What will you use the truck for, jumping? Crawling? Mild off roading with trails, snow / mountain driving?

A good answer would be like 70% highway, 20% crawling, 10% jumping.

Welcome. I'm getting ready to go through this process as well. I'm going to sub this thread and see the input as well. I like both choices you've come up with so far. Good luck.

So I know have all my parts in hand for my Stage 2 Icon Lift, with Tube Icon UCA. I dont have the space or the tools to install the lift myself currently. Im trying to get quotes on where I can get this done near me. Ive left a message with my parts guy at the dealer I got my truck at.

Any ideas on costs to get installed? How many hours they should bill? Any help would be great. Or if anyone knows and has tools available wants to help out let me know.

OP, beautiful truck and looks great with the lift too.

I'm going to go Icon Stage 4 too, a few questions if I may:
1) The Stage 4 kit is about $3,400. What was the price difference to swap billet vs. tube UCA's?
2) How much lift did you gain? Is it adjustable all the way up to 3"?

Got my lift from metal tech for $1700, tube UCAs for $650 from DSM. I set it at 2.5.
