    One of them started leaking so sent to Texas (Icon doesn't do them) to have both rebuilt. This was about 2 months before the first trip to Moab. Didn't have time to look around and get them done locally or do them myself although I understand that is possible. Just didn't need any issues before (or during) trip. Cost about $300 to include shipping if I remember right. Read of similar issues with other peoples Icon's. Have put around 25k on them since then and no issues.

    Yes, they are only 215 with the flip kit. They are better for running a 11” travel shock

    Just had my first contractor call me back with a lump sum type number. It's actually really close to what I was expecting/wanting so that makes me happy. Still wanting to see what the others come back with obviously and for this one to break out an itemized pricing for me, but things are moving forward.

    Hey for you high clearance bumper guys, how did you weather proof the exposed bedside metal from the chop? Weather stripping? If so, what kind did you use?

    it's 32ft, a ton of it. I actually have some you can cut some off to fit. I originally bought that much to do my fenders with but it wouldn't fit around them so I have a lot extra.

    on one of the facebook groups somebody posted this and I can't for the life of me figure out what's happening...there is no way that shock is bottomed out and holding the springs up like that...

    Greetings fellas, New to the Tacoma world. It was suggested that I stop by and introduce myself on this thread from AL. I work in Huntsville and live a little outside of town. I've always been big into offroading, and modifying my vehicles. Glad to be here and interested if there are ever organized meetups/trail rides around North Alabama.

    We definitely are the guys for you then. Lots of off-roading and lots of talking about how we’re going to or are modifying our trucks. It’s a fun group here.
