    So i just got quoted on and Icon stage 2 kit w/install alignment otb for $1800 out the door

    http://www.iconvehicledynamics.com/store/products.php?product=05%252dUp-Tacoma-Suspension-System-%252d-Stage-2

    i plan on using the truck to go on offroad trips and doing offroading
    and ive heard alot of good things about icon
    now does this price seem reasonable for this deal or can i possibly get it cheaper?

    also is there any other setups i might wanna consider instead of the stage 2 icon?

    i know ima have to upgrade my uca's right when i get it done i was thinking total choas ucas is there any others i might wanna consider instead of the total choas ucas?

    no you would have to get the stage 3 kit and comes with the icon ucas but that kits jumps another to 2900 i think

    ya you dont necessarily need the icon ucas. look into total chaos, camburg, light racing, all pro, and downsouth motorsports now has one. research em.still should go for the stage 2 if you can afford it

    you will definitely clear 33's with some triming.i know cause i am. im planning on running a 295/70/17 soon. but ya there are good deals on the uca's out there just gotta find em. since you in fullerton, call up sonny at downsouth motorsports, or email him and mention that you belong to tw. he should be able to give you a good quote on the ucas. for what its worth, i just added the same kit onto my truck and i love it. im running the camburg ball joint ucas, cause im still new into taking my truck into dirt. if it progresses to an addiction, ill upgrade to a uni-ball control arm. but right now i love the way it rides.

    You will need trimming to clear 33s.

    Also, I would advise getting to know your vehicle and maybe doing the lift install yourself. You start offroading, eventually you're going to have to do a field repair.

    What are your thoughts on the SPC's? I linked one from toytec below. I still might just go with the stage 2 kit and add some good UCA's as they seem to be necessary to get the best alignment.
