Icon or Carli?

I want to put 2.5" of lift on my truck (front and rear) so I can fit 37" TOYO MTs. Is the Carli kit worth all of the extra money? (I'm looking at the most basic Carli kit.) I can't decided between the Carli or the Icon. All I want is to do is try to keep a stock ride. I'm not trying for a Caddy feel here, but want it as nice as possible. THANKS!

As far as I know, the Carli kits are 4.5" of lift. If you are only looking for 2.5" Icon may be the way to go.

The carli kit is a 2.5 coilover that provides 4.5'' of lift which is more than what you're wanting.

For what its worth, the Kings above will only gain you some height, and make ride better. It will not give any extra wheel travel is what I've been told before...
