nice... however, they look exactly like the stuff RCD put out years ago (lower bracket and all)... at least it's of higher quality... and as a warning for all of you wanting to do this to your stock trucks... you're gonna need 2.0 threaded body shocks along with 2.25 coils... make sure you run limit straps as well, since that upper arm is gonna hit the coils a lot sooner than before... I've done measurements myself on my truck and there isn't a whole lot of room for a c/o without sacrificing somewhere, which in this case would be down travel...

hah, snap! you're the guy I sold my lift to, hahaha... nice, man... thought your truck looked familiar... how's the kit holding up? oh, and you were supposed to mount the clevis for the limit strap on the frame, not the other way around :p only reason I recognized my kit on there was because of the bent bracket on the bottom, haha... still have the skid plate for that truck, if you want it... just pay shipping...

RCD doesn't have any sort of patent on those brackets?

doubt it... but even if they did, they can argue they're made of a different material... happens a lot in the offroad world, anyways...

nice to see the prototype kit is still going strong... extended half shafts and all... I'm sure you got what you paid for it and maybe then some... and time for you to upgrade that D30 to a D44 I'm starting the design of center mounted 4x4 for my ranger... see how it turns out...

The guy that bought the kit is here on the forum too, he may be interested in the skid plate. His s/n is BILTRITE BULLIES and the truck is an 06 FX4 LII. As for the extended CVs they're in Midland, TX now. They held up for me though!

I'll probably upgrade to a 44 someday, but rest assured I'll beat the hell out of it before it goes. I got the D30 already geared and built so thats why I went though route.

that bracket that is under the forward-most drop-down? that one that is bent up? well you would have to straighten it, since it mounts there... not sure if it connects to the rear drop bracket or it goes straight up under the radiator... I'll get a pic tomorrow of the skid with my phone... never actually mounted it on my truck...

I, like all of you guys hate when there is incorrect information being posted like this in a thread about a NEW product. We have already installed OUR kits on a couple of stock trucks and have had no issues. Next time I would appreciate this posted as a question for ORW or some of the other RF members to inform you or sent to me as a PM. I would also appreciate if we try and keep this thread going for those that are interested in the kit and are looking for information. Thanks for the unnecessary warning and if there is anything else feel free to PM me; we don't need to turn this tread into something other then quality information.
Thanks

So are you planning on telling everyone a total cost for an entire coilover kit + brackets, for stock suspension trucks then??

People have been asking and inquiring minds want to know..

now on a kit like this, i like to have my truck leveled out in the front, maybe even higher in the front, am i going to lose that height since id be getting rid of the torsion bars? and if so what would fix that, some coil spacers or something?

The coilovers are adjustable so you shouldn't lose any height at all.

Ride, handling, and probably cure sagging problems for longer than the torsion bars would last I'd imagine..

And more importantly for me...ground clearance! I can't wait to lose the torsion bars, they hang up on EVERYTHING.
