    10x better!!!! The toytecs are good for mostly on road driving and light off roading, but doesnt take big bumps and stuff verry well. the icons ride smoother on harsher terrain and bumps/potholes.

    Im upgrading from Radflo's bc these radflo's are pretty meant for 2.5" of lift, and im at 3" and the ride is harsh! Every bump i can feel and is jarring... plus I have almost no down travel, they top out over spped bumps. I hate it!

    Plus for practically the same price you get a 2.5" body, and a rebuildable awsome coilover. Toytecs are just a over priced 5100 with an adjustment collar...
    IMO

    The Icon sale is good for anything Icon we have on the website including the Tundra suspension. So feel free to place your order or if you have any questions give me a call at 503-822-1111 ext. 1

    I can certainly get the long travel coilovers ordered, give me a call and we can get the ball rolling on them.
