Allpro or OME Dakar Leafs, Which ones?

I want to get a set of leafs for my 2010. I cant decide if I want Allpro standard duty springs or OME Dakars. I need help to decide.

Im in the same boat as you but didnt want to ask this question since there are probably a lot of threads on it, I dont want to do the research either so thank you!!! lol. I myself am leaning towards the AllPros, I do believe I read somewhere that they flatten out after a few years but not sure, havn't read anything about the Dakars yet.

Im running AP standard. Rides and flexes good. The only real weight i put on there was towing a 3000lb boat and it was fine. However, I was disappointed as I only got 2 1/4" lift out of them on my DC. Not sure if it was a bad batch but ended up adding a 1" block to get the rake I want. I wish I went with the expos.
The ARB is a bit stiffer ride. Dont know how they are offroad as Ive only ridden with one on street.

Not very sporting to fire on an unarmed opponent.

I'd go with Dakars, mainly to avoid giving All-Poo money (even though their leaf packs, which are actually made for them by another company (In Indonesia, in the case of my buddy who bought a set of Expos), are pretty good).

JA I know you hate Allpro, but you have to give them props for the leafs....I love my expos. I will let you all know how they do off rd after this weekend...

I was thinking about the expos too but allpros website says they add an extra inch of lift and I wont be towing or carrying too much maybe one in a while. I have read conflicting posts on here about how much lift people are getting from the standard and expos.

Expo pack

I just installed the Epos on the back of my truck.... still have the 265/70/16 Stock tires too!

You can definitely tell it is better than stock as far as the ride. Without weight it is a little stiff but I bought a truck not a limo so I don't mind it.

I know I'm the only 1st genner here in the midst of a 2nd gen question, but I love my AllPro Expos. They are stiff, but it's a truck. They ride great with some weight in the rear (sandbags in the winter, camping/hunting/fishing/firewood in the summer and fall). They flex nice, and I like them. My only complaints was that they developed a surface rust, and they do squeak a little bit. I sanded the factory paint off and painted it with some black rustoleum. I still love them though, and they haven't even truly "broken in".

do you plan on upgrading shocks as well? Is it necessarry due to the lift? Im also thinking about getting a leaf pack but am not sure if I would HAVE TO get longer shocks.

I believe if you call Alcan they will make you a leaf pack to get the desired height you want with the load you usually carry
