    Dobinsons Suspension 1 year and 18k mile review. I have never done this before so dont flame me to hard. This is my 100% honest review. This is what i have with part numbers
    Screenshot_20190201-172836_Drive.jpg


    Part 1: Front
    I have the MRR front adjustable coilovers with remote resi and 730lbs springs. I was very worried when i got them that they would ride hard without any weight on them. I was pleasently surprised that they were soft and smooth. Even now with all the weight i have on them they have a very pleasent and forgiving ride. The longer hose did pose a little trouble for me finding a way to route it and mount the resi where the tire wouldnt eat it, but i soon found a very good place. Ive found that offroad they recover very well after a hard hit or even a small one, they dont ever feel like your about to loose traction or control on any terrian. However one of my biggest problems with them is how hard they are to adjust. They adjust from the bottom of the spring and you have to compress the spring so the seat with move. I have yet to find a compressor that will fit between the coils while they are still on the truck.

    Over all i like them alot. Ive even thought about upgrading from them, but i really dont think it would be much of an upgrade no matter what i put on it. They are rebuildable, they use rubber bushing instead of heim joints for less maintence, and they perform on the same level as kings or icon.

    Pros:
    1. Price point
    2. Recover well after an obsticle
    3. Nice smooth ride on and off road
    4. Rebuildable and far less maint.

    Cons:
    1. Hose on bottom and far to long, makes for difficult mouting.
    2. Very difficult to adjust.

    Stay tuned for rear suspension

    Part 2: Rear suspension. (Finally)

    So the rear, where to start? Leaf springs.
    There only one way to describe these leaf springs, STOUT! They are awesome. I have the middle of the road Heavy packs. When i was unloaded, before the bumper and extra weight, i had roughly 4 inches of lift in the back. And it road just as smooth as it does now with 550lbs of load in the back. And at 550lbs of constant load im still over 3in of lift. They are simply fantastic. And with their optional greasable bushing bolts i have little to no squeaks. Overall i cant say enough good things about them. Handle well on road and off, have plenty of flex as well.

    No the rear shocks are very good. They dampen well and recover well after a good hit. My only complaint about the rear shocks is I wish they would droop more. But there designed to be run with factory brake lines. So that is a good thing for those that dont want to screw around with brake lines. Overall the complete package is awesome and i see myself running it for some time to come. Hope you liked my quick 1 year review.

    These fenders are not happy about coming off. Got one off now have to wait out the rain for a day or 2 to get the other. Started descaling the rust as well. Gunna flip it over soon and get it ready for the new suspension set up, and to descale the underside. Got alot of work to do before its ready for our tent.
