    How you all doin? Well, I am not sure where to begin. I own a 2007 Tundra. Building this thing when I can. I'm getting there. Some personal touches here and there. My main focus at the moment is outfitting my truck with a good all around suspension. Icon Stage 2 is where I'm leaning. More than I need, but would like improved handling and all around reinforcement. Big brakes after that and then supercharger. Bumpers and lights and more will come as I go. Anyhow, been reading a lot you'll posts and some good stuff on here. Now, since my focus is suspension, I would think steering is equal to if not more important to have done first, right? Looking for a good solid way to build and protect this thing all the way around, up and down. Build smarter and not harder.

    One last thing, I could sure use trusted dealers that like to deal. Anyone know anyone that can hookup Icon suspension, or anything for that matter...lol.....

    Why ToyTec over Icon? Did you use your stock UCA's? Did you do anything to the front end?

    I haven’t gotten everything on yet, but I chose them over Icon because they were in the budget, and they have great support for their product. Plus with this being my first lifted vehicle, I wanted to see how much I get into off roading I before I spent big money on suspension. If I get to the point where the Boss/Radflo kit isn’t enough, I’ll upgrade.

    Thats where im at right now. Not sure about my rear shocks and how much longer I'll get out of them. However, the UCA's are killing me. An extra $500 minimum tacked on right there. And thats not going with Icon. Anyone on here selling stage 5 kits for cheap? lol

    Welcome from AZ. The stage two Icon is about the same price as the toytec boss set up. As for the uca's you might not need them.
    So you have some options @sdhq_offroad sales Icon and also a vendor
