Wait on Dakars, or get something else?

    Everyone who sells these saying mid-May. Do I wait, or get something comparable. I really want to get this lift going.....

    Thoughts??

    Depends on two things (1) type of driving/uses of the truck and (2) your patience level :rolleyes:

    I tow a landscaping trailer. It's my part time business. 6X12 single axle trailer, Toro Grandstand and some other equipment. Nothing super heavy, but enough I think to warrant the Dakars.

    Zero patience. :D

    Love my Dakars so far. I have only had them for about 2 weeks but I will get to use them soon enough (boating season is upon us!). I also opted for the D29XL add a leaf to increase the height 15mm and spring capacity. Once my rig moves from a DD to a offroad specific vehicle, I will most likely get Expos. But for now, dakars yield the best of both worlds.

    I was in the same boat. I went ahead and purchased expos from allpro. Hopefully they will come in by tomorrow.

    NOT!! Just talked with AllPro and they're out of the standard and expeditions until the end of the month. Looks like I'm waiting on the Dakars and my lift will have to wait.
