I'm in the process of doing all the shipping labels now.
I will send out the tracking numbers tonight, and the packages will be dropped off at the PO tomorrow.

OK guys, stuff is getting labeled, and you should be seeing your tracking info come through to your emails. I got in touch with everyone who's address I didn't have, and everyone's packages will be going to the PO this afternoon on my way home from work.

I hope at least someone will post some pics of their install this round!


Still 2 raw and 2 powdercoat left!

We'll see how things go. This run is a little discouraging. Of 19 people who said they wanted them, 11 have paid, a couple have said they need to wait a bit for the money, and a bunch have completely stopped responding. I am still into this run for more than I have taken payements.

I usually email out the numbers individually, but this time I just putting the email addresses into the USPS system when I created the labels. It seems they don't send out an inital email, but you should recieve updates as the boxes transfer in the system. If there are no updates by tomorrow, I'll get all the tracking numbers out of my USPS account and send them out. I thought they would have sent out an email right away informing the recipient of their package.

well hey, if you still have a kit by then i'll buy one. I have no job, and no time for a project right now.
on a side note, if i'd said previously I was in, you can bet you'd have my money by now. I like to be reliable.

Ok so I have read all 48 pages of this and I read the madness/sadness thread but have not figured out an answer to my question. Everyone is talking about removing their t bars for the coil over, I get that. But can a coil sprung ranger like myself do the conversion? If so, my next question would be, can a coil sprung ranger do the coilover conversion with the fabtech 5.5 kit? Thanks guys. I appreciate all the info and work that has been done to make this possible

You can put coilovers on your truck but I'm not sure if this specific conversion would work. This is mainly for 4x4 and edge trucks with limited room, but you don't have cv axles so you can get bigger coilovers. And I don't know what the 5.5 kit consists of so I'm not very helpful. Sorry


I got my brackets today! Thanks Shawn!

i think camburg sells a coilover kit for coilsprung a arm trucks. as far as these brackets goes, they won't work because we have a different a arm and different shock tower which is what these brackets are made for... to fit in a torsion bar shock tower and on its a arm.

Glad to hear you guys are getting them (and of course, thrilled that you're very happy with them!)

UPDATE: two sets left in powdercoat only.
Potential deal pending on one of them.
