    Ive been on the same boat between the two, but fox had never let me down. Used them on many projects and have had great experience with them.

    I guess stick with what you know..... I ran fox on one of my race quads and never had a issue, I know icon has a lot of really good technology in there shocks but not so tried and tested as fox for sure.

    I have been a fan of Fox but not so much after seeing how fast the Raptor shox wear out.

    You will get a lot of fan boy answers, and I can't comment on the icons. However, I've had the Fox 3.0's for almost 60k miles. I've run them hard off road and put on a lot of highway miles. My truck is a DR and a weekend warrior. We love to take the truck on road trips as well.

    I've sent the shocks to RPG for a rebuild after about a year and 35k miles. Corey said they looked fine. I'll probably wait twice as long for the next rebuild, unless I notice something first.

    If your ready to move up, then I would suggest calling both RPG and icon. Both guys there are very intelligent and both companies have been commended on FRF for their customer service. After you talk to them and describe how you plan on using your truck, you'll have a good idea of what will fit you best.

    I think either way you go, you can't go wrong.

    Had both as you know, preferred the fox's by far.
    If you go with the dsc, get them to valve them so that all adjustment on the dsc gives less compression, rather than more.
    As in, adjusters to full compression gives fox's recommended valving.
