    yeah....either of the ones mentioned.....but just a heads up, the 5100's are a bit cheaper, if thats a factor, and they will still give a great ride!

    I'm loving my 5100's.I've had the rear leaf tsb done.Gave about an inch lift. You're asking about 2" (or more??) While they are less $$,ride great,they're no longer then the stock trd.shocks.Using these for off roading you may top them out.There is an easy extention mount you can get.It's up to you how hard you drive'em.For the street you'd be fine.

    The ICON's would go good with my ICON lift...but too much $$$. I am not seeing a P/N for the 5100's for 2" lift, but I do need to replace what I have, the upper cans actually have rust holes through. I'd like to know more about the extension kit...what's that?

    Would you really need a rear lift with coilovers? Wont the rear even itself out?

    If you set the coilovers to level the front, then no, you dont need a lift. :)

    I was told they raise the front 2" and go good with their add a leaf rear kit (3 leafs) which raise the rear 1". When I installed everything, the truck still sagged in the front, so I cranked the front coil overs some more which leveled out the truck pretty well. Measure the distance between the adjuster and the coil over head, (mine were 1.45" & 1.60" from the factory), I re-set both to 1.85" (they say not to go further than 2.13"). Hope this helps!

    Yeah easy to spend other peoples money...?? Actually didn't think this was the time or place, but not really happy with the ICON at the moment, $1095 for coil overs and I have some problems, I'm still trying to work some things out with them, but didn't feel like dumping another $472, and possibly be disappointed some more...

    If you're looking for cheaper options....

    Ranchos suck....
    OME's are good and have a nice ride (but pricier)
    I've been running Doestch Tech Prerunner shocks on my Jeep and they've been doing well - a bit on she 'stiff' side but they take the offroad abuse well. They're cheaper at $45 each.
    The regular Doestch Tech shocks (3000 series I beleive) are also good and cheap.
