    I’ve been in both and icons seem to be softer to me, slightly biased since that’s what I’m running but I have no complaints, so I recommend them. Deavers aren’t bad either in any way, but the icon modularity is a huge plus instead of buying a new leaf pack.

    Since we're on the subject of rack and overland builds, this is one of our AO trucks that look significantly different now.

    Hope this helps you out, @sixshooter_45!

    We did an overland setup on this truck. We ran a Leitner Designs ACS Rack, MAXTRAX, Engel MT45 fridge, and a CVT Mt Shasta Extended. The tent was 120 lbs, random gear was about 50, between the EZ-Up, MAXTRAX, straps, bags, etc. Fridge was about 50. And the rack itself is 70-ish. All together, it was a really really light set up. It was roughly 350-400lbs depending on other cargo and how heavy the coolers were :)

    To manage this setup, we ran the Icon rear leaf spring kit set at option 2. At option 2, the rear gets a 1" lift for a 400lb constant load so it tied in nicely. We ran RPG 2.25" collars on the front. This truck is a 2017, so do keep in mind that 2017 trucks ride lower in the front than 2019-2020 trucks.

    Here's a few pictures of it, from rendering to reality:

    Since then, it's a totally different animal. We took off the rack, changed up the suspension. It now has 3.5s coming through the bed in the rear, cut frame bumpers, 37s, front/rear glass, and a bunch of other fun stuff!

    If you are going to use Nick, check out his brother and his company. He is; Rick at Napollo-Boptics and has this at a slightly higher sale price. He’s a semi helpful contributor to this forum:
