6" Superlift guys

Im working with Icon Vehicle Dynamics to build a 6" front coilover to replace the strut and 4" SL spacer. I need the extended and collasped measurements from the top of the SL spacer to the bottom of the strut, not including the strut fork.

about 26.25" fully extended pulled out of the truck. almost 27" to the very bottom of the clevis mount plate - measured this past saturday. This is 6" with the Daystar 1" drop strut bolt mounting plate.

GF has my jeep today so I'll have to get you curb length later.

I too was interested in going this route, but I was considering using the same FOX shox that JBA uses.

I would be extremely interested in a set of these coilovers that they are setting up for you! Looking for a nicer ride through rough sand environments plus the ability to fine tune the height due to added weight.

I tried contacting them about this a couple months ago and never got a response to my email. I suppose I could have called them... but oh well. Any idea how much they were going to cost compared to the 0-3" set they have offered?

Honestly, theres a forum member dsjr2006 on here that has a set of ICON coilovers that were made for the stock WK. They dont have them on thier site but they did make them for a bit at least. He since sold his WK and is parting out. I believe he still has his coils. You could totally private message him for his measurements and just add 6" .

The custom length coilovers will run $1600 for the pair shipped anywhere in the continital US. The build time is 4-6 weeks. We can actually have them built however you would like, but we want to offer a standard +6" coilover.

$1600 is an estimated price, once we have the measurements at 100% the final sales price will be determined. As of right now the only other option is a $2500 JBA coilover, so $1600 doesn't really seem that bad.

We havent discussed an extended rear from Icon, right now we are offering the 12" travel Fox remote reservior rear shocks for the modified Superlift kit

Considering the "regular" size is around $1300 I don't have a big problem with $1600 shipped. I would go for these.

I assume they are rebuildable as well as slightly adjustable? I would probably run the Fox rear shocks like said above or perhaps some 5165 Bilsteins.

They will be adjustable similar to the stock replacement ones. They are also rebuildable.

Sounds good to me. Any idea when they would be available to order from IVD?
