    Lets hear what you all think of this to replace the all ProComp set I have now.

    Fox extended travel coilover w/remote up front
    King 2.5 w/remote rear +1"-2"
    Total Chaos or Camburg 1.25 upper arms
    Icon leaf pack

    Also is there any interfearance issues with this I should know about?

    That's a great setup! Very similar to mine, except I have extended King coilovers with compression adjusters and Camburg ball joint uca's.

    I don't know enough to comment on your selection, but I'm thinking of something similar except all Icon, and not as heavy duty.

    Icon 2.5" ET coilover
    Icon tubular UCA
    Icon 2.0 RR rear shocks
    Icon 1.5" AAL

    Always looking to see what others are doing. I could be swayed to do something else myself. Only looking for 1.5" total lift with factory rake but improved performance is key.

    I was also thinking of all Icon till I saw some scary looking photos and posts of broken top plates here on the forum. one also had a busted shock tower. My guess is they were getting air or pounding hard but Holy &$^*.

    Tacomanator, how are you liking your setup? What do you have out back? Also looks like some rough cutting was done in the wheel well. Whats going on there?

    The wheel well isn't cut, I had to bend it quite a bit to install the uca's, then pound it back into place. It's a step everyone has to do when installing uca's. Some people just make it look prettier than others.

    In the rear I have 2.5" Kings with remote reseis at stock height. Icon AAL to come soon...

    I'm really happy with the setup. Rides nice on the street and soaks up the bumps in the dirt.

    So I think I've decided on the Icon stage 4 kit from down south. Anyone have some honest feed back on this kit I'd love to hear it.:confused:

    How much lift do they claim out of the stage 4? That looks like a sweet setup.
