How much ?

I call BS. I tried last year and so did two of my local Ranger friends. One even has the RCD and they wanted picture proof of why he or I would need a replacement of the bracketry. They don't sell out-right because they've gotta cover warranty claims on their discontinued kits. But I will watch with interest to see if this actually does pan out.

Scrambler: Each bracket is around $40 bucks. I cant remember exactly how much but it was about $85 shipped for the uppers and $90 shipped for the lowers.

FX4wannabe01: Do I need to snap a picture for you? why would i bull**** anyone about this? I didn't realize it was such a big deal that they sold them to me when they did, and I think something may have changed in the last year since you have tried because it was a no questions asked deal. I originally intended to purchase just the lowers and fab my own uppers so I just ordered the lower mounts. Then I decided it wasn't worth the work so i placed another order for the upper mounts and that wasn't a big deal for them either.

I'm just going by first-hand experience with talking with RCD on purchasing brackets outright and I described my experience and others on the site experienced the same thing. So sorry that I find it a little hard to believe they changed their policy or whatever. Congrats on being able to buy brackets outright from RCD. Maybe I should call and try again.

Im not sure they are producing them still so if you want a set you might want to hurry while they still have a stock of them. They told me they didnt have them on site that they were in a warehouse where they keep there obsolete parts. My sales rep was named paully if you try to talk with him he should get you fixed up with them.

I figured I would post up, I talked to Dixon Bros about coil over conversion brackets and said they are in the process of making them so that we can go coil over on our IFS trucks, because I want to ditch the t-bars and lift it.
