    Those are 2 inches only as well, I am looking for a mid travel kit with a 0-3 inch lift.

    Also SAW are Icons in different clothing with lesser lift option.

    I want a solid mid travel front end and plan to use an add a leaf from icon in rear and new upper control arms and coil overs up front for a solid lift and all terrain ride quality.

    I was happy with my 5100 because they only cost me $200.. but they ride like $200 shocks anymore.

    I know a cheap alternative is add the Old man emu springs to the 5100 for more lift but I would still be on stock components and that's what I want to upgrade from.

    if you want to get the full use out of a uni ball UCA then you have to run an extended length coilover to get the extra inch of down travel and have a true "mid" travel suspension

    icon is the only company i know of that makes an ext length coilover

    get icons... i've had 2 sets of their CO's and could not be happier

    Icon uses a digressive valving Set up while sway a way uses a progressive valving set up.

    In reality kings, saw/camburgs, fox, and icon/Donahoe are all great products. Just pick a color.

    Talked with dan from wheelers before and he said SAW makes an ext travel coilover, and the camburg coilover bridges the gap between stock travel and extended travel.

    I am going to go Icons, The 1 inch longer travel ones are on back order but the normal ones are available.

    Going to go with Total Chaos Uppers with them, So it wont really matter because I dont plan to over extend them.

    Going to talk to ORW Monday about the stuff.

    If all goes well I should have it all installed by next monday.

    Speed Freak Jason will hook it up with the install.

    Dude if your getting the UCA's wait to get the extended travel shocks. You wont over extend them if you get UCA's. If you dont you will wish you did. If you dont get the extended travel shocks there isnt much point to getting UCA's

    That's what I was just thinking, they are going to check the back order status and place the order for the longer icons, I really just want the ability to get a little wild and still drive home. ;)

    I would pay extra for the zinc coating. My only complaint is mine have oxidation. Didn't every wax em or whatever....

    I love my extended travel icons. I agree I like to get a lil wild and still drive it home.
