    Hello everyone, i just joined TW because its the shit and ive been having it frequently come up in my google search results. I just ordered my Icon Stage 4 Extended travel kit and i need some advice. Which tire, BFG/Toyo? A/T or M/T?Tire size for my stock alloy sport rim (17 inch i think). Also how high should i lift my truck, the kit gives you up to a 3" lift, which is the best height for full performance? I dont care about the looks like those bro/redneck lifts that are 6-12 inches of lift, im all about offroad and saving fuel. Thank You!

    To save fuel get an all terrain, take all the preload out of those shocks and get 265/70/17 or smaller tires, and leave the aal pack out to keep the back end down.

    ^^ That's a good option........but the stock leafs suck balls! Keep the coilovers set where they're at and you'll have the ideal performance out of the set up! They designed it that way!

    What are the pros and cons of not installing the add a leaf kit?

    Depending on the type of add a leaf it can decrease load capacity by removing the overload lead, but the progressive leaves that do this result in a better ride offroad. A single add a leaf will help with load and will lift the truck.

    My suggestion was to leave it out to keep the back end stock height to match the low height of taking the preload out of the front.

    Icon must have put the AAL in the stage 4 kit for a reason and i dont want my truck sagging lower in the back, i want it to be level. My question is, should i set the lift at 2.5 inches or 3"

    Leave if where its pre set.......I believe that's 2.5" more than that it'll ride rough!
