    OK, here we go. I plan on purchasing a new 4x4 DC Taco and am going with all the TRD "stuff" I can including SC, Brake Kit, Cat Back, etc.

    As far as suspension, I want to minimize lift while inproving street/off-road performance. I was thinking about going TSB Leaf Pack, OME CB drop, TC or CB UB, and Icon ET Stage II w/ OEM overload.

    I also like the Road Armor front and rear bumpers and will likely go with them.

    I'm an urban redneck and routinely tow, haul, and have been known to push the GVWR on occasion...on an F150. I can be a bit taxing on my vehicles and don't like them to tell me no.

    And now for my ???'s:

    How do the ICON CO's stand up to aftermarket bumpers?

    How would my proposed rear suspension stand up to the increased torque from the SC? Axle wrap is a concern.

    From what I have read, the 3 leaf progressives with the OEM overload should net about 2 inches. What would the TSB springs add?

    Any insight on how such a setup would ride? I want to keep all four corners planted on road and not suffer much for articulation off.

    I'm in VA, so have to adhear to bumper height laws. Any idea what the bumper measurements would be with such a setup? I would run the front COs as low as possible without making my truck look like a wedge. It would also be nice to know what the stock bumper heights are.

    Thanks in advance for your input.
