Do yourself a favor and drink cheep beer for a few weeks to save up the extra $448. You will be thankful many times over that you went with Icon.

I have the 4.5" Rough Country lift and it is very well made and I tow a trailer with mine. The shocks arent the best though, they are the same frilly junk that Fabtech, Skyjacker etc. uses (all made by same company, different sticker)

The RC kit is a great value and you will be pleased with it especially after upgrading to the Bilsteins.

With a 4 - 4.5" lift you most likely will not need a drop pitman arm, that is why most kits do not come with them.

We sell the Icon, which would definitely be my choice between the two.


This is for the 2001 listed in your sig?
