    I have ADS and I think they are the best bang for the buck. They ride way better then the OME nitrocharger setup I started with or the 5100/886 combo I'm running now while the ADS get rebuilt.

    Icon has a poor top hat design. Kings require uniball UCAs. I don't know much about Fox. Decide on your budget first, including UCAs and the rear, then decide your setup.

    I doubt they will, people still buy them, why spend money redesigning the whole shock. The top hat is like that because of the reservoir line placement.

    My research so far says ADS is the way to go. Buy it once. Budget is about 2500. I only want an inch or so lift and level it out. Should I get UCAs too? I hadn't planned on it.

    Did you get the resi in the front? What are your thoughts on the clicker adjust? Did you get piggyback for the rear or remote resi? Or is that even an option?

    I've got remotes in the front, no clicker. In the rear I have Icon smooth bodies, I'n not doing fast enough stuff to need to worry about the rear overheating. I would do UCAs, better to do it while you have it all apart. My opinion is that you should do front coilovers, front UCAs, rear leafs and rear shocks. Its a total overkill for most weekend warriors but you won't have to rebuy suspension like I did.

    So I finally went through the video from Bridgeport last week using the $40 chinese knockoff GoPro. Behind the windshield wasn't ideal due to the glare. I also had a small smudge or fingerprint on the left side of the lens and looks a little blurry. It actually caught more video than I expected. I had the USB cable plugged in the whole time, so it was constantly powered. You can sort of see @danbow showing the jeeps up on two hill climbs. The audio worked fine, but I took out the in cab commentary anyway.

    Does it have WIFI like the real ones do?

    Not a bad idea for the price. I'm thinking of putting on under my truck/on the fender for Jambo.

    No Wifi or bluetooth on this one. I don't even know if I can get a spare battery. It did come with lots of mounts and a waterproof case. It's the cheapest one they have on Amazon. It was definitely worth all $40 though. If I lose/break it, no big deal.
