Icon or King, what would you do?

I konw this topic gets brought up a lot on here and I have done a good amount of research just still don't know what route to go just yet. I have an 02 double cab tacoma 4x4 and will be doing the suspension on it soon I was going to go with an OME setup but have decided to go with coilovers but like I said not sure what brand I want just yet. Any kind of input is welcomed, thaks.

This.

The valving is a bit different. Either will support whatever direction you'd like to take your truck and hold up to a helluva beating.

Personally, I like Icon's attention to detail, which is why I went with them.

Thanks for the link good info on there. Now the type of off roading I will be doing is on old logging trails so nothing real fast top speed of 40 mph on bad roads and then some slow crawling on rocks and such so what coilover is best for that progressive vs digressive?

I have done some searching about two weeks worth on here and other sites but still so hard to make a decision. Reading that link some say that SAW are good for our trucks. Just don't here alot about them it is mostly King or Icon.

they are both good, KING-progressive softer at low speed, and progressivly harder as the hits become bigger. ICON-digressive harder at low speeds, softer on bigger hits.

IMO progressive but thats just me and I am limited knowledged

Ah ok now I see cool so you are looking at Fox real hard. I hear they are nice also. For truck 02 model mostly Icon, king and sometime SAW are common coilovers.

What other coilovers were you looking at and what kind of wheeling do you do?

King, Fox and ICON. I have heard ICON can be stiff so I'm kind steering clear of those. I usually do easy to moderate difficulty wheeling. I'd like to add a little high speed to my offroading but nothing like 100 mph through massive whoops. I want to do what I do and not worry about breaking.

Yea I am the same way nothing serious but just a good ride overall. I am obviously King or ICON. I have heard that the ICONS can ride a lil rough but from what I uderstand they are made like that then at higher speeds they soften up. Still I think no matter what we do we will be satisfied.

The FOX 2.0s have some ride adjustability. The 2.5s require re valving.

Let's clear something up: The Icon's do not ride "rough" on road. They a little, emphasis on little, more jittery on minor broken pavement. The tradeoff? Speedbumps and potholes feel like a late 70s Lincoln land yacht.

I have *nothing* bad to say about the Icon setup offroad. Very soft hits on rocks, drops, and holes, a world of improvement from stock.
