New 4.5" ICON

Thanks to Truck Toyz, I now have my lift kit installed and can't be happier with the ride quality and look! I went with the Icon 4.5" and then added the TEI spacer for the front as well as 6" block in the rear. Wheels are 22X10 and 37" Toyos. I also have the icon dual steering stabilizer but haven't put it in yet...

The EPA really hit a home run with this one!!! DPF equipped trucks produce 50% less emissions....but they use twice the fuelSounds like Obama math to me!!!!

The lift looks great!

So the Icon 4.5" lift with the added 1" TEI spacer doesn't need a longer pitman arm installed? You can just stay with the adjustable trac bar and the stock pitman arm? It's pretty cool if that's the case ... 5.5" lift with the stock pitman arm?

That is what I'm wondering. It seems like the drag link would be maxed out if that is the case.
