    Hope everybody is doing well. I have the icon stage 5 (2.5 coilover front, piggyback in rear w leaf springs) and stage 2 secondary in front. Thinking about upgrading to a icon 3.0 coilover and the icon rxt in the back or just going to long travel in the front with rxt in the back. Seems like a waste removing the front system but I'll let everybody chime in. I have a spidertrax 1.25 spacer I am going to put on shortly to give it a better stance and hopefully performance. Ill probably add some glass, sdhq or something similar. Not sure if 3.0 will do much more than what I already have. I will need a stiffer spring than I have currently have and probably need a re-valve. I have added weight---warn winch and magnuson! Current spring rate accommodates the supercharger only. So many things to consider and any feedback will be welcomed!IMG_20190426_183414_275.jpg IMG_20190426_182805_383.jpg 20190426_174827.jpg

    One thing to consider is that the Icon 3.0 has a 600lb spring and there are no other spring options for it.

    Really? Can't you go through eibach and get a different spring rate?

    If you want more get LT. Buy once cry once.

    I spent 7k on MT with bypasses then ripped it out for LT. Best decision I ever made.

    I am right there if not more with the amount spent. I have beat on this set up pretty good and it held up but it does have me asking for more. Think I have seen some if your posts. You are running TC LT right? You are Socal as am I. Got anybody I should call for pricing and installation? You said around 11k right with glass?

    Yep I'm in Temecula. Call Tim at DMZ. He's well known in the tacoma world and he's built a lot of Tundras as well. Make sure you tell him I sent you so he'll be nice to you haha He did my entire suspension and also front and rear bumpers and frame boxing. Click my signature for my parts information

    A little of this and a little of that. Its pretty run of the mill.
    LT is not 30K. It’s like 27k if you do front and rear.

    Rookie move. Always round down when you’re justifying truck mods. So it’s $20k when you really think about it.

    LSK Race kit and rear links, 27k all in? Thats alot cheaper than I thought. Oh wait, doesn't include fenders

    TC tube kit has more ground clearance. Thats the number one reason. Also better customer service.

    Got it and thank you! Did you go full bed cage? I am thinking of going LT underneath the bed. I know it is a little less travel but they are claiming around 14. Pretty good I think. Thoughts?

    The new Rampage link kit is 10.6k no bedsides. They are advertising 21" bumped and strapped. I believe the canti is 16". I will probably be doing full LSK LT, but not for a while. Wife is saying no cutting body till it's payed off.
