    Nice truck dude! Do you have a high clearance rear bumper as well?

    I'm sure that 4.7 makes that truck haul some serious ass!

    No sorry. All I know is it came from a Lexus qx470. The guy I bought it from had it installed about a year ago. It runs great though and you can feel the power difference

    Yeah I definitely did, it was an extremely sketchy buy but everything seems legit so far so hopefully I don't jinx it by saying that

    Need more pics of the 4.7 in that bad boy!!


    And I spy spacers on top of those Icons :eek: :eek: :eek:

    Get rid of those ASAP...thats a lot of lift...lots of stress on your CV's and the rest of the IFS!

    Plus kinda counter productive to have $1200 coilovers and $500 UCA's and run spacers anyways...lol.

    That's what I was thinking it looked like but it's not high enough to have both, I thought maybe it just looked weird? I don't have the stuff to take it apart to make sure. If anyone in SoCal is running icons let me know so we can take it apart. I'll bring the beer and pizza

    I am 10000% sure there is a spacer in there. I have donnahoe coilovers (same as icon) and I can say that with certainty.

    See how thin the upper plate is:

    Its easy. Just unbolt the 3 bolts at the top of the shock tower, then unbolt the Lower shock bolt, pull the icons, then unbolt the spacer at the top plate of the icons via the three bolts that hold it on...then reinstall the icons.

    I know how to take them out easy, but I do not have a jack or stands. And maybe I can extend the shocks more, with the icon spanner wrench because it looks like a 3.5" lift maybe even just 3 with the spacer in. Because my 285's are rubbing when I turn, and on my old FJ my 285 ran perfect with the 3.5" icons

    always changing
    You might want to get coilovers rebuilt and upgrade to better springs to handle the extra weight of that swap. That is probably why the spacer in there

    definetly take the spacers out. Maybe just crank the coil overs further to achieve the same lift?
    and lets see some videos/pictures of that engine!
