Calling Carli/Icon experts...

Guys,

My first post and first Superduty since my 1999...been in cummins since 2006.

Have a 2012 KR cclb 4x4 and am going to run 295/65r20 Trail Grapplers on the stock 20's, have a gooseneck and pull several times a year about 12k lbs., don't want the rear any higher than it is now, have a 300lb front full replacement bumper and want truck to sit level. Don't really "wheel" but do run on ranch roads alot over uneven terrain and def have to use 4wd when it rains good. Don't want to buy more shock than I really need but am going to do this right the first time...want better ride/control over stock with a level stance...

Have narrowed it down to Carli and Icon, am leaning towards the 2.0 commuter with the 2.0 king shocks and a full leaf replacement in the rear, (if needed).

Please point me in the right direction based upon my criteria above and recommended vendors...Thanks for all the help


Brett

Full leafs in the rear are not needed. They actually drop your payload. Unless your going to get airbags too.

Don't want to fool with airbags...so just shocks in the rear?

6 leaf add a pack will suit you better overall. With that gooseneck and all.

And that add a pack comes with the commuter package, just gotta get f250 blocks instead of your f350 blocks. You can add new rear shocks, but you don't need to.

The fronts have to have new shocks since your lifting 2.5".

You can subtract the add-a-packs out, no problem. They do significantly decrease the harshness of the ride and wheel hop is nearly non-existent with them.
