How? ORIs $1200, coilover $1100 plus: anti rock $500, limiting straps $50+, bumpstops $50-250. So actually the ORIs are cheaper.

Edited for either front or rear of the vehicle

I have noticed some times if I get rowdy on the pedal in a climb that my front wants to rotate faster than the rocks would dictate. But I would think since gas is compressible that it would act like a spring also. Maybe even more linear than a metal spring.
I'm still reading on them gunner, but their design is to not do that nearly as bad as a traditional spring, either coil or coilover does. ORI actually use two nitrogen chambers one on top and one on the bottom. Top on controls ride height, bottom controls ride. So kinda like a dual rate setup. I'm not sure about the dark magic part that keeps them from pushing off but I'm thinking its from the two chambers fighting against each other to try and keep your set amount of shaft showing.

Edit: rear suspension geometry can effect it too. Mainly the point in which if the upper and lower links would intersect if the were infinitely long. Further forward the less the jeep will try to pull the front up; anti squat. Too much and you just wheel hop.

I feel for me that they really fit the bill at least for what we do. I have a couple guys in The club that really love them. I've been out with them a number of times and really like the way they perform. No issues with them for a couple years now.
I had my eye on them for a while but after watching them perform on Craig's buggy I was amazed. They don't seem to push off at all when he's climbing big ledges. They're very stable as well. I can't wait to run them myself

The STs had some fading issues the STXs are doing really well. Everyone I've talked to hasn't noticed any unloading or push off with them. I've been reading a lot on them and haven't found any leaking or bleeding off issues with the STXs. To me the gain is simplicity, I don't need to valve shocks to get the best performance to extract every ounce out of them, no bumpstops needed, no sway bars, and no limiting straps. I've always felt coilovers have their place and I'm not building a full on race truck/jeep/buggy. ORIs really help bridge the gap between coilovers and coil/shock suspensions. Alot more user friendly, not that I'm scared to tune coilovers, I just ain't building a race jeep. Only real reason why I've been looking at ORIs is because when I stretch the front its alot easier to package thab a coil and shock.

Last time I putted up it I had H2 wheels on my Jeep, would be about the same width as you. It's a fun obstacle that asks for a good line to get through it

Lol that's what I was talking about, I kept catching my rear diff on that big rock that had worked it's way down from higher up. It does pretty well for a short arm kit, it climbs even better with the new tires it seems. Thanks for compliments. Means something coming from someone like you

JeepHerz So Russ broke his D60? He broke the D44 and then upgraded to the D60 right? And broke it on the Gatekeeper?
Gunner- we only made one prototype sub. and I need to keep it around for testing when we get the new one. Sorry!

Maybe we'll find the 4 door line via Russ by then it hasn't gone well for him the last 3 times. Lol.
