Icon 2.5", 2.5" Deavers, & 35" Toyos On My Rig

Turned out pretty well. I really like the stance of the truck now. It's 1" higher in the rear. I have it parked on a hill, so things may look a little off on my junky cell phone pictures.

I'm thinking I may need to go to a 37" tire 'cause these look a little small now. IMHO.

QUESTION - When the shop put the rear springs on, they didn't put the overload springs back on. Does this sound correct with the Deavers?

Idk if it's bc you took the steps off, but it lOoks higher than a 2.5" lift. It looks really good. After seeing your truck I'm considering running that set-up instead of looking into a 6" lift. If you don't mind can you PM me what that set-up cost you. Thanks

That's the front end kit. For the back I used Deavers instead of the 4" blocks. I bought everything from CT Performance who's on this forum.

Are the deavers softer? I want a smoother ride, and then want to suppliment them with airride setup. thoughts?

The ride is stiffer with the Deavers. I can't speak to adding air bags and supplimenting the ride. Makes sense though!
