How much of a lift did you get with the ICONS? Are they easy to set up?
BTW, Nice looking truck!

On my 4x4 SR5, yes, they clear no problem. However, I have read of others running into issues if balancing weights are used on the inside surface instead of the side. I honestly didn't know that's how some balancing is done. I always assumed it was done on the sides between the tire and the rim.

Sweet looking truck, looking at getting the same rims for mine but wondering if the 17 inchers will clear the calipers and the trd sport. Dont think it should be an issue though.

Suspension - $1275
Labor - $540

Only labor I did was level the kit with the spanner wrench.

Just found this build thread while searching for Toyos. How do you like them so far?

So far so good. Grip REALLY well on dry pavement. On wet, pretty good, at least compared to what I was used to with BFG ATs. Only had one snow day here so far. Did ok I guess. Don't really have anything for reference. Limited used off-road, only gravel. Again I thought they did fine but I don't really have much for reference.

Gas mileage has gone down about 2-3mpg, but I think that's due to more of the fact that these are larger than stock. Seem to be quiet as well.

Trip back to El Paso. I decided I'd try to find an off-road route to this location just outside of Sierra Blanca (have always wanted to bomb my bike down those hills. Reminds me of Utah). Mapped it out with Google Maps/Street View:



Headed out, ready to go:


However, my plans were easily foiled (funny that gate didn't show up on the streetview):

Then came my first REAL off-road break-in session. In El Paso, just outside of Westway towards the Franklin Mountains.

Miles and miles of miles and miles...


Going up!


Up on top of the vista:


Back down:


Limits of the stock suspension's articulation. You can't tell from the pic but the wheel is off the ground. No locker but the traction control got me out of this one. Also got my first paint scrapes from the thorn bushes on the sides


You could literally spend days exploring everything out there:

Thanks. Yes, Stage 1, standard travel. Lowered the front a bit to level it out.
