New ICON Front 2.5 Shocks

These things are awesome. Ride great...even more plush than the 2.0's that came off.

I like the extruded resevoirs those have. It adds some extra eyeball to them. Matches your truck well too!

Jesse, do the tires rub on the rezzie at any point during the turn?

On my 06 I had a rize lift with dual shock hoop from fabtech and my fox rezzie shocks would rub on full turn.

Why did you get ones you had to use stem to eye adapters? Thought they were making them with stem mount for our trucks?

I did not really pay attention there...but I bet those are gonna rub like crazy...going to have to rotate the shock.

I had to put my rezzies down lower, and back so they would not rub on mine.

I've got about 2" of clearence between them at Full Lock. There is no way they'd ever hit even at full articulation. If I moved the resi back towards the fenderwell the distance shrinks, but not enough to hit the tire.

Because I needed somewhere to mount my limit straps and I wasn't about to drill holes in the frame.

Good idea. I have a set of limit straps hanging in the garage cause I didn't want to drill a hole to mount them.
