf Dakar HD pack an 8 leaf extra HD pack.

Then reassembled them with a new grade 8 center pin with an 8mm Allen key head.

Adding the leaf like this is supposedly an approved addition/modification from OME. Hopefully this will help with some of our sag on longer, loaded down trips.

Nice! I just did that with my Icon RXT springs. Little maintenance and they are good as new

Nice work. Did the same, had a hell of a time tracking down interleaf liners, and shims
