A couple products im looking for

Where is a good place to buy a U-bolt flip kit and a front diff drop spacers? is there a certain vender i should look for? I want a good Brand for each item.
I looking to get a full Icon set up ex travel, AAL Icon with TC UCA I'm basically looking for the exact same set up as this taco in this video which I'm sure a couple people have already seen. Also, Im looking to buy the Icon Lift at DownSouth Motorsports

Don't get a front diff drop. They don't help. For the other stuff check out DSM or Wheelers.

I know people say they don't work but can you explain why? I have one on my truck and it put my CV Axles at a better angle...

I'll keep mine in place until I upgrade my skids since it's a pain to get an aftermarket skid to fit with the diff drop in.

Also I have done some gnarly trails with a diff drop and have not had a single problem. IMO a diff drop is going to do more good than harm for 99.9% of us with lifts.

They do rotate the diff itself taking gear oil away from the pinion bearings. I personally wouldn't add one. I would spend more money and get some high angle CVs made.

They make exactly this much of a difference...


...and since they rotate your front differential, the diff fluid is shifted away from your pinion bearings. Good stuff!

I wouldn't put much stock in the old"they shift your fluid away from the pinion bearings" line, When are we ever dead level anyway? the other aspects are another story.
