    I seen some guys Taco and it looked just the way I wanted it. All black, bhlm, black trd grill. It looked hella mean. And it makes me wanna get MT tires at 285.

    And by any chance does anyone know what shock brand that would be? And the rear shock comes along with like a little one also. Sorry I'm new lol.

    Thanks

    hmm maybe I'll check it out. It's kinda hard cuz I'm on my iphone. But I think they were the same brand. Kinds silverish with the blue "DR" kinda at the top

    Dylan took over the company and it is now merged with ICON. Talk about first class products, the only way to go IMHO. :)

    The ICON's are the ONLY suspension that is made for the TACO and the FJ. It was designed to maintain the BEST handling on and off road for the vehicle's. It's the Rolls Royce of suspension systems, it's not a lift kit. :)

    Hmm doesn't the c/o go up to 3.5" wouldn't that be considered a lift along with the rear shocks and leaf pack?

    Correct me if I'm wrong

    No not really, it's considered a Suspension System. Lift kit raise the vehicle so you can fit larger tires, but try to maintain the factory ride by relocating the factory suspension by using "Brackets". The nice thing about the DR or ICON, as you add a hevy bumper then a winch, your front will sag back down with the added weight on all suspensions. With the DR or ICON, you just "dial" it back to where the vehicle stance should be. I hope this helps.

    well then there's actually really no point of me getting the icons right now to start off. I'm good with going with the ome shocks all around and the ome coils with aal. Would that give me the full 3" lift cuz I do wanna fit in some 285/70r17 or 285/75r17.

    Engage Offroad long travel front and rear with some fat tires.
    if you plan to actually use the truck offroad, then invest in the coilovers...

    if looking to lift for the sake of bigger tires and cruise the strip mall, then you will be fine with a cheap coil spacer lift..

    be prepared for a stiff ride after lifting...
