    There is a group buy on Icons that may sway your desision. 20% off is a pretty good deal! $1850 shipped for 2.5" extended travel remote resi C/O's and 2.5" remote resi rear shocks is a steal. How they ride? Dunno yet, but I'll find out in a few weeks!

    These are the two I am between as well. Like to hear from others, so please if anyone has an opinion.. share.! If I go with Icon I will most likely not do the remote resi though. Plan on doing some off-road but the remote resi really only keeps down the heat if you are doing serious offroading, like dune racing. Figure it's overkill for what I plan on doing. This info came from Icon rep.
