    Icon 2.5 remote resi's front and desert racing A-arms, Icon 2.0 resi's with deaver leaf pack with POly bushings. Softopper
    Just wanted to say thanks to MIcah at DSM.

    I first had fox remote resi's front and rear with dakar leaf pack and the setup rode like crap on road, good off road. Truck was totaled. Bought in dallas from local shop.

    Second time around second taco, went with icon remote resis valved to DSM specs for better on road ride. Also had specially valved rear resi's for dakar leaf pack. Also Desert uca's are tough and boxed vs tubular.

    No squeaks and excellent ride on and off road.

    Thanks,

    Brian Rummer

    Thanks Brian! Glad you are happy with your set up.


    Im not sure who you spoke to.. But yes out of a box, Icon has an aggressive valving, meant more for dirt use, but we have worked with them and developed a valving that makes for a much smoother ride on the street, with out loosing your ability to take it in the dirt and play!:D
