    not really, if you had to you could have a spacer made that would allow you to run your current icon CO's w/ a LT kit, but thats only as a temporary fix until you can afford an 8" shock. it would prob be a bad idea to offroad the kit w/ the spacer CO combo, plus you would lose out on travel of the LT kit and then whats the point...

    as for the rear shocks, no. if you do a rear spring under axle (long travel) you'll have to get new shocks

    To much to list!
    Value of the truck goes down pretty much on a daily basis. You never get all your money back in parts and you get zero money back for labor. Just the way it is. You can go buy a truck today drive it to Camburg. Have then fulling tricked it out now you have 25k for a truck and another 20k for a parts and labor. I bet you could only sell it for 30k you wont get your money back. Just a fact when it comes to cars/trucks
