ICON RAM 2500/3500 Coilover Conversion Systems

Friday, February 14th, 2014

ICON Ram 3500 with coilovers 220x132 ICON RAM 2500/3500 Coilover Conversion SystemsThe 2003-2013 RAM 2500 / 3500 chassis is a solid foundation that makes for a competent heavy-duty work truck or a tough weekend warrior that’s able to take some serious off-road abuse. While these heavy-duty RAM trucks perform quite well off the lot, ICON Vehicle Dynamics engineers have spent a significant amount of time at the drawing board developing suspension systems to extract higher levels of performance. ICON’s new 3-5” Coilover Conversion Systems address the issue of a lack of adjustment in OEM components that may force RAM owners to set up their trucks for one situation or another. For example, maximum wheel travel and comfort may be experienced at a particular ride height, but when a winch setup or a snow plow is outfitted to the truck the front end is susceptible to a loss in height or ride quality. With the features of the ICON Coilover Conversion System, RAM owners can now make a simple change to the coil adjuster to acquire the look and performance they desire without adding parts or sacrificing ride quality.

The RAM Coilover Conversion System has been tested and tuned to offer comfort, stability, and drivability over a wide range of terrains. 2.5” remote reservoir coilover shocks provide exceptional ride characteristics while tubular steel or billet aluminum link arms add strength and decrease bushing bind. ICON offers several staged systems that include upgraded components and additional features along with all parts required for a straightforward install. ICON’s unique CDC (Compression Damping Control) Valve can be incorporated into the RAM Coilover Conversion System for the ultimate in adjustability and user-defined tuning.

ARB Universal Differential Breather Kit

Friday, February 14th, 2014

ARB Diff Breather 220x151 ARB Universal Differential Breather KitA differential / axle breather serves the important purpose on a 4WD vehicle of venting the air pressure in drivetrain
assemblies such as the differentials, transmission and transfer case. Under normal operations, these assemblies heat up and the air inside expands, increasing the pressure and thus the need to be vented to atmosphere is created. When the drivetrain assembly cools down the air inside contracts and creates a vacuum. Read More→
