It's come down to either an Icon suspension or a dual battery setup and a Snomaster lp96 fridge.

For suspension I currently have Daystar spacers and for cooling my food/drinks I currently use an Ozark cooler. Thoughts?

This is for an '07 FJ.

What kind of trips are you doing most of the time....Rough terrain, single day....or...more mild terrain during multiple day trips?

The answer will depend on your type of adventuring. Do you take extended trips that require longer than 48hrs of cooling more than you take trips with more technical trails? If so, get the fridge. If not, get the suspension.

Suspension.

Man kind has existed for centuries without refrigeration. (My lakes and rivers are cold anyways) I want to delete the fridge and solar from my next camper build. I still prefer an ice filled cheap cooler, If I'm going for luxury.

I second suspension. Ozark is a good cooler. One battery starts the truck. Suspension will get you further in better comfort and increase your rigs capabilities.
