    That looks like machined delrin or some other composite, but I doubt it’s 3D printed.

    I think you're right that this might be Delrin.

    I absolutely love it, handles awesome on road and does great off-road. I’ll eventually upgrade my shocks to remote reservoirs with adjusters, but for now it’s rock solid

    I'm going to run their 1" spacer in the rear with my Icon Stage 4 kit for awhile. The rear spacer is pretty beefy.

    I've spoken to David @ Cornfed about the material they use. They CNC these spacers from blocks of ultra high molecular weight (UHMW) polyethylene. We've used the same material for docks & fenders when I worked in the marine industry. It can take a beating, that's for sure.

    Has anyone changed out shocks on a truck with AVS yet? I'm planning to do the TRD kit - wonder what kind of error codes I'm going to get.

    Looks like RC has a adjustable 2" and 3.5" struts available now. Thinking about doing the 2" to level my truck. Anyone have these installed and care to share how you like them?

    I’m stuck between the RC 2” strut with a 1” cornfed spacer in the rear, or just do the cornfed 2”x1” spacers. Not sure how much more “quality” the RC struts will be. I don’t off-road a ton, mostly use 4wd for snow. Just want the truck leveled (or close to). I tow a travel trailer, so keeping a little rake with the 1” rear spacer. Any advice?

    I can't get over how much I like the wheel tire combo. Would those have worked without the lift?

    I’ve been running the 3.5” RC kit for 9k miles no issues. Swapping the trd off road bilsteins & RC spacer tomorrow for the 3.5 M1 coil overs…. Will report back tomorrow.

    I probably would have gone with Fox if they were available but the Icons are working. 100% noticeable difference immediately, obviously. I scored the stage 3 kit for $1500 so that helped also!

    Well who doesn't want Kings?! Way more $$$ and wait time. The Icons are good for now, they're no slouch lol

    Did they run into any clearance issues with the sway bar drop kit and your skid plate? I know you have an aftermarket one. I'm running the TRD Skid Plate. There's very little clearance with the sway bar at the OE position with the TRD plate so I'm worried the Icon will cause interference issues.

    Sheesh! Why does the sway bar hang so far down on these trucks? Looks like its about even with the bottom of the LCA. Wonder if it would be possible to flip it and get some more clearance.

    Anyone running into front CV axle shaft issues with lifting the front of the 2022's without extended length CV axles. Wondering because the TRD kit comes with longer units to install with their lift

    Just curious...are you running the TRD Skid Plate? I can't tell 100% from your pics but it looks like you might have one.

    Yes. It is an issue. Probably have to use spacers for the skids to create some clearance for the sway bar drop kit. A better solution would be longer (or adjustable) sway bar links so spacers wouldn’t have to be used. I wonder if the Total Chaos links for the Gen 2 Tundra would work.

    That makes sense. I crawled under my truck last night to check the clearance with the sway bar in the OE position and noticed I couldn't even cram my pinky between the sway bar & the skid plate.

    I guess I'll pull the trigger on some nylon spacers from McMaster and drop the whole skid plate by maybe a 1/4" to 1/2". Probably a long shot, but do you recall how thick the sway bar spacers are that come with the Icon kit?
