    Truck: 2015 T4R SR5 4x4
    Use: Mostly daily driving.
    Goal: Trips to Baja, snow, and playing around in the hills of Northern California.
    Future orders: All Terrain tires, roof rack and light bar. Winch, compressor, Tepui RTT, Possibly front/rear shrockworks bumpers, take out 3rd row seats and modify to cargo storage.

    I am in the process of starting a build. Its going to take a few months going through stages (pay checks). First step is to order the suspension, then tires (probably keep the stock rims for now). I attached the Icon kit I put together. It will be at least one week until I order the suspension, so please any advise would be greatly appreciated.
    My decision to go with ICON is based on reviews, advise, and a friend who gets a good deal on anything ICON. I was debating between ICON and King.
    From what I read, the digressive characteristics of ICON can cause a stiffer feel at lower speeds, and really preforms at higher speeds. Thats the reason I chose the CDCV adjustable rear, so hopefully I can tune that. Anyone have this suspension? can it be done on the fly easily? Are the front remote reservoirs "overkill" for a 98% highway driver? They were only a few hundred bucks more, so I figured why not...
    Again those types of questions is why im posting before I pull the trigger.
    THANK YOU! Cant wait to get started!

    personally i dont believe the hype with the CDC's. Your shock/coilover go off a piston and valving, not a click dial that just changes how the fluid moves in and out of the resi. But thats one mans opinion. I wouldnt waste my money on the CDC/Adjustable options.

    But i have Icon reri coilovers and absolutely love them. They're definitely a little firmer in town but ride amazing once you get going. I too prefer the digressive valving.

    That is one hell of a setup right there.
