King 2-3 Inch Coil-over System

Anyone running these coilovers on their truck? I've seen these on the truck toyz website but I dont think i've ever seen anyone that has them on their truck. Just wondering, currently I've got the readylift 2.5 sst on my truck and I'm looking for something with better ride quality and I'm figuring these or the Icon 2.5 will be my best bet. Just thought the coilovers would be really cool lookin in the wheel wells and may ride even better than the Icon....

Here's a link for anyone else interested: King 2-3 Inch Coil-over System - 2005-2010 F250/350 4wd - 2008-2010 F250/F350 SRW 4wd - Truck Toyz Store

FWIW
I was going to do this system on my '08 F250 but Sage Carli recommended that I do the Bilstien leveling coil (2 1/4" of lift) with the King 2 1/2" shock. He stated that to get a coilover with that little lift sacrifices too much travel. Net travel with that coilover would be 8" where the Bilstien and King shock would be 10" of travel at the same ride height. I did the Bilstien set up about 30,000 miles ago using 37 x 12.5 - 20 on the factory wheels and I've been very happy.
hope this helps,

Exactly the type of feedback I was looking for... How's the ride quality on rough roads or possibly gravel roads with your set up? And any pics?

In regards to the ride it is noticably better on road and quite a bit better than stock off road, but it's still an F250. For comparison on a given dirt road where at an aggresive pace you would go 15mph stock I can now go 25-30mph and I would have gone 35mph when I had an H2. No pictures right now but maybe this is a good enough excuse to take a few.
