    yeah, I’d didn’t state that correctly from what was rattling around in my head.
    I meant to say luck with the RXT and not so much with other Icon option, i.e, add a leaf.

    Trying to type to fast and not explaining it in detail.

    It makes way more sense in my head.

    My tundra is carrying about 1100lb all the time. I used the icon helper pack for around 2 years, while I did extensive research and study for a better solution. By better, I mean that almost immediately after installing the icons, it was evident that they were inadequate.
    Ended up with a set of custom Alcan leaf springs and now it’s riding perfectly.
    The big caveat is that it is only working so well because the load is constant. If I were to remove the load from my truck, I’m sure the ride would be horrible and stiff.

    I guess that’s one benefit of the RXT system Is you could adjust for long term weight or load changes if you changed up the build.

    Lots of reviews kinda like that about icon leafs. I steered clear due to this forum. Maybe even your experiences. Thanks!

    Decked + GFC popup here ... Toytec 1.5 shackles (set @ 1") and 5160s, along with Ride Rite bags around 5-10psi, and they sit in Daystar cradles. Still have the 5100s at the top setting up front and it's about 1/2" lower in front vs. the rear. Installing the 6112s soon, went for the highest setting. Trying to keep things mild and close to stock.

    Man I like the GFC’s. So cool. Wait list is ridiculous though. What’s the weight on your camper?

    They spec them at ~ 300lbs ... being that this is the XL version, maybe closer to 350; either way, light enough that I can still load up and not be too concerned about the pitiful GVWR for these trucks.

    I have a pretty heavy ATC cap with drawer mounted to the roof and an uptop overland rack along with a bedslide so the ongoing weight is substantive in back. I have bilstein 5100's all around with a plus two cb shackle in back with min rake...shims in front are two on drivers side one on passenger side. lift about 2.25 inches. I am about ready to add a c4 hybrid bumper with a winch...that will take it to an extra 250 lbs up front. I will add either a fox toytec or icon 2.5 coilover plus 2.0 in rear with a plus 3 shackle in back....I will likely keep 295/70/18's for now

    Stance looks good with all that weight.
