    Congrats on the new Taco. You'll love it. But stay away from this forum. It will drain your bank account :p

    nice, looks good... congrats on the set up... I have a question on the Icon, what is your initial review on the ride of the stage 4 on the road? I am very close to pulling the trigger on the same kit, Thank you for any feedback in advance.

    Thanks...On road the Icons with factory settings were a little firmer at low speed over little bumps than I thought they would be but once I got up to speed > 30MPH, they were great.

    I've since adjusted the fronts about 2 inches to get rid of some minor rubbing and to level out the front (although still has some rake to it) and the ride is definitely rougher but still not bad.

    I totally told myself I was going to stay stock as it replaced my daily driver Sonata 2.0T. Just needed a truck to haul dirt bikes for the family. I even kept my 2012 Corvette GS because I didn't get the Tundra Platinum which should easily keep my skinny pedal disease busy. But...

    After joining this forum and seeing all the available, really good, mods I didn't last a week. Bought a Softopper two or three days after taking delivery. Decided I NEEDED the supercharger about two days after that. I ordered it one week after taking delivery and just picked it up tonight from the install. I plan a 'small' lift, rear ARB locker, 'slightly' bigger tires, winch, rock sliders, etc, etc...:eek:

    I can also speak for the ICONS. I recently installed the Stage 5's with the CDC adjusters. This allows you to adjust the compression damping on the fly with a click wheel on the resi's. Settings range from S or (1) to H or (10), 2-9 in between. If you purchase the ICONS without the CDC they come preset to the 4 position. My ICONS were set at 4 on the dial when I installed them, and I really like the ride at that setting so far. I haven't tried the softer or harder settings as of yet, but will in short time to see the difference. I can tell you that coming from a spacer/block lift to these...it's a freaking HUGE difference! Ride is sooo nice! I highly recommend them. I also purchased the 2.5 version F/R which has a little more travel over the 2's. Not sure if the OP has this setup, but regardless, they Rock!

    Hey Squint, where did you buy those Stage 5 CDC shocks. I see them for the FJs on the Icon site but not for Tacos. I've got the 2.5s as well but not the CDCs and I want me some of dat!

    That's the beauty...you can add the CDC's when you want...:D

    I ordered them from TRDparts4U.com I live in Hawaii and the weight shipped was 147lbs! Would you believe they F'd my order and then shipped them for free because of a delay...hehe I scored!:cool:

    I like your Bushwackers as well. My buddy has them on his, but he complains that they rattle when he's off-roading. He plans to Mod them and drill holes with isolater bushings to snug it down and hush the rattle. I might be going that route too...

    Truck looks amazing! Where did you get your sport hood? and my dealer just told me that they don't have the supercharger for the 2014 yet while maintaining warranty. What did you tell your dealer or were they just down to install no problem?

    How is the supercharger I am getting the mod bug and so far I have gotten weathertech floorliners and next is mid travel suspension followed by TRD exhaust and a CAI. Supercharger may be on the list if it is worth it.

    Change those settings to 1 and then 10 and give us review, man! :D
