    This is true...faster is smoother as you don't fall all the way into the next divet, you skip over the top. Myth Busters did a demonstration of this a few years ago...on my phone, but you can look it up.

    ICON has some pretty cool stuff for the Tacoma. They just released a bunch of new parts like bolt on rear bumpstops

    I love my Icons. However, if I were to do it again, I would most likely go with Kings as they aren't as proprietary when it comes to valving, springs, and rebuilding ( based on my understanding).
    When I first got my OME lift, I was blown away by how much better it was than stock. The diffefence was just as great, if not more when I upgraded to Icons. I was on a powerline rd out by Barstow. It was close to sunset and I had no offroad lights at the time. There were solid mile stretches where I was between 60-70 mph and it rode great , except for the surpise ruts.
