What wheel/tire combo are you going with? You should not have any rubbing issues with 35's that some minor plastic trimming wont fix. The quality and ride of the Icon kits is second to none. You will absolutely love the way it rides and handles.

Thanks, I'm going with Toyo open country MT's 35x12.5R20 and BMF Novakane 20x9. I've only heard the best things about icon.

That was one of the set ups I had on my 09, I really liked the kit , no tire rub, and it road better then factory, and I still run icon springs now if that says anything about them. Go for it you will not be disappointed

What all is in the kit you're selling? When you say shipped, does the $1500 include the shipping? Just want to be sure and I am certainly in the market for a 2 to 4 inch lift.
