    Does anyone have pictures of the Fox Coilovers with the black anodized finish? Tried looking online and didn't come up with any results.

    Additionally, need a little advice...
    I have heard that Kings are the stiffest CO over Fox and Icon; with Icon being the softest of the three. Is that somewhat true? If thats the case, I definitely don't want the kings. Debating over the Fox or Icon. Is there a main difference between the two.

    THANKS

    I never read there was a stiffness difference between fox and Icon (I haven't looked at other brands much as these two are rated the best)

    You can read this post on the subject. A lot of stuff off-topic but a good read still.

    http://ttora.com/forum/showthread.php?t=129630 (you probably knwo this forum already, it's a very good forum for offroading Tacomas, but not really intended for any other type of Tacoma discussion)

    I decided to buy Icons because I could get them faster, but I think both are very close to equally good.

    Thanks for sending me over to TTORA forum, that is a great thread/read.
    Leaning to the ICON set up but still searching for a picture of the Fox CO with the black anodized finish.

    I've never seen them. Ask on ttora, if someone has them online, it could be there.

    Good luck. I'm getting my Icons Friday!

    If you have time, let me know how you like them and take a few photos too. How much did you pay for them and where did you purchase them from?

    Thanks
