    Running with either the full ome kit
    Or
    Running 5100 kit from ORW

    Was gonna run 5160/6112, but for what I'll be doing either of the above kits will be plenty, plus saving that extra money can go towards a bumper lol. Just debating now between the two above. I hear a lot about the Dakars squeaking, but haven't seen too many reviews on the icon rxt. Did any of you have one and switch to the other? TIA!

    Dakar’s ride very rough. Even with weight.

    I’ve got RXTs at option 2 on my Tacoma and actually switching to option 2 on my Raptor.

    I love them. The ride is great and hold up weight very well.

    Hit me up, I’m happy to help get you set up with a full kit and hook you up.

    RXT's are definitely a good all around setup. Ride is great, and they hold up well weighted. Tend to squeak if not cleaned well. But, nothing like Dakar's

    Got Dakar HDs. No squeaks. Doesn't ride stiff even with only 120 pounds in the bed.

    Probably can't go wrong with either.

    I've got Icon on setting 2 with no weigh and they ride pretty well. They ride great with added weight and do very well off road.

    I'm quite happy I went with them. Another shoutout to @Tretiak30 for his good prices and awesome customer service

    Running RXT set at stage 1 on my 19 and love them... buttery, plush ride on/off-road without any squeaks that I've observed since installation.
