    Sell em to me cheap ya know you want to.... :D

    On a serious note my OME setup rides great (881's). Im hoping the Nitrochargers w/882's and the top plate spacer hold up my bumper, winch and skids. That is when it gets here.

    I heard the 882s are 500lb and I dont know what the Icons are,they told me it was for a 150lb extra,Ive raced enough off road cars in my day and its way off (to much rebound)I have to much preload in the springs and thats F-N with the rebound,I could lower the Nit presure to slow down the rebound but these shocks dont have shrater valves,they have some sort of needle valve and my nit bottles wont work,

    OME setup with Nitros and 882's. I have the ARB bumper and winch and all is fine and ride is great. Take a look at my build and you will see some pics with the 881's and 882's, also have the Dakar spring pack in the rear with Nitros. The 881's were not near heavy enough so I had to go with the 882's. Rides like a cadi. :cool:

    Call DSM, they can help find the right coilover with the right valving and spring rate

    Research then. It's well known Icon valves digressively, and it's well known what digressive valving does on pavement.
