So, now the question is....King or Icon Coilovers.
Damn, this is getting too expensive...
5100s are still good shocks, and 885s actually have a lighter spring weight than icons/king. But from personal experience Icon has a much nicer feel on road. OME was nice and firm, so my truck handled great and barley had any body roll/brake dive, but i felt every bump. Main difference between icon and king is icon has digressive valving and king has progressive. How i understand it is king is better for high speed stuff, if you are looking for best on road ride and do mostly slow wheeling icon is awesome.

Progressive vs digressive

"For example, when the valves open or close, depending on the shock and valving design, the rate at which the damping becomes softer or stiffer per unit of shock velocity increase depends on if the valving is linear, progressive, or digressive. As the name suggests, in linear valving the rate at which the damping changes with the velocity of the shock is constant. If the valving is progressive, the rate of change of stiffness increases as velocity increases; and if the valving is digressive, the rate of change of damping gets less as the shocks velocity increases."

Pretty spot on..

They way i simple and break it down,

Race truck where your blowing through the first few inches of travel , you want progressive (Fox/King)

Mid Travel Daily Driver/ Weekend warrior- You have limited travel so those first few inches are crucial to the ride quality and should be able to handle more. So a Digressive valving is more suited for this application. That being said, the Digressive will still handle the high speed stuff very well. Icon add's a mini bump zone in their valving so the last inch or so is stiffer to avoid bottom out's and hard hits.

The year and DCSB doesnt matter. Just look for some 05+ icons extended length coilovers for a 4wd.
Probably gonna end up costing you $700-$1,000 used.

I've been looking everywhere for a decent used pair but, have not come up with anything yet. That's exactly what I've been on the hunt for... Icon Extended Travel Coilovers for an 05+ Tacoma. Apart from TW & TTORA, is there anywhere else you can suggest I search?

We just put some New Icon's on a FJ that had the on DR setup on it, and are selling the Old stuff for the customer.

They are ext. travel 2.5" Donahoe Coil overs and Uniball UCA. They do need a rebuild and new Uniballs.

Wanted to give you all first crack at them

They will fit 05+ Tacoma's or 05-07 FJ's.

Cash and Carry price is $750 (Coilovers and UCA's)
OR
We rebuild and new bearings done by us for $1250 (Coilovers rebuilt and new Uniballs in the arms) If we rebuild them we could have them ready by next thursday.

Can figure out shipping if you want.
