    Not a buyer but your pics in your Photo Gallery on Picassa are bad ass. Nice looking truck, and a great build. :thumbsup:

    Well for one, 36" was my max height with the fox's and now with my rebuilt icon's, the front height is 39". The icons also have a smoother ride. Oh, and they were built specifically for this truck. I ran Danohoes for almost three years and they were great. One month with the fox's in the front was a mistake and I had my DR's rebuilt for $500. Great coilovers.

    Really glad to hear that about how the ICON/ I just picked up a set of Coil overs used off a guy here on the island for 100 with the billet upper control arms.... Do you happen to know where I can get a good price on some sliders on this island? Sorry to thread jack but I like your truck

    I'm actually going to be swapping my kings for foxs in a while. But I'm not running OEM Replacement stuff either.

    Dunno about sliders, I picked mine up from Demello when I was still living in San Diego. Anything shipped here is a costly but if you really want the sliders I would go with the Demello just because shipping would be cheaper from the west coast. I just purchased a bumper shipped from the east coast and it was not cheap. Should be installed next week.

    Yea well $40k for a trail runner 4runner was a bit steep for a truck that is going to see some rocks and dirt when I get back to California. Looking at buying a house when I get back to San Diego and this truck is nearly paid so the wife and I need as much cash as we can get.

    So the truck will be hanging around. I recently installed the Icon's and I have a bumper from Armortech that is on a boat headed this way. Can't wait to get that sucker on the truck. It's off to Peacock flats after that to put the setup through its paces.
