Coilover Conversion???

Looking for a coilover conversion for an 01 4x4. Ive looked up the ORW conversion but that one is not made any more, does anyone know where you could find one? Is anyone selling one? Does anyone know where you could find a bracket for that? Thanks guys!

All coilover conversions at this point are custom built, if you have the fab skills it's not a horrible project to undertake.

I've seen the brackets for sale here, but they were sold, most people who have them are probably going to keep them

There is a guy currently trying to work out the final details. Here: https://www.ranger-forums.com/suspension-tech-36/coilover-brackets-me00stepside-official-thread-119089/

Other than that prospect you will have to have your own made at this point.

Ya thats kind of what I figured. Ill keep my eyes open on the classifieds for anything. According to that other thread ORW is working on a new kit they are comin out with though, that would be nice cause it seems like a lot of people are interested

I haven't heard anything about ORW coming back out with them, but it's a possibility. Individuals have been taking them on one set at a time. The only indication I've seen of anyone making sets to sell is in the thread I linked. Personally, I'd never mass produce something this critical as an individual. There's way too much liability involved.

Im not sure about that but I was thinking about giving them a call. And hey if that guy wants to do it I'm all for it haha, but I wouldn't go through that trouble either... I just hope it actually happens and is a reasonable price.
