    I was wondering which ICON C/O (the ext. Travel or the standard travel) would be better for mostly street driving but is still good for some pretty tuff mudding and rocking. Their the same price i just dont know which one would be better for my needs.

    The extended travel and standard shocks are basically the same, except the "standard" shock has an extra spacer inside to limit shaft travel.

    Do you have stock UCAs? If so, get the standard. From TRDParts4U's page on the extended travel coilovers:

    ^Like he said. If you have stock upper control arms you want normal length. If you have aftermarket UCA's (Camburg, Total Chaos, etc) with uniball you get a touch more travel over stock. Aftermarket UCA's you would want the extended travel

    Absolutley. If you get the standards you will be missing out on the extra travel your UCA's give you. I vote ext travel with resi :) but they are a little pricey!

    There are 2 different kinds of each travel (2 standards & 2 extended travel)

    Extended travel without remote reservoir - IVD-5-8615 = about $1100

    Extended travel with remote reservoir - IVD-5-8715 = about $1400

    Standard travel without remote reservoir - IVD-5-8610 = about $1100

    Standard travel with remote reservoir - IVD-5-8710 = about $1400

    completely stock
    also the extended travel is not so friendly on the cvs. the extendeds are a good mid travel setup for 2wd but can wear on your 4wd

    Would recommend Extended travel without remote reservoir if you are not doing high-speed runs or jumps. You are never going to overheat the shock fluid with rock crawling or mudding. The exposed reservoir and hose are more vulnerable to damage.

    Extended travel is fine for CVs if you keep the ride height sane. Both standard and extended travel can hurt CVs if the ride height is too high.
