    Alright , so i've been putting aside some money to get my lift put together, i still have another at least 6 months before i get re-united with my truck , but with the icon's changing prices i might have to set some stuff in the back of my truck until i can put it in... here's what im going with so far

    -ICON 5-8550 - Billet Upper Control Kit

    -ICON 5-8735 - Extended Travel Remote Reservoir Coil-over Shock Kit

    -ICON 2.5" Rear Reservoir Shocks

    -All-Pro Expedition Leaf Springs

    -05+ Tacoma Rear U-Bolt Flip Kit with Timbren Bumpstops

    -All Pro Shackle Flip kit

    -Front bumper either all pro or relentless

    -rear bumper relentless

    -Pro Comp 7089's with most likely Goodyear Kevlar MT/R 35", possibly 37's depending on if i want to re-gear, i know most are going to recommend gears with the 35's

    -Glassworks fenders front and rear




    With that said , here are some of the questions i have,

    1. That's going to sit wayy to high in the rear isn't it ? that's like 4.5 in in the rear and only probably 2.75-2.5 in the front with bumper on that's a huge concern for me i'd like my truck level

    2. anyone seen a right up or some install pics of 05+ fiberglass bedsides, i found a lot of 1st gen , but no 2nd , except one broken link from google

    3. How do the icons take the weight of a front bumper , will they compress as much as i previously stated ?

    Please post your opinions/ experiences , i have quite a bit of time to build this i just want to make sure it's right so i can put it all in when i get home.

    Oh, and one more thing, anyone ever match the glass fenders with an aftermarket not tube bumper, i don't want my from to look like this truck.
