I agree on the leafs not being addresses this is another thing I've been trying to gather info on before I buy my kit.

I think we're in the same predicament here
yeah but is it just and add on and you have to just not use the coils and the socks and just eat that cost or can you substitute them in?

Icon if it will do on and off road. Carli for offroad, the pintops are a great option and work really good, not as good as coilover, but only a minuscule difference to 99% of drivers. The pintops IMO end up being a really durable option, with next to no chance of failing, and leaving you stranded. I ran the M/T Classic Lock 2, they exceeded my every expectation, pounded them often, nice and true new, and same after MUCH abuse. The anodized rings are cool but spendy to swap(for color), I painted mine with no probs, and they looked great. Some may feel they are old school, but I like wheels, never tired of these, loved them the day they went on, loved them when sold(miss em). Super strong, and ability to change the look whenever is hard to beat. Best other upgrade was good driveshaft, Tom Woods made mine, and it was perfect, so smooth. They spent a ton of time getting me what I needed, lots of measuring and angles to get travel and angles perfect. Carli rear leaves shine off road, I would use bags for hauling if needed, but IMO that is a trade-off that is unavoidable for great off-road performance, you would not be disappointed in any way other than the aforementioned loss in hauling/towing capacity, no comparison off-road.

I like my icon coilovers fixing to add a set of piggy back shocks on all 4 corners and it should be ready to handle anything from grocery shopping to desert racing

Pretty sure there should just be an exception made to that rule.
