So far less body roll than the yota had. Icon's are still new so they're pretty stiff. Ill update later on about that... havnt tried to flex it out yet

Swapped out the ****ty Rigid Industries led's for some bright *** china ones. Also took after lift measurements if anyone is interested... though I think my driveway isnt the most level because the rear measurements dont look right Note these coils are adjustable so your heights may vary. I actually didnt turn the collar more than a few times from what Icon had them set at. I measured from the frame up front; behind the bumper. And the bottom of the shackle mount for the rear. My bumpers may change so I wanted a static location.



Before Lift:
Driver Front - 18.5"
Pass Front - 18.25
Driver Rear - 24.5
Pass Rear - 24


After:
Driver Front - 21"
Pass Front - 21
Driver Rear - 24
Pass Rear - 25

Front fender to ground - 41.25"
Rear fender to ground - 42.5"

Nice looking truck, looking forward to seeing what more you have planned.
What was your issue with the rigid lights? And which china ones did you go with?

Interesting read regarding your tacoma. I traded in an 09 tacoma on my 12 f150 partially because of rust concerns as well. I noticed lots of rust starting on the frame, and lots of spots rusting on the exterior of the trucks as well. I'm a toyota guy...but its pretty unsettling seeing that kindof stuff start so early.

The RI's didnt cut it up front as fogs... they just are not bright enough and lack the throw. They are one of their 1st sets so I cant say how the newer, really expensive ones do. I cant complain with the $25/pc chinia led's though!



I agree with the rust concerns. I was very upset Toyota didnt do a thing, or even offer to help short of $750 extra on a trade. Sucks... I liked that truck. But on to newer things I go!




Here's a light comparison... same camera settings were used for the 3 shots
