Okay here goes, feel free to call us on this if my post doesn't make sense:
The icon set up was great on and off road. When we were at high speeds (Well high speeds for off road use, maybe 35 MPH) the icon kit absorbed the big bumps and really felt stable.
The zone kit come with a pretty cheap front set up, if you watch our video you can see that they give you a strut and you reuse the factory coil and upper mount. When I get to high off road speeds and hit a good size hole or rock i get a "Dead" sound up front from the zone kit.
While we are comparing the trucks, keep in mind the Zone kit has to deal with 20s and 37s, while the red FX4 only have 18s and 33s. So I have way more rolling weight for the zone kit to handle.
We are going to upgrade the zone kit with a set of coil overs and that will give us 2 more inches of lift and maybe a better ride. We also have some control arms to install very soon.
