    It really does look good.

    With those tires, How much different from the stock highway tires is ride quality and noise? Just curious.

    Thanks

    Questions for experts... will a 6in suspension lift require a drive shaft extension, cb drop, etc?
    Has anyone seen the need to change the gear ratio with 33s or bigger?
    Cheers

    Im about to order the 700lb 14" springs myself. I'm not sure how so many are running 600lb springs on these trucks and maintaining lift heights. My icon 650lb have already sagged almost 1/2 an inch over a month. (I do drive it hard offroad). I've brought the preload up so it's level but there is no way that's going to workout even with a lighter weight low profile winch bumper.

    Has anyone installed Icon upper control arms? If so, did you have to bend the fender to get the bolt out?

    I've done it. I just cut them out and had replacements on hand to install backwards with locktite. I believe that is the general consensus around here. The 2016 has more sheet metal and would require allot more bending and mangling. I have not try to bend it so I can't confirm this.

    ^^^This is the way to do it.

    I did things the hard way with my TC UCA's. Tried to bend the inner apron to get the bolts out, but there is no where near enough clearance to do it (unlike 2nd gens). Had to unbolt the cab mounts and lift the body to get them out. Way easier to cut the heads, then just install backwards.

    Was hoping someone could give me advice on what springs I should run to help lift/support the front. I have the Fox Ultimate lift from Toytec with Race Series LCAs

    The two replacement springs I have on hand are:
    1. Eibach 14in x 3in ID Springs: 14" x 3.0" ID - 700lb/in
    2. Pac Racing 14" x3" 650lb
    For weight, I have an Pelefreybilt aluminum front bumper with a Warn Xeon Platinum.

    Thanks in advance!!

    I'd run the 700lb. coils so you can avoid having to preload them.

    Also, DAMN that is a good looking rig

    Appreciate it! Do you think that will raise the front up a little with the spings being an inch longer than the stock 13" 600lb springs?

    Lift is about 2 to 2.5" with 35s. Everything has been cut/trimmed/pounded, so no issues with there.

    Just want the from lift more and stock springs could support it.

    Just out of curiosity what are you lift numbers are you looking for and are you running 600 or 650lb springs right now?
    I don't not have direct expierences but have been researching this as I'm about to move to a winch bumper. I'm looking at the slimline bumper from SSO that weighs about as much as your aluminum setup. I'll also be running synthetic line so hoping my weight will be under 140lbs total. I talked with sdhq and asked sso. They both seem to think the 13" 650 lb springs I'm running will be fine. I asked about 650lb and 700lb 14" spring and the general opinion is the 700s will ride like dirt and the 650s will block due to the increased length. I was initially dead set on 700s but there is so many variables lol. I think as of now I'm just gonna slap that bumper on and see what happens. Maybe say screw it and sacrifice a little up travel and throw a 3/4 top plate spacer on there to level it out if need be. It's mind boggling lol.:boom:

    It should lift it upanother 1/2-3/4" for sure. Your springs will have a higher spring rate and therefore should not say as much. Damn, 35's? Can you take a picture straight on at one of the tires? I'd like to see how it fills the wheel well. Thanks!
