    So after owning my 08 double cab long bed for 4 years. I'm finally gonna put the lift on her. Here's my parts list of what I got.

    Icon coil overs
    Icon remote res rear shocks
    OME Dakar leaf packs
    Front diff drop
    Carrier bearing drop
    3 degree axle shims
    16x8 KMC enduros
    265/75/16 Goodyear duratracs

    Didn't order new UCAs yet. I'm only gonna set the Icons at 2.5. So I'm gonna see if new UCAs are needed. I have the wheels and tires just waitin on the UPS man to deliver everything else!!! Can't wait

    Nice choice of parts, you'll love the Duratracs.

    Do you plan on installing everything yourself?

    Yea me and my buddy are gonna do it. I'm hoping it's straight forward and this place is great if I have questions. Well I hope it's all straight forward.

    I was a fully just gonna do an Icon AAL but it would only give me about 1.5 inches. And If I ever go higher the 2.5 in the front I think it would look funny. I like the rake look.

    Looks good! Let us know if you have any questions. Plenty of people here know there stuff. I know that putting mine on was a learning experience, but I am very happy I did it myself.

    Those are some sick rims! Gonna' look killer.

    Do yourself a favor and run them without the center caps, they will look a lot more aggressive the way they were made to look.
