    I don’t need a validation. I can tell it’s not all that great of a lift by looking at what comes with it but u get what u pay for. A few other guys have already responded in this thread saying how crappy it is. How many more responses do u need? Sounds like u already are dead set on buying it. Suit yourself...

    Yes, that kind of harsh. I had a '85 CJ 7 with a 2 1/2"Rough Country leaf style lift. The Taco rode about the same when I first drove it. The Pro Comp coil over springs on my truck I believe were 700lb spring rating. Probably okay if you're stacking skid, bumper and winch weight. I'm not sure if the ES6000 CO's offer different spring # rates yet. Another beef I had was finish. The CO's and ES9000 rear shocks rusted through the white paint in the first year I had the truck. They looked horrible. I kept the Procomp CO's as back-up for whenever the Icon's may need serviced but 80k and the Icon's are still riding great.

    Like NBourque has stated, it seems like your mind is set on buying these regardless of stated opinions or recommendations. It doesn't even sound like you would endorse this lift for yourself. Just save more money,go to home depot and buy some paver stones and pass it off as a body lift.

    No I'm not set on buying it, its just that i wanted some facts about the lift because it is affordable for the reason i am buying. I have run pro comp previous with very little complaints but i have seen others say how bad it rides and just wanted some factual answers instead of the usual responses from this site. I understand you get what you pay for and I'm pretty sure an 18 y/o boy will not care at all because it is free and will look good, probably not function well.
