    Thanks for the reply Shack.
    No Dez running here locally but Utah, Arizona, New Mexico, and Wyoming has tons.
    Like a lot of guys the Toyota is also a truck I drive on the street. So it has to have good road handling characteristics as well.
    Part of me thinks I'd be "Just Satisfied" with Old Man Emu, but I want more performance as well as lift.
    I'll keep reading on the forum but a lot of places are having black friday sales now and I can get a good deal (20% off Icon) if I order by tomorrow.

    Did you install your system? If so, any portion of it a real pain to do? I only have experience with live axle set-ups. I've never done an IFS front. But it looks manageable to me. Any tips?

    Thanks
    Jeff

    I see your in Colorado, Me too, Colo Springs area. My 2012 FJ needs some modification.
    Been thinking about buying an Icon stage 2 with Icon Tubular UCA's.
    I don't need a "Rock Crawling Kit" just a good reliable kit that can hold up to driving desert 2 track at moderate speed with some load on the truck.

    At $2,500 do you think it's a quality suspension. I will also be adding an adjustable track bar and maybe the Rokmen rear upper and lower links. Do you think it's an over the top kit for the application I describe?
    I only want to spend the money 1 time and be satisfied with the results.

    I plan on installing it myself as I have built several Land Rovers with similar types of 4 link systems.

    Whats your opinion? Jump on it and don't look back, or look at other options?

    Thanks
    Jeff

    If you have any of the kit's still left, I'd love to purchase 1 from you. Just let me know price/shipping and I'll make it happen.
    Thanks!
