I need some advise in order to make my suspension purchase a more educated one.
I went to a trail called Hollyjim in Socal. I was driving on the dirt road, which is a wide dirt road with some water damage and rock. I was driving my TRD OR totally stock. In the rear mirror I see an FJ approaching quickly, I slowed down to let the FJ pass. The FJ passed me consederably pretty fast, you can tell that the FJ was absorbing the rocks and ruts like nothing. On the other hand, my Tacoma was bouncing like crazy, althoght I was going way slower than him and going any faster would've been unsafe.
Once we got to the parking area, I went to see the FJ and it had ICON coilovers, rear shocks, ICON upper control arms and 17" wheels with 285s. The FJ did not look too aggressive, just a perfect stance.
My question is, can the ICONS items make such a big difference in the driving that will allow you to apparently drive so much better, smooth and fast in rough terrain?
I was considering OME for my truck soon, but if ICONs or any other type of C/Os is the only way to absorb rough terrain like that, then I might change my mind.
