4 Link worth it?

If i was going to go between the Icon 4.5" or there 4-link is it worth the extra 1000 bucks or so. Pro's and Con's of both?

Do you want just one or the other or what? Cause the Icon 4-link won't work without lift. And in my opinion, yes it is worth the extra money, even if just for the fact that it does away with the stock ugly radius arms. But you could also go with the OUO adjustable link arms, which are very nice pieces. I'm going to add an Icon 4-link to my lift to help with wheel hop when sled pulling.

I say the extra 1000 bucks because I would be adding it to the icon 4.5"

Side note, I asked RCD about theres and Brad wrote back to me yesterday that they are not ready yet.. I remember you posting about that.

I'm going icon 4-link with my icon 3.5. I found a pretty decent deal on one.

I have spoke with RCD and I think I'll icon lift it for now and put there 4-link on alil bit down the road. There system isn't done yet, but I'm sure it'll be nice when they are done with it. Sled pulls in Dallas in 2 months... should be ready by then.
