Right now I am torn between OW Radflo or Icon pirat

I can't speak for the Icon suspension but I can tell you from experience, both Overland Warehouse and Radflo are both TOP NOTCH on customer service. In all honesty, probably the best experiences I've ever had when it comes to aftermarket companies. To me, that in itself makes a huge difference on the companies I support...

Yeah I can agree that Overland Warehouse is on top of helping me out and figuring what will work best for my needs as well as all possible options. Right now the way it is looking I will be getting the 2.5" coilovers for sure and possibly the matching 2.5" rear shocks. I am wanting to get a true 3"-3.5" lift front and rear and most rear coils are only 2"-2.5" lift. Andries suggested looking at the Allpro 3.5" rear coils for my use or a special order 2.75" Overland coil. I really like the look of the stock rake. I did some measuring today and found out what the stock rake was and what the rake would be with the 2.75" rear coils and the 3.5" coils.

I measured from the center cap to the lip of the fenders. I have 265/70R17 tires and a 3/4" bodylift.

Front stock height is 19.5" and the rear is 21.75" so the Stock Rake is 2.25" on my 4Runner

Raising the front to 3" and rear 3.5" The rake would be 2.75" adding .5" of rake over stock rake

Raising the front 3" and the rear 2.75" the Rake would be 2" minusing .25" of rake over stock

Like i mentioned I really want to get as much lift as possible front & rear. I can always crank the coilovers up a tad if I don't like the extra rake but i think it will be fine with the longer coils.

Sorry for the novel rabbit your feed back is more then welcome

Not much price difference if I do the rear OW Radflo shocks and coilovers. The rear coils run the same at $179. for Allpro 3.5" coils and $175. for the OW 2.75 rear coils. It would be the same as the full 2.5" OW Radflo kit $1,825. I am thinking of just getting the front 2.5" coilovers for $1,020. and the Allpro 3.5" rear coils and using another rear shock for some savings. Icon makes the new 2.0 VS series rear shocks and they can custom make me an extended version for around $300. a set. The Raflo rears run around $700. for the shocks

so, with Radflo coilovers, Allpro rear coils and Icon extended rear shocks brings the total to around $1500. verse the full OW 2.5" kit $1825.

Well around $1500. is about my budget for this. Just can't decide on the rear coils for sure.

Just ordered the Overland Warehouse Radflo 2.5" coilovers, rear brake relocator bracket and 3" rear coils. Andries was great to work with and talk to n the phone. I also ordered Icon extended VS series 2.0 rear shocks. Very Happy
