    After about 2 months of searching and trying to get something together, Brandon over at Metal Tech stepped up and took care of my buddy and myself. Both of us were outfitted with Icon kits. My buddies FJ ended up with a stage 6 kit, and I bought the individual components to essentially make mine at stage 5 (using DSM UCAs as opposed to Icon).

    Everything was delivered on time, I have ZERO complaints about the entire transaction between the 2 trucks. We had a mild hiccup on the rear shocks as Icon shipped me one with zero nitrogen, however Brandon took care of it. I called him on Monday morning, and I had the new shock in my hands 11am Wednesday.

    I don't have any good pictures of the trucks, maybe we will get some at some point, but to anyone shopping around for modifications or anything truck related, don't look these guys over. If I didn't buy everything I could put on my truck from them already, I would be going back.

    Thanks again guys.

    I've been looking into icon stage 4 versus buying everything individually with fox shox or some kings. I haven't really heard anything bad about the icon stage 4. i like the way your truck sits, how much different is the stage 5 from the stage 4?

    Diff between 5 and 4 I think is the UCAs. I did not want the add-a-leaf, I wanted a new pack, so getting a kit didn't make sense for me. A buddy of mine has the 1k Icon UCAs, they are nice to look at, but I can't justify the extra 500.

    I don't remember the pricing, I got in on one of their "X% off icon stuff" sales. If you look at their recent sales, I think they run 10% or something similar, so it was most likely that...+ UCAs + AP leaf pack...I stopped counting like everyone else. I'm happy with it, that's all that matters.
