yep for icons you need to notch that bucket usually and its smart to reinforce it.

So, does that mean mine was not cut then? Sorry for the ignorance! BTW- I love this suspension and thank you to all of the SDHQ team for putting up with my endless questions via phone and in person!

The Old version Top Cap had the port located higher on the top cap which required the bucket to get a little trimming/sanding.
The New Rev Top Cap has the port lower and requires no trimming.

Let me know what you find out. I am going to ask SDHQ about a custom bucket gusseting.

removing your sway bar will get you more articulation like this, more independent movement cause the arms aren't connected.


however, with the sway bar removed you will experience some body roll. when making sharp turns you will feel the body roll side to side. it's not terrible, I was concerned after reading about it here but once I removed my sway bar and experienced it first hand it really is not bad at all.

Yes, more articulation off road, but i heard you should be careful on road though. I heard you would feel excessive body roll in sharp turns, lets say if you were to swerve on a highway due to avoid something, etc,.I'm pretty sure this is it, but hopefully someone who knows lot more could chime in?

6 Month Update- CaddyWhompus corners

Had my icons about six months now and have some updates. I now have full 5 piece aluminum skids, CBI high clearence rear number with tire carrier, pelfrey front plate,pelfrey sliders with kick out, TJM 9k winch all added on.

I recommend if you do sway bar delete and front armor that you upgrade to the 700# springs and possibly 14" spring as well. (On order)

After 6 months, settling and regular off road use plus all the weight added I have had quit a bit of settling and sag. The front left taco lean is very exaggeratedright now and I am guessing will need at least 6 additional turns of preload compared to the right side.

I did not bother adjusting as springs are on order and I figured I would just wait till install and some settling. After that I will dial in the pre load and get an alignment.

Right now the front left is low point and right rear ishi point.

Basicall I am all caddywhompus right now.

Will tri and get somepics

Did you ever get all the settling straightened out as well as the new shocks (pics please if available)? I have a Stage 3 enroute for install on my 2014 Tacoma 4X4 DCLB in two days and have some questions.

1. Were there any allignement issues or any suggestions/comments?
2. Can I expect eventual sag issues as well (have a CBI bumber with swing gate ordered but will end up removing stock tow package and bumber which pretty much equates to same weigh unless swing gate is loaded up with everything (two jerry cans, propane tank and box with deep charge battery)?

Appreciate any and all conditions and overriding concern is what am I paying for all this yet will end up having these kind of issues and need to replace items I got in the Stage 3?

Thanks!

hahaha, word! I'll definitely need the help...but I should stop talking about it so I don't jinx it and it never happens! lol. I'm hoping that maybe I get some parts of it from my wife for Christmas but if not, I'll probably be able to pull the trigger on it around tax time. Either way...a mod day will be had!
