    Only time it will lose pressure is if there is a leak. Shouldn't need to check it often, maybe every year.

    For the kings adjusters. What is the best setting to have it at when off roading at low speeds? I have them at their softest for city driving

    Every truck and driver is different so that will be up to you. Soft is good for low speed, stiffer is better for high speed to prevent the vehicle from bottoming out.

    It went but had to go back today as the shop put to much preload on em and I had a CV boot slinging grease. They cranked em both 11 turns first time for some reason. So today I had a new cv axle installed and came down to 7 turns driver and 5 turns passenger. Probably shouldn’t have removed stock overload spring as the mini pack sits a tad too low. Probably needs about a 1” back there. Drives like a champ on the pavement I hit tonight. My 295’s rub like hell full lock and half in reverse. Chop coming soon but I love the way they look.

    How are you liking the icon rtx?
    Does it complement the front suspension?

    @chuymoreno im liking the Icon rxts a lot. Overall i would say it does compliment the front suspension. I have no complaints as of yet. Everything feels better than what i had stock.

    I haven't towed anything yet, so i cant say how well the icon rxts do with that

    I’m going to be upgrading my suspension from 5100/5160’s. I’ll probably purchase the fronts first then the rears. Would you put the fronts on before you got the rears or just wait?

    I put my fronts on first and drove like that for about four months with no issues. Was rocking the Cali lean for a little while was all.

    600LB coils, nothing on the front (planning for new skids, sliders and eventually a bumper), but I feel like this is too much of a pre load, opinions?

    Anyone picked up a set of Kings tuned by Thuren yet?

    At the suggestion of @Daria I’m torn between them and @AccuTune Offroad

    How much lift do you have. That's quite a few threads showing. I have 11 passengers and 12 drivers with just under 2.5 lift with same setup.
