Default Replace Torsion Bars with Coilovers

I've got a 09 Ranger that I lifted with Superlift's 3-4" torsion bar lift. I got a good 3 1/2 " out of the lift, but I hate how low the bracketry hangs down - I've been caught up on it a couple times already. I'm looking into a (somewhat - under $2k) inexpensive alternative and I heard that coilover conversion is an option. Does anyone know anything about this as well as costs involved? I know that some older Rangers (and now the new Rangers) don't have Torsion bars at all - is it possible to get a hold of the suspension from one of these newer/older models and modify the coilovers to increase travel? I'm looking to keep the 33s I've got on but get 5-6 in" of suspension lift instead of the 3" superlift AND rid myself of the torsion bars. Thoughts?

the newer rangers still use torsion bars. 97 and earlier used a TTB suspension but they were not coilovers. Do some searching and reading on here about the kits and what all is needed. It is not that much stuff to change but your going to have to have some fabricating skills and make the brackets and such yourself. ORW doesn't sell the kit anymore but can help you if you contact Nick
