    Toytec introduced a new ultimate lift with radflo coilovers 2.0 or 2.5, only about $100 more. They also have the option for light racing UCA for $300. Looks like a pretty decent setup, anyone have it yet? Pics?

    I got that exact set-up with the 2.0's. I like it but I could use a little better down travel, with the coilovers cranked to 3" of lift.
    other wise they ride great on road, havent tried them offroad yet.

    I threw them on right out of the box, and they gave me about 2"s of lift, then I cranked them to 3" when I did the rear 2" AAL.

    The pic of my CV is at 2" lift. At 3" lift, I have the diff drop in and the angle doesnt look too bad either, but def. cant go much higher.

    Dont have any flexing pics yet, sorry.....

    But Like I said before, at 3" I dont have much down travel, maybe 2".
    But I dont plan on doing much offroading, so I should be fine with these. (for now) :)

    After having these things for alittle while, I now Hate the ride! Its all right for most on road driving, but even then if I hit a small pot hole or bump. Its not smooth at all! stiff and hard... Plus If I come up to a speed bump, if I dont slow down to a crawl I will always Top Out. It freakin sucks! And they top out hard, with a loud thud or bang. Sounds terrible.
    And all this is at 3" lift. So my overview of these coilovers isnt very good, And I think they are more meant for a 2.5" lift max, bc they rode great at 2-2.5" lift. But not 3".

    I know alot of guys who love there Radflo's and say they ride great. But there just not what Im looking for in ride quality.

    I just upgraded to the Ext. Travel Icons and I will be doing a review about the difference as soon as they get here! :)

    Sorry havent posted! But the Icons are great! even at 3" lift they handle bumps and rough roads great!
    Rides better without the sway bar, but I really didnt like the extra body roll on turns and curves. So its back on....

    The Radflo's rode well without the sway bar also, but not as good as the Icons! lol...

    I just ordered a 1/4" top plate spacer for the driver side, bc I had to crank the Icons way too much to get rid of the Taco lean....
