    Just be thankful you were getting some type of gas mileage instead of 0 mpg stuck on the side of the road with blown sidewalls with those durafails.

    Do you have the D43XL extra leafs with your Dakars? Do you carry much of a load at all times? I'm in the south Denver Metro area... looking for some demo rides before I buy parts for my rusted frame rebuild.

    I will enjoy my (slightly elevated) MPG while I can...

    (Maybe I am just enjoying the much nicer ride of virgin tires...)

    No extra leafs with the Dakars but I think you're going the right direction with the Allpros with the weight you are carrying. I rarely hit those loads. Have 885's/5100's up front. Welcome to check it out. In the Highlands.

    Stuff. Also things.
    I’m running Expos and 5125s until I relocate the rears, but I have Kings up front.

    @YamaDirtrider HAD All Pro rear with Fox 2.0's I believe. He has Dakar's in the rear now. King's up front.

    I had the AllPro and Icon and went to the EL096R and Icon. I typically have 450 to 550 in my bed but can reduce it to 250-275ish (bed empty just armor and fixed accessories) and still enjoy the ride. Running Icon extended travel in the front.

    I really think he's going to want to get a ride in a 1st gen to have any chance of a fair comparison.

    Were you running the AllPro Expos, or standard AllPro rear leafs? Any particular reason you went to the OME rear leafs? Icons or other performance coilovers aren't happening for me at this time.

    I have access to about 1000 acres of typical range land that I survey. It is about 45 minutes from C-470 / I-25, maybe a bit less. I can't really organize a TW day-in-the-dirt rally... but if a couple / few guys were able to come out and let me compare / contrast... I think I can justify that I was on a recon / scouting trip for GPS basesite locations... ;)

    That's a good point. But a 2nd gen with the lighter (softer) OME front coils with rear AllPro Expos might be a decent comparison point if nothing else is available. At this point, I'm pretty sure I want OME front (882's) with the AllPro Expo / Fox 2.0 rear unless someone starts waving a huge redflag. I'm open to going Alcan's if I can make $$ work.

    Squeaky... if your choice was: Allpro Expo with Fox 2.0 rear shocks --OR-- Alcan custom rear leaf with Bilstein 5125s (and Foxes would have to come later), which would you choose? What if Allpro Expos with Fox 2.0 rear shocks could be had with LR UCA's up front... but getting into Alcan's meant 5125s and no LR UCA's... which would you choose? Thx.

    Was running Expos. Originally switched due spring pack failure twice, Allpro covered them under warranty but better have a second vehicle as I waited 5 weeks for the first warranty replacement and 2 for the second (customer service leaves alot to be desired). And now I won't switch do to ride quality being better all around compared to the Expos.

    So, I understand that your experience has been tha tthe Dakars ride better compared to the Expos you had? How much weight were you carrying in the back with the Expos? How much weight with the Dakars? How much lift were you seeing with both setups?

    And, lastly... how long ago were you having problems with the Expos? 5-10 years ago is one thing... 6mos to a year ago is notsogood. Since this is for work... reliability / durability is kinda sorta important for me. Hmmmm....

    Anyone else have issues with reliability / durability of AllPro rear leaf springs, particularly Expos?
