Icon Vs. Pro Comp

Hello,

I know everyone has some great opinions, so I hope to hear them....

I have a 2011 F-350 with a Diesel, 16.5 Warn and Ranch Hand Bumper. I'm considering moving up to 37's, from 35's, but want to make sure I lift it correctly the first time. I want to improve my trucks performance, not hurt it, so I appreciate your comments.

A few facts-
- I tow a 15,000 trailer a couple times a year
- I tow a 3,500 trailer 10 times a year
- I drive mtn roads 50% of my miles, but live 2,500 feet above town and enjoy driving the mountain roads hard.
- looking for tire suggestions as wells.



Thanks.

Greg

I have I-Con progressive coils up front along with Rancho 9000XL shocks along with a rear spring pack mod for the overload leaf. Which consists of a 3/8 plate on top of overload leaf to give 2-1/2 more suspension travel before overload leaf comes into the spring pack.
The ride is hard to believe. Almost as good as my wife's Chevy Tahoe.

I-Con springs are highly acclaimed for a quality ride and the only spring I can compare them to was a Rough Country set. And they were terrible.

Good luck on it

If you're looking to move to 37" tires from a 35, you're going to need a 4.5" lift. Further, you're going to need to grab a wheel no more than 9" wide with 5" of backspacing. That will allow clearance of the tires with a properly engineered kit. We're all about performance and doing things with the trucks previously thought to be impossible. For on-road, a Back Country or Pintop Kit in the 4.5" height would suit you well. Any questions, feel free to reply or PM me.

Here's an example of our R&D process:
