    The truck is still at the shop getting some more work done.. I will get more pictures up when I get it back but I think the Icon's will handle that bumper just fine with the 650 pound coils it comes with

    Just quoted from DSM, TW $981.75 for ICON coilovers standard or extended. FYI. Do you guys think an extra $50 is worth it for the corrosion protection? Im in the northeast and they put alot of salt down. Not sure which UCA's im going with but considering a ball joint style for the same reason. Im waiting for tax return. Cant wait.

    I went with the Icon stage 4 with the compression adjuster nobs and 2.5 inch rear shocks with remote resis... Buttery smooth and way better than the stock TRD suspension.. Totally in love with this set up

    I've been trying to decide on which to go with between these two, King and ICON, for the last couple weeks. After reading as much as I can find and talking to MANY different companies that sell both of these products I've come to the conclusion they both are top notch and neither is really any better than the other. I was initially leaning toward King's product but my Tacoma is black and the blue shocks and springs, IMO, wouldn't look good and I don't see the point of paying extra to special order black King's when I can get ICONS that are equally as good and are already black and silver.

    Thanks man, I am really happy with them so far.. SDHQ charged me roughly $1,600 for them, but I got a bunch of other stuff at the same time so I had a pretty good sized bill..

    Anyhow, I'd love to go wheeling and meet some of you guys..

    I have graphite, and I am in the same situation but I was like fuck it. I just got my kings installed, they feel amazing. it sucks they are just blue/silver unless you special order which I learned after the fact :/

    My emblems are hydrodipped with a special pattern that contains mainly red :(
