    The long travel game beat me lol wanted a simpler set up. Plus I needed a v8 for towing my boat and we plan to get a rzr for a toy. And we like to travel so the tundra is more comfortable

    This will be a fun week!
    [​IMG]
    So after originally planning on full icons. And buying the rear icon shocks. I decided I wanted kings. I ran kings on my Tacoma and loved them. Not a fan of the icon digression valving and as far as the cdc goes I'll revalve if necessary. So on black Friday ordered a full king set up and will be installing this week along with wheels and tires if all goes accordingly.

    To further update I did sell my deaver lead pack locally the day I put them up for sale. And will be leaving the stock pack with TC shackle. I decided I tow too much and need the stock payload and have been disappointed in what I have seen the deavers do with a bed full of camping gear let alone my boat or hauler. So someday I may do a custom pack but for now being my DD tow pig stock pack it is.

    Since I switched to kings I no longer need the Icon rear shocks, will ship for a hell of a deal to a forum member, were never installed, 2.5" piggy back with CDC!!

    Seems like you lost a lot of money with your indecision's. Few hundred off the deavers and half price on the icons.

    3/4" lift on TC shackles, and as far as the deavers and icons go, the deavers i picked up locally as the previous owner used them as a temp set up while designing a LT set up, and I got a good deal on the icons from scratch and dent, just trying to recoup the cost on them!

    Unfortunately I bought the icons because they were a good deal, not because they were what I wanted, I have sense learned my lesson..

    @csuviper BTW you have done an outstanding job on your truck, looks great!

    Loving this set up! Much more comfy for a DD
    Sits dead level with the kings set at only 2" lift.
    [​IMG]
    The Methods keep the 305's tucked nicely
    [​IMG]

    They just barely contact the mud flaps at full lock, ended up doing the double standard instead of the standard.

    Drove to Tucson to deliver some icon goodies to Hunter @GTABurnout then while eating lunch we saw some weather happening around Mt.Lemon so decided to take a back way home to Chandler. Unfortunately at the very top we were stopped by Forest Service and had to turn around, snagged some pics along the way! KO2 did fantastic, super quiet and grippy. Although this 5.7 doing 85mph into a strong head wind raped my fuel economy! Since the tires it has dropped from an overall average of 16.4 to about 14.7.

    Went up to ShowLow for a bachelor party this weekend, loaded down with gear for 6 people the Tundy did great. First time offroading with the new set up as well. Did phenomenal, couldnt be happier. K02 did fine on dirt trails and kings ate everything else up.
