    Hey, I was just searching for feedback on the AllPro Expedition Leaf pack and found your thread; nice build and was happy to see your feedback on the Goodyear Duratrac's because those are on my list to buy soon because i put studded winter tires on my factory rims thinking we were gonna have a normal winter here in Edmonton and the snow never came this year,lol. Regardless those tires are staying on the factory rims and some larger Duratracs are going on when I install the Toytec Ultimate lift that is sitting, looking pretty on my living room floor.

    Please update on those Expedition springs when you get them on. There seems to be conflicting info on the amount of actual lift. Unless I'm wrong AllPro states 4" but people are saying they are giving less which I hope is the case. With a planned 3" lift in the front I'd like to level out more and not actually increase the rake of my truck.

    I thinking Expedition's though because I just bought a camper 2 weeks ago that weighs around 1050lbs(470kg) without all my gear inside. I drove it home from Calgary with the factory TSB leaf springs and it did alright but i had a slight negative rake and it was a little bouncy. so I'm hoping these springs will be the ticket.

    If you could measure from the hub center how much actual lift you get and also report back on how they ride with an empty bed, wanna make sure it's not too rough of a ride it would be greatly appreciated. these springs are so new I think a lot of guys would like to know.

    Also, did you order straight from AllPro?

    Thanks

    Sliders are finally back on!!!

    Primed them then painted them by brush with duplicolor bedliner, now when they chip I can just touch them up with a brush as I still have half a can left in the garage.

    Also have all-pro expedition springs installed in the back, u-bolt flip kit.... brake lines will go on soon

    I also have a canopy being painted at the moment with racks which will be great for work and camping, will hopefully have that on this week

    Next mod is to replace another wheel bearing :( and in the next few months some 4.5" backspaced rims and some 33's or 34's

    With the tall cap, roof racks and 4" lift in the back I can fit in my garage by about 1/2", with 33's on it might be tight!

    Got the new tires out on some dirt, had a good weekend camping at Enid Lake and exploring the area.

    Need to chop my cab mounts though!

    Still have to mount my fogs but since both bulbs are toast I might put an led pod or something in there.

    Just incase there was any confusion this is 4x4 :D Added a 'sockmonkey' retro decal

    Got these to finally fix that problem! New 14" x 650lb eibach springs are being installed while the coil overs are getting rebuilt.

    Well after over a month up on jack stands my truck is rolling again :D

    I have freshly rebuilt coilovers with new eibach 14" x 650lb springs and replaced all the bushings in my UCA's. I have the same amount of lift now but with almost 2" less preload! The front end is nice and quiet again and riding oh so smooth! I also painted the frame and a bunch of things in the front with POR15 so it looks a bit prettier. I have removed the sway bar but yet to really test it out to see if I like it off.

    Since I have a daily driver/work truck now I can turn this into more of a toy! Have a brand new hi lift in the garage just have to pick up some mounts from the gear shop, also have a new rear bumper ordered so should be on soon.....
