    I'd love to purchase a set but am having such a hard time deciding between these and Geisers springs. 1.73 vs. 2.25 lift. and either icons or Deaver's in the rear.

    Have the money just can't afford to make a mistake.

    Want to set up for overlanding but not sure if I'll be completely transforming the truck or going with an off-road trailer.

    But either way I still want to do front and rear springs.

    Well, the first thing to do is figure out how much weight you’re going to carry in the back and how much we need to support and at what height. I like the Icons because they’re modular.

    Once we know how much weight you’ll be carrying at what we’re going to set your rear height at, we can use the front kit to match.

    Of course both the Icon Collars and the Icon rear springs are modular so you can adjust front and rear height as needed.

    Feel free to send me a PM and we can go over options in more detail.

    On my old 2018 and now on the new 2019, I’m running an “overland” per se set up with a RTT on a bed rack. Havent set it up on the new truck yet but it’ll be comparable to the 2018.

    Currently on Eibachs and Icons on option 2 in the back but lowering it down a smidge with RPG billet shackles so there’s less rake unloaded.

    Personally I’m a much bigger fan of the Icons since you essentially get 3 packs in one for the price so you can fine tune the lift height you require and can always swap back and fourth. They ride a hair softer than Deavers as well and since each leaf is coated prior to assembly the coating tends to be a bit better versus Deavers that are coated once the packs are assembled.

    Unfortunately I never took a quality side profile picture with the set up, but here’s a slight idea. It’s going to be identical minus the ADS coilovers on the 2019.

    We’ve also got the Icons in stock if you need a quote. I’d be happy to provide one or just chat to help. I don’t mean to take anything away from Nick, but figured my small insight might help you out a bit.

    You are lucky I had a guy change his order to something else, so one kit popped back up but I'm officially OUT :(

    I just got the shipping info. You guys rock.


    Dumb question, will stock rims work with most after market upper control arms?

    I was thinking about icons but had read where a few folks had issues with them, I believe they were cracking or breaking don't remember exactly but more than likely it had to due with heat treat.

    If the heat treat process isn't controlled properly then the product will have issues.

    Right now I'm following "Keep it Dirty" YouTube channel as he just finished installing Eibachs on his 2020 and had Geisers on his 2017 so he going to make a comparison after getting some time on them.

    Solid setup you have running there.

    I’m about “thiiiiiiiiiiiss” close to pulling the trigger on upgraded leads just can’t decide if I’m going deavers or icons. FWIW I love my Icon Delta/Eibach combo up front, and I hear pros/cons of deavers/icons in the back. I like the modular aspect of the icons, but also hear about the “better ride” with the deavers in the back.

    Ultimately I’m due for a shock rebuild first, but decisions decisions when it comes to those rear springs.
