    New pro owner here, love it. Just curious how many miles are you guys seeing out of your fox shocks before replacing them?

    Good question Sam. I'm also digging the suspension on the '20 Pro. I'm hoping the shocks will go 100,000 miles, but obviously will depend on many factors. How much we haul and tow, and how aggressively we drive off road, the conditions we drive in, etc. Plus, mechanical stuff breaks sooner or later.

    My previous Tundra Off Road came with the factory Bilstein's and then I converted to Bilstein 6112/5100 combo. The ride became a bit more stiff. But, neither configuration rode as well as the Pro. I'm really enjoying it. I'm taking it onto the playa in the Alvord Desert this weekend.

    2020 PRO owner here...I’m not quite as optimistic...hoping for a strong 50k...then move to a high quality suspension like ICON.

    For what toyota charges for those shocks, I would hope you guys get at least 100k out of them.

    I got 100k+ on my factory Bilsteins on a Gen1 tundra. One of them started to leak so replaced the set. Hoping for the same out of the Fox set up. Admittedly, I drive like a Grandpa.... come to think of it, I am a Grandpa. WTF?

    Can you not rebuild them? Are they not normal Fox's?

    I've read somewhere here where one of the members reached out to Fox on this subject and was told by them that these can be rebuilt.

    Oh, so just Pro owner things of buying the fanciest package and just throwing away the options they spent money on? That's good :D

    Not sure, but they look to be a special build for Toyota TRD. Looking at the Fox website, I don't see any offerings there that look to be the same.

    I found this video about the front and rear suspension on the '19-'21 Pro's. Doesn't address this question, but informative about the design.

    From the reading I've done here on the forum, it sounds like the Icon's are a nice setup for real offroad at moderate to high speeds, but they ride stiff at low speed and on pavement.

    Still a lot to learn for me, before I upgrade my stock 1794 suspension

    I've got 75k on my '19 and the suspension still feels great. No leaks or excessive bounce. I work in pipe line construction so she sees her fair share of off road abuse and towing
