I figured a poll like this could yield interesting results. So vote for your current setup. You can update this at any time when you make modifications or add more stuff.

Good point... however I realized if I add anything to the poll, it will reset the results to 0. Bummer.

Still hoping the Radflo's dont end up like the Icon's. Neither of the existing sets has been pushed hard repeatedly liike the Icon's were to find the failure point.

I guess its a risk that radflo is willing to take. If it fails and my truck wraps around a tree, I'll be waiting on a check from them.

Matt really did abuse his during tecore, which really eased my mind.
