    If you were to purchase a complete suspension lift kit for your 2nd gen, which would you spend your hard earned money on?

    *Comparing apples to apples, and knowing what you know regarding quality and performance.

    Fox 2.5" (non remote-reservoir) and 2.0" rear shocks with All-Pro 3" full rear expedition leafs springs.

    By all means, this is not meant to bash on anyone, just seeing which kit would you consider the best bang for your buck.

    1.) Toytec Bilstein Ultimate Lift Kit - $1150 with the AAL
    ...or an extra $439 for Dakar full leaf springs.

    2.) Toytec Radflo Ultimate Lift Kit - $1150 (with the 2.0" body coilovers)
    ...or an extra $190 for 2.5" body and $439 Dakar full leaf springs.

    3.) Icon Stage 1 - $1500

    2.5" (non remote-reservoir) and rear remote reservoir shocks. But no full leaf springs or even AAL.

    In my honest opinion, these coilovers and shocks are almost identical to the Fox 2.5" that I'm offering,
    except the fact that their price doesn't offer a full set of rear leaf springs.

    Out of those 3 kits, I would spend my money on the Toytec Ultimate as I need new leafs for my truck... I personally am most likely going to pick up the OME full kit in the near future which rings in at about $1300. If I could get a Fox kit for not much more, I may consider it.

    I think you might have missed the point of the post. If I can offer the Fox's with the All-Pro 3" expedition rear leafs for $1550, would that be comparable to the 3 other kits listed.

    I understood what you are possibly offering... my answer is yes, I think that it would be comparable

    I personally think its the best bang for your buck kit out there as well.

    $1550 is a tentative price right now, but possibly $1500 flat + shipping if I can get group buy minimum of 5 orders.

    Yeah, let me know exactly what you have to offer when it comes to and I will definitely consider it. If nothing else, Fox shocks are just beast! lol

    Thinking about putting together a group buy if there's enough interests, just getting some comparison opinions from some fellow members. A separate "for sale" thread will be posted in the appropriate section.

    The Toytec and Fox options offer the best bang for the buck.

    Just FYI, the Icon C/Os have a 650lb spring compared to a 600lb spring for the Fox units...the Icons will cope a little better with armor weight if a user adds metal down the road...if anyone's wondering.

    Also, any chance on partial purchases? Like could I snag a set of those Dakars for $440? And what kind of shipping costs are we talking?
