    Nice! What else do you have planned as far as mods? Leaf springs are an absolute game changer. Deaver plus 2’s will get you about stock height and on my truck, the icon springs sat about an inch high (without the add a leaf) before the camburg shackles.

    You read my mind... Deavers +2s and shackles are def in the works. Also thinking about possibly the ADD pro bumper...I have the rigid pods now that I could just swap to the new bumper. Next thing will be paint matching the fenders and bumpers

    I got a good deal on my Icon springs which is why I went with them, but the deavers have 3 more leaves which it seems would add to ride comfort as they can be more progressive. I bought the shackles because the rear end sat way too high with the icons and I needed to lower it enough to where I could raise my coilovers and make it level without too much front lift. To be completely honest I didn’t notice any difference in ride comfort even though the stock shackles will technically add effective spring rate with the vulcanized rubber bushings.
