Re: Coil conversion

I cant get the website to work so how muchare we talking? Ive seen the Black Diamond and Warn XCL kits but never could find prices on them either. I also heard that they are very hard to install.

Re: Coil conversion

If I remember right, the cost of the kit and to have it installed was around $6000-$7000. From reading up on what has to be done, it's definitely not a do it yourself project.

Re: Coil conversion

That seems a little high. The kit costs about $3300 or so, so I wouldn't imagine the install would be an additional $3000. That'd be INSANE!

Re: Coil conversion

Tomkin makes a real nice coil kit; but if you're going to drive it on the street at all, make your leafs articulate! the coil kits tend to make cj's into marshmellows! they work great off road,but leave much to desired in streetability...

yeah, the "magazine" that 4wheel parts puts out had a writeup on the install a few issues back, its at least a good week's worth of work. you have to install brackets for links on the axle and frame, torch off old stuff, etc. and then nothing ever fits perfectly so there is time alloted for "adjustments"

Re: Coil conversion

That was actually the estimated price from one of Warn's authorized installers of their black diamond kit. One of the reasons I "chose" not to get it.
