    Remote Resi Icon's with TC UCA's, or you can go with camburg if you want. No sales tax from wheelers and they pay shipping on all ICON Coilovers. You can talk to them and they might even give you a TW discount. If not then go through Downsouth Motorsports. They take care of TW members and have the best customer service around. I would go with Kings or ICONs personally.

    Don't go drop bracket, just stick with a good 3" lift.

    Thats the same setup I'm running on my truck and I love it. Everything rides great and the install and alignment with the UCAs was easy. My only complaint about my setup is that I went with an AAL in the back vs a new leaf pack, and it rides like s&!t. Otherwise I'm very happy with the setup.

    After much more research, this is what i have on the needed list to make this lift complete:

    -Front coilovers , Either ICON or Fox extended travel
    -Rear resi Shocks, Again either ICON or Fox
    -Upper control arms, TC or camburg seem to be the best choices
    -2" AAL or Leaf pack, Depending on end price (trying to stay under 2500$)
    -New steel brake lines front and back
    -Diff Drop
    -Driveline carrier bearing drop kit

    I am going to be doing much more research, and everyones inputs so far have been very helpful. and I will continue taking critiques and inputs from anyone with more experience with these products. Thoughts?

    this is how i see it about resi's.. i fyoure not going throught washboards (Arroyos) for 100+ miles without stopping there is no real need for them. Just go with non resi extended travel COs. the Resi is more of a "bling" factor if you arent using them to the fullest. I am in no was discouraging you from getting them and have no idea what offroading you do, but im just tryin to save you pennies.

    Looks like you got an AWESOME setup there. I am a little jealous lol. I would look at Downsouth Motorsports on that set up. I hear they are awesome customer service and will give TW members a little bit of a discount. If you are getting all those items they might be able to do something for you. I have also heard Wheelers Offroad is good as well.

    Not to sure about Offroad Warehouse but they do have a youtube video of instalation but with Icons. Should be kind of similar though.

    Good luck with what you decide and really looking forward to this build.

    i got most of this set up for under 2.5 at just wheelers. I am sure with a little shopping around and site mixing and matching, i can keep it under 2500$
