Tell me what you think about my lift ideas.

2011 DCSB V6. Oil field work truck. Thinking of going with wheelers Icon 3inch front package with Icon uca's and remote reservoir shocks. Deavers 10 leaf rear packs and icon rear shocks. Wheelers 16" steel black wheels and general red letter grabbers

Or Ome or Bilstiens with ome 886's and a set of uca's.

My question is.....
My truck see's tons of highway and a lot of wash boarded dirt roads ruts and mud. No towing with this one. The shocks get punished daily. I'm going to spend the money and do it right. So what would you do?

What will hold up long term?

I would say your first choice with the Icon set up, mainly because all you shocks are rebuildable. It will we more $$$, but in the long run I suspect it is the best set up.

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

Icons are great on washboard roads. 30+ mph is a nice ride on them (conditions permiting).

I'm with you guys. I've been on wheelers all day searching different setups, and doing it correctly, a arms and new springs all the way around is from $2200 to $2800. Icon being the most expensive. That's not a big enough difference to cheap out and pay in the long run. Going to make the order tomorrow I hope.
