    it depends on what type of wheeling you do...

    if its just for looks, then go with whichever one is cheaper costing for you...

    i ran DRs on my 01 dcab for a few years until i went long travel and now run Kings...

    I run Kings and I love them. I have not had the chance to run the Icons but from what I have heard they are really nice as well. If you go with one of the big names like King, Icon, SAWs or Fox you can't really go wrong for what most casual off roaders use them for. It would be a matter to color and personal taste. I like the Kings cause they have a 2.5 shock body which is beast when you are up close to it...and comparing that to my Stock Billies it is just massive.
