KP Components "The rumor is true"

Hello all,
By now you guys have probably heard the rumor that we were coming out with a bolt on 4-link and Cantilever rear system for the Ranger. Well we were so happy with the way the system turned out that we developed a bolt on front system also. I'm going to try to add a few pics of the prototype truck to my gallery. Bare with me, every site is just a little bit different with picture posting so It might take me a few tries to get it.
Now keep in mind that we have been driving this truck for testing so the kit is a little dirty. Also we have not finished our tranny X-member yet so it is laying on the stock one right now. The rear utilizes our tried and true design with the exception of an upper triangulated wishbone system that eliminates the need for a panhard bar. The kit will include the fuel tank X-member which raises the tank 3/4 of an inch in the rear. If you try hard, you can still make it rub but at least you won't smash the hell out of it just layin it out. It's the best we could do without cutting up your bed.
The front system consists of new radius arms and bolt on radius arm brackets. The upper bag mounts also bolt on and incorporate the shock relocator. This system will work with either the stock beams or Dream Beams. With Dream Beams, it will lay out on 18's. I know I know, but to lay it out on 20's you would have to cut away too much of the engine mount X-member for our taste. It works great with 255C or Slam RS 62 bags, but because DJM doesn't put steering stops on their arms, you may want to yourself so you don't rub through your bags with the tire.
I have trouble finding time to get to every forum on a regular basis, so if you have questions, our toll free number is the best way to get answers. Let me answer your first two questions before you ask them. The rear will sell for $1170 with shocks but without bags. We're trying to get our production price down on the front kit so we will have a price after the first of the year.
That's all the info I have for you right now so have a great holiday.
