Icon Coilover/4 Link Install Complete

Here are some new pictures of the truck with the wheels and tires on.

Specs
Icon 4.5 Coilover Kit
Icon 4 Link
Icon Dual Steering Stablizers
OUO 6" traction blocks(bars not installed yet)

Interco SS-M16 37x13.50x22
ICCE OTR 22x10 4.5 Backspace

The truck rides really well, tires are smoother and quieter than I expected. The only thing I am unsure of is why the truck is so high in the front. Icon suggests a 5 inch block with the 4.5 kit to be perfectly level. I was worried this wouldnt be enough so I got a 6 inch block instead. It still could use a 7 or even 8 inch block I think.

Josh, I know you havent put too many miles on those M-16s yet, but they make them in a 40 and i was super interested in them. Keep us posted on how they perform.

Thanks for the pics, truck looks great.

I will for sure let you know. They only have about 40 miles on them right now. I have had Toyos, Nitto Mud, and Kumho Mud and I would compare these very close to the kumho as far as ride and noise. They are much quieter than the Nitto mud that I had before.

Here are a few more pictures. I think the ground in this group of pictures was more level. You will see the rake that the truck has....

i think those front coilovers will settle in a little bit and get you closer to level, but i definitely see what you are talking about

I really like the height of the truck so I might just get a taller block in the rear. I have a 6 inch now. Might step up to a 7 inch and leave the front alone.

Not set up for a booth right now. I am primarily using it to pull my Chevelle out there which will be in GFG wheels booth. The truck will probably be parked out in the offroad lot where all the other trucks were parked last year.
