Yet another IFP vs Remote Resi thread (Elka suspension)

Searched and didn't see anything. Does anyone have experience with the Elka IFP (non resi) suspension? I see a few reviews of the remote reservoir stuff that looks good, I can't find anything on their non-remote options though.


Basically, my local shop is pushing the Elka stuff pretty hard and from what I've read it seems good. Prices are as follows:

Elka IFP 2.5 up front and 2.0 rear: $3450 CAD
Elka 2.5 Remote Reservoir (non-adjustable) all around: $4898.25 CAD
Elka 2.5 Remote Reservoir (adjustable) all around: 5339.25 CAD


All prices include taxes, install, alignment. Parts include shocks, Icon rear springs, and diff drop. I'm going for just a level rather than lift so I'd keep stock UCAs.


I've never run an aftermarket suspension at all so I don't really know what to expect. It seems like if I'm going to remotes I might as well get adjustable because the incremental cost isn't much, but I'm struggling to figure out if the extra couple grand is worth it - that buys a lot of tires and gas for further adventures! My primary goal with this kit is ride comfort, we don't do much real wheeling. Mostly fast runs (80-110 km/h) over potholed gravel roads and forestry trails to get to hiking and camping spots. My biggest complaint with the stock suspension that's on there is how easily the truck is unsettled over bumps and how rough it is on washboards.

Anyone have experience with any of these setups that can weigh in?
