I agree. I sent them 2 messages way back when this thread was posted. Guess what ? No response. This right here would steer me away.

Let us know how it is once you get it. Pics of packaging, instruction, and parts, as well as when you're done.

Spinlock, I'm sure there was some point in time where that was said about most companies branching out to new markets. All it could take is one good review.

dawhitesJKU i talked to a local jeeper who has em. it was a quick conversation since he parked next to me when i was about to leave. He had the icon 3 lift and all he said that it rides "amazing" although he compared it to stock. He didn't thoroughly give me any other details, and i didn't ask because from the looks of his expensive and clean looking 18 chrome wheels, he doesn't use it as a jeep.

They are amazing on Toyotas. Digressive damping.

I was hoping for some reviews or firsthand experience with Icon on the JK. Too bad. Too much $$ for me to invest without some reviews.

kjeeper10 Holy expensive batman. I checked out their site and the components def look well built.
$600+ for a set of control arms

Definitely going with a '12; still looking for one at the moment. They're a rarity in eastern NC apparently. I'm also most likely going to go with the 2.5" AEV, unless I can talk Icon into giving me a discount for a full product review.

Mack207 I contacted icon and asked if they had any links to reviews. They didn't, which surprised me because they are a decent sized company who's products are well known in other vehicle markets. I got the generic "icon guarantees your satisfaction with the quality of this lift" response. They're only hurting themselves by not pushing a review of their product.

I'm looking to purchase a '11 or '12 JKUR within the next couple of weeks and would really like to run it, but of course I want to see some reviews first.

qnyla I also would like to find a review on the Icon 3" kit. I run their coilovers and suspension on my Toyota Tacoma, and they are top notch in quality. I would like to find out how good the handling and ride are on the JK.

MattK Sorry can't comment on the Jeep lift but I used to run their products on my Toyotas and they were quality products.

Icon Vehicle Dynamics Lift Kit

Is anyone here running an Icon Vehicle Dynamics 3" lift? Saw a setup on a JK at the Denver Auto Show tonight and it looks pretty nice. Looking for any opinions on it.
