I've got the AllPro APEX Series. Couldn't be happier with my purchase.

Of course! although I've weeded out some of the problems like the HD steering. and I did a bit of clearance work on my inner CV's so I hopefully am not rubbing my shaft anymore

I put on allpro supplied "double Teflon" lined upper and lower uniballs. Yeah the Teflon had already started peeling out before I reached 6000 miles. I understand this isn't really an Allpro problem...but seriously how do they wear so fast? this is all street driving.

All the allpro supplied uniballs and Heims are made by FK.. our lower uniballs are the same as my buddies uppers that are used on his class 1 buggy that we are racing this upcoming weekend. Infact all of his hardware are FK uniballs and heims .

I see more road salt than you do. After three winters, the All-Pro powder coat is holding up fine except in areas where I've scraped it on terrain. Just got to wash it often.

We have a mixture of crap on the roads over winter but mostly gravel, OP is just a province west of me so should see similar results. Another guy in my town has an all-pro bumper and he has no powder coat left either after just over a year. Just throwing some relevant information out there.

Yeah, I've seen the All Pro powder coating on trucks that see less road time than mine and the powder coating just flakes off. Not comparable to ARB in that regard at all.

IMO ARB is hideous. It is. When ordering my AllPro I called both AllPro and Demello and liked the service of AllPro better.

Mine (front and rear) are just rattlecanned and I couldn't be happier.
