    I'm thinking about suspension; I'm thinking a 3" lift with 265/75R16's on stock wheels.

    I'm comparing my options, and I definitely want something that will still ride well in 50,000 miles (with maintenance) and not negatively affect my truck. Money isn't really an issue, though I don't have the cash to spring on long travel.

    So, if you guys were me, OME, Icon, or something else?

    Right now I'm leaning towards:
    Front: Icon coilovers, Total Chaos UCA's
    Back: Bilstein 5100's, 2" AAL (Truck doesn't have TSB)

    Other option is 885's and OME or bilstein shocks in front.

    if you have the money then get CO's. I have the FOX 2.0's and I love them.
    for the rear I have 5100's and the wheelers 3 pack AAL. I started with the toytec aal and it was a little stiff to me so thats why I switched it out.

    check out my build page for pics and whatnot

    The ome and icons aren't really comparable. More like toytec and ome. But if you have the money and plan on offroading I would go with coilovers and uca's.

    I agree, I have Light racing Coilovers which are the same as Icon and love them, but if you are going high performance in the front might as well do the rear the same with some Dakars and 5125's or 5150's.
