I think for myself that would be a lot better route as you get in-cab adjustability but also further suspension travel due to the Gen 2 shock geometry.
Further rear suspension travel only. How does the front conversion from Gen 1 to Gen 2 get more uptravel; unless you modify the fenders? This is the oem tire & wheel stuffed (with the shock removed), so there's nowhere to go unless you replaced the fender. 20220221_194706.jpg

That is correct on the height. I'm going stock shocks and either Icons or Deavers. The stock shocks have been on backorder for a while now.
I just did TSW moderate use tuned shocks, Geiser's, and Hamburg UCAs with ICON plus threes in the rear. The ride is better than expected. The truck is very stable at high speed. The progressive dampening is sweet for Seattle's busted concrete roads. The stiffer springs feel much better on take off. I didn't install the additional leaf spring that came with the Icons. Can't wait to get off road with this setup.
