I'm on a budget so I now am the installer any of you gentlemen have any suggestions for me on it and it being the install/ tacoma suspension.? You might just save a guy a head ache when it comes time. (same truck but access cab) thanks
just bought this same kit and got a deal through 4wheelparts at their "truck fest" 3400 out the door for the kit and alignment. i plan on installing it myself, looks fairly straight forward.

So this past Tuesday I dropped my truck off at super duty h q in Gilbert Arizona right before closing for install on Wednesday. The install was completed late Wednesday and alignment on Thursday morning and I got the call it was done around 11:30 am Th.

Total installed was $4660 tax and labor, with upgraded 2.5 remote rears from the 2.0's. This is icons stage 4 with the billet UCA's aal and extended travel coil overs.

Saturday afternoon I had some time before dark to do a quick run out at four peaks off the bee line hwy here in Mesa, Arizona. I had taken her here right after I bought her and wanted to follow the same trail for comparison.

As soon as you turn of the pavement you start onto some wash boards. I had an immediate sinking feeling I just dumped 5k into some pretty shocks. With no idea of what to expect I was disappointed I felt anything other than a cloud underneath. I switched to 4-hi and moved forward. I made my way up to the gated parking area and started my approximately 1.5 mile run. The first down hill left I remembered from my stock run as I took it a bit fast and experienced a bone jarring bottom out and christened my front skid. But not this time!

The icons seemed to love speed, bumps, ripples, rutts and holes and encouraged my ear to.ear grin. The faster I went the bigger the grin. I was blown away over the improvement. Previously, areas I had to taken bone rattling jolts at 15-20 mph I was flying thru at 30-45. The icons soaked it up and asked for more. I could not be happier! The first run I came up on a F-150 and a dodge 1500. The refused to pull over to let me pass so I pushed them until they succumbed to their own bone rattling sparks flying ride they got from trying to pull away. I passed them up and and left them in my dust trail. There was no way they could keep pace and I could not have been happier. I met them both at the parking lot after and answered their jaw dropping questions about my sick suspension. They said it looked like a trophy truck pulling away from them. I could not have been happier or more proud

im stoked!! i just purchased this kit and can't wait to put it on and drop some jaws.

You will find a huge difference over stock.

Let us know how you like the digressive setup.
