Just to clarify stock height is 8" limit strap and 10" strap for super lift in most cases right?

Also I was just wondering what kind of bump stop work the best. I have been looking at the posts and have seen a few here there

Limit strap lengths depend of your mounting location

I don't know if there is a best bumpstop, but gas charged bump stops will worth better than most

I just ordered 8" ones from poly performance. "No name" ones were $20 each. Plus their clevis kits to mount. Look in my build thread. There is a link here a page or two ago and a pic of them in my build thread.

Just talked to the shop. I should be picking the brackets up next week. I'll get them to the powdercoater and order the hardware. Stay tuned!

I'll take the last set of brackets. Do you mind if I get the payment info to you after this weekend? I am out of town right now.
Powder coated please.

OK guys, all from this run are spoken for, but you can start another list for the next run if you want. I have another project running (not for Rangers) next month, so I believe July or August would be when I could expect the next run to take place if the interest is there.

SteelDirigible - Powdercoated
RLong31 - Powdercoated
Brandon22685 - Powdercoated - paid
FFBill - Raw
Jatha05 - Raw - paid
bigmoon - Powdercoated - paid
moonliteshawn - Powdercoated - paid
tylerbird - Raw
ecrase2500 - Powdercoated - paid
Jared152 - Powdercoated


I'm picking up the brackets Monday, and dropping them off at the powdercoat shop. The hardware should be in before the brackets are done being coated, so I should start shipping these about the 27th or 28th.

Stay tuned!

Those who had done the swap, how long does it take to do the conversion?

I just realized yesterday that the limiting straps that came with my Superlift kit have their top mounting point on the shock tower right where one of the gussets is supposed to be welded.

Has anyone had luck re-using these straps with the coilovers?

I bought Superlift straps but I don't think I can make them work, I'm probably getting shorter ones

It didnt go as planned. rob and I (mostly him) spent like 8 hours. I need an alignment and to install the limit straps/bumpstops. It rides better though, I noticed it right away, no clunk clunk sounds

I think the powdercoat added to the thickness so fitting the shims was difficult. Rob grinded the larger ones down to make it fit.
I'm extremely gratefull for robs help.
I'll post pics later in my build thread.
