Need another opinion.

I just got my Icons and TC UCAs for my 06, don't have them on yet, but will soon. As for the back end. Should I spend the cash to get the Icon DR series RR shocks, or will some Bilstien 5150 piggy backs work just fine for me? It's a diffrance of about $300 is why I ask. Thats my light bar right there.

5150's have resivoir's???

Guess all the pics i've seen were not 5150's.

Edit: ok did some searching, and seems that I been asuming that the 5100 rears were the 5150's.

Good deal on the 5150's: http://www.4wheelparts.com/Lift-Kits...0662&t_pl=5985

But how would a person know which to choose from as far travel length...

+1 , LOL...

I am definately getting these. Way cheaper than most remote resevoir, no need to mount the res. But yeah, whats the diff as far as specs. I will be running the Wheelers 3 leaf pack adding 1.5" to the rear. Was going with full leaf pack but heard they limit load capacity. So the 3 Leaf should give me best of both worlds if paired with a good set of Billy 5150's right?

thanks.
