    The rear bumper is from Slee off road they have far better pics than what I have http://www.sleeoffroad.com/products/bumpers/rear_bumpers_05-15_tacoma.htm



    I am running ADS extended travel shocks in the rear along with Icon bump stops zero issues rear rides perfect in my opinion...

    Strange that you had to wait so long. I just ordered the RXT leaf springs from Icon, and SoCal Super Trucks sent them to me next day!

    I'm trying to figure out between Option 2 and 3 as well. I have Snugtop Rebel Sportsman, Tepui RTT, Prinsu Toprac, gas, hi-lift, and a mess of camping gear. On most days though, it's just the Snugtop/Prinsu/hi-lift. I don't want a crazy amount of rake on the truck most of the time, but I don't want the ass dragging when loaded.

    They had stock again about 2 wks ago. Mine just showed up couple hr’s ago. Yeeewwwwww.

    I’m still undecided on option 2/3. May just flip a coin and if i need more or less will just switch it up

    I think I'm going to install them on Option 2 and see how it goes. I'm guessing 200 pounds of cap, 100 pounds of tent, and 200 pounds of other stuff would be the absolute max load on trips. Most of the time it's only the cap I'm driving around. Icon is recommending Option 3 for 600 pounds of constant load, so I'm thinking the ride might be rough for regular driving.

    I’ve posted a couple places already only cuz am in middle of install and would like some confirmation. The provided extra leaf, the long end goes toward the front of the pack correct? Going with option 2?

    I’m going to feel pretty stupid if those additional leafs in the RXT package are directional! I just assumed they were equal dimensions from the center pin.

    I don’t have my leaf springs installed on my truck yet, but I did swap out the third leaves on each (Option #2), and now they’re just waiting in the garage.

    There was no indication of any direction of the leaf in the Icon instructions, so I’m hoping they are not. If they are, should be an easy switch!

    Correct no mention to which orientation of the extra leaf. And yes one side is longer than the other on the extra leaf.

    Turns out I had one leaf correct, and the other leaf was incorrect. It was an easy correction though. The new leaf springs are on the truck as Option 2. There's definitely more height in the back, and I'm looking forward to seeing how they perform under full camp load! (Just gotta figure out when that can happen!)

    I talked with icon and they said the extra leaf that comes with the pack goes in long end to the back. They also confirmed what i noticed about the third leaf in the pack as it is delivered. That leaf being long end to the front of the pack. Although i did switch the one leaf around as they suggested for option 2. I am not so sure that it isnt suppose to go long end forward as well.

    With my topper and 130 lbs of tools i’m at 24” hub to fender. Only been on for about a wk now so may settle some. Ride is 1000% better than stock.

    Install is pretty straight forward.

    I have not yet, but will be in the near future. At full droop the brake lines are sketchy tight.

    Sorry third gen hoverer. Set at 2. Perfect. Helped keep the rake I prefer. Good for extra weight and looks great (at least to me).

    Looks good man! What size tires are you running and how much lift do you have up front?
