    right at 1/2" higher in front.. a little more sag on the driver rear-must be because of the gas tank being on that side.. I will be cranking the front up about another 1/2" higher to give a little more clearance for my tires..

    So its almost even all around? Makes me wanna give it a try again on my truck. Any chance I could get you to measure from the ground up till it meets the fender and post your measurements?

    rides awesome, very little change over stock to be honest.. and im sure off road it will be 10 fold nicer..
    as far as height- i never measure wheel well lenghts-very unaccurate.. i measure ground to start of pinch weld front and rear cab.. front 21 1/2 and rear 20 1/2 pass rear 21 driver rear.. keep in mind I will be cranking up more either tomorrow or mon

    i go away for the weekend and this happens?!

    ok, hold on, you put a spacer ON TOP of your icons?!!:eek: where did you come up w/ this idea?

    also, your truck that is lifted now ~3.5 rides "awesome" and "very little change over stock"?? how can a truck that now has NO downtravel ride that well?

    please explain, im dying to hear the answer to the spacer question...

    well im not sure why you think it wouldnt have any down travel- but anyhow it has plenty and rides perfect.. I did it to eliminate cranking the coils to their max point and having shit for ride in a nutshell.. Not my 1st rodeo- no issues what so ever.. tracks perfectly straight, no bumpsteer, ride is killer and all the travel I need till I get my lift spindles..

    reason i think you have no downtravel is because i know you dont have much. stock, the truck has 4" max downtravel. you installed 2.5" lift coilovers AND a 1" spacer on top, which equal ~3.5". its simple math, you have max 1" downtravel. now, if you set your icons w/ 0" lift, then yes, you still have ~3" downtravel and i am wrong and i take back what i said, but if you left the icons as shipped, i am right.

    not my first rodeo either, i have had several setups on my two tacos through the years, from spacers (spring and on top), to coilovers, to bilstein 5100s...this is how i know you have no downtravel.

    how do you figure you have plenty of downtravel?? and whos idea was it to add a spacer on a racing coilover setup?

    where did you get those spacers?
    do they make different sizes?
    What size are yours?

    Well let me just start off by saying that when I say "plenty" of travel this is vs stock.. This is obviously NOT a long travel kit nor will I treat it like such.. So for what it is, as it may be a race inspired c/o w/out the rest of the goodies to go w/ it would be improper in my eyes to treat the truck like a race prerunner.. So for what it is being used for it has plenty of travel.. And it was my idea to use the spacer, I don't doubt that you have expirimented w/ your truck and that is great.. But I have built full race prerunners at my shop as well as long travel rails.. This is nothing new to me.. Trust me- when its time for me to do what I need it to do I will change it.. But it works perfectly right now and most people would be stoked w/ the setup.. Anyone in the vegas area is welcome to come by and go for a ride.. I'm easy bro- just doing a setup that works for me under the circumstances..
