    If my memory serves me correctly Icon uses a smaller additional piston to make them position and speed sensitive instead of the metering rod

    These KING shocks have a threaded body up top and the gold ring allows you to adjust preload on the coil spring to set a desired ride height.

    So with these I could raise the front up like 2 inch’s and still have the best ride quality on road and be able to off road run the hell out of it? How high can you raise the front up by adjusting that gold ring?

    Got a Mob Armor Switch mount for my iPhone 7+ from James @AlternativeOffroad last week. Been wanting one of these for a while and when I learned about their new GPS App, I went ahead and pulled the trigger.

    http://www.alternativeoffroad.com/Mob-Armor-Mob-Mount-Switch-Modular-Phone-Mount_p_1147.html

    Mob Armor designs their switch style mounts for off-road intended use and holds the phone securely in place while "mobbing" through the desert. Build quality is great and I'm confident it'll hold up better than any other mounts on the market. Yes, they're pricier than alternative options but you get what you pay for.

    The Gen 1 Raptors allowed for more mounting options on the drivers side of the center dash panel but the Gen 2's don't have that kind of real estate. I settled for the location under the 12 and 110 Volt panel. It works pretty decent in that area and isn't too far but also doesn't interfere with any dash controls or impede line of site.

    The GPS App is downloadable through the App Store and has a ton of cool functions. It's a great option for guys not wanting to go with a full tilt Lowrance setup.
