I thought about it. I asked you what color you used. Decided to keep them and to really match the front DV8 skid. I had to remove the DV8 so I could get to the drivers side LCA bolt.The front ones were even more fun. Worth it though. Also, I did paint mine to match the Rancho stuff, so I'm kind of glad you didn't.

How is the Cricket? I've been eying it, or an Opus lite. I need something that my 12yo dog can climb into, which eliminates many of the RTT campers.Went to the UP over the weekend, pulled the camper and stayed at the KOA in St. Ignace. Took the ferry to Drummond island and hit part of the South Marblehead loop Jeep badge of honor trail. We came across a motorcycle that got stuck, pulled him out, then followed him back to the road to ensure his safety.
At this point I would not recommend Taxa Outdoors or any of their trailers, mine came with a bad axle brand new and the replacement axle failed on this trip which was the first trip since getting it replaced. Their customer service is very slow to respond, if they do respond, and honestly not worth the money they want for them. I had to reach out to Lippert for the axle replacement as Taxa would not respond or acknowledge the issue after several emails.How is the Cricket? I've been eying it, or an Opus lite.

You remove the 4 factory bolts and reuse them. The left bracket goes on drivers side over axle and connects. The right one is passenger side. The lower bracket goes over backside of diff. Its easy to install once you get lined up. I had to remove mine to get to the LCA bolt to remove and to be able to use torque wrench. The 2 brackets go over axle and connects bottom and top of skid plate.Is installation of the front skid plate merely a matter of loosening bolts where required? I like to review installation docs prior to purchasing accessories like this one, but only the manual for the rear diff skid plate is evident on the DV8 site. TIA.
Ugh. A few folks using Jack for leverage. This thread has some ideas.I have 300lb Impact wrench and cheater pipe for socket wrench and neither will back front LCA bolt loose. The socket and cheater pipe removed the rear LCA very easy. WTF is the deal ? The rear loosened right off with cheater pipe on wrench.
OK, I will try using my jack then next time. Right now my side is killing me of trying with the socket and wrench with cheater pipe. Killed my out of shape Jeeper Ass. The rear ones with cheater pipe as you know turned right loose. WTFUgh. A few folks using Jack for leverage. This thread has some ideas.
