    Your truck is very nice. What were you running the Icons at. Lift height front and rear? Is the rear setup just the shackle lift?

    I found it on amazon and ordered two. Total for both was $11.00 shipped. Through parts express I think it was $4 just for shipping for one.

    Thanks!

    Height wise I'm probably at a 3" lift or a little under with the Icons. I basically adjusted front preload based on the rear height. I just wanted the front and rear to be even.

    The rear, for now, is lifted with 2" Toytec shackles. The leaf packs are oem replacement Dormans.

    With my old crappy, 2.5" front spacer lift, the kit provided 1.5" shackles and it sat pretty dead even front to rear. So the front needs to be about a 1" higher than rear to have it even.

    With the 2" shackles in the back, the front should be sitting around 3" total lift now. The highest you should go on a 4wd without serious strain on cv's.

    Honest answer: no. :confused:

    At most I'd estimate around 10 to the wheels.

    Couldn't hurt, it'll smooth out any air turbulence going into the TB vs the stock tube. I'm very happy with mine.

    I ordered it last night for $80 from Advance Auto. Can't wait for it to get here! It's going to be sick with my 6" deckplate.

    Seemed like a waste of time for me. Threw a CEL so I just put the plate back on. No more CEL...
