Ride Difference between Icon Stage 1 and Stage 2

I'm about to purchase an Icon 7" Kit and am wondering if it's really worth it to go from the 2.0 shocks to the 2.5 shocks. The truck is a street queen with minimal off road other than trail riding. Anyone have experience with both? I don't mind getting the 2.5's and would probably upgrade eventually for ride quality overall but right now I just need to get her up in the air to get the new tires/wheels on stat and saving an extra $600 helps that cause.

I would go 2.5". There smother and stronger. If you add 7" to the shaft of the shock theres more flex. The 2.5" have 7/8" NitroSteel Shafts. That only $150 more per wheel. If you upgrade later it going to cost much more than that.
The big thing that you said is its a street queen. That said the 2.5" shock looks great and with a 7" lift the 2.0" will look wimpy.
Some online dealers will let you upgrade parts. So you could get just 2.5" piggy backs for the front. And they look great. I always get someone at parking lots stoping me to ask about the shocks. As well as telling me how tuff my rig looks. Its a Ford we all know the rest.
