    I'm looking for the best long term solution for a 3" lift.

    If you dont offroad much and just want a good quality coilover that rides nice. The Icons are a good buy, for the quality you get.
    Kings are a little over kill if you dont offroad much.

    If you dont mind not having the adjustability with coilovers, then the OME set-up is nice...

    But for long term a good Coilover thats rebuildable is the way to go I think.

    Thats nothing! Waited 5 Weeks for the Fox. I've run every coilover out there. Every color. To be honest, thats really the only difference between them. They all have essentially the same design/technology.

    I use a Fox. It has a remote reservoir, which to me, is just cool looking. I will never have a bolt on coilover hot enough to utilize the remote. Not a lot of people will unless you are racing the truck in a stock class, and the suspension is cycling at fast rates for extended periods of time.

    I've been extremely happy with it. 2 years of maintenance free service, and they still look great.

    Good luck with them!
