    I lost track thousands of dollars ago.
    BAMF has become one of the newest ORI distributors if your doing a SAS or have a jeep or buggy then ORI-Struts are for you :D
    I run these struts on my rig and they are awesome! The 1st few 2nd Gen Tacoma IFS sets will be installed soon we are testing fitment on 1st Gens as well.

    Specifications:
    Dual pressurized chamber design for unmatched body roll stability in fast turns, and on off-camber side hills. Can be set to mid-stroke ride height and still control body roll, and not push off. Most users dump the sway bar.
    With ORI’s internal features, most users also dump the external bump stops and limit straps.

    3-stage velocity-sensitive compression damping Soft ride changes to firm compression damping as piston shaft speed increases.Conventional air shocks are typically set to low ride height to prevent push-off, but bottom quickly over bumps as a result. ORIs set at mid-stroke, will both suck up the bumps, and will drop out quickly over the whoops. No trade-offs in performance.Coil-Overs are set close to full extension to help reduce body roll. ORIs set at mid-stroke, are ready to react, whether to compress when hitting a bump, or to drop out in an instant over a rut, maintaining a more level, comfortable ride at speed.

    Tunable anywhere from firm ride to loose articulation by simply adjusting nitrogen gas pressures.

    Higher load capacity than conventional air shocks. Nitrogen gas charge over 2” piston can support up to 1900 lbs/strut.
    Compact, simple installation fits tight spaces, and replaces a lot of unnecessary hardware.

    Velocity-sensitive, 7-position externally-adjustable rebound damping
    Internal hydraulic bump stop on compression stroke
    Hydraulic end-of-stroke cushioning at full extension
    Cooling fins dissipate heat

    Lightweight construction
    Billet 6061 aluminum, stainless and high-strength carbon steel
    Hard chrome steel cylinder and tough 1 ¾” piston shaft
    Teflon-lined spherical bearings for 1/2” & 5/8” mounting bolts
    High pressure 5000 psi seals for extreme off-road abuse
    Corrosion resistant anodize outer coating

    ORI Struts do not Unload, or Push Off
    Piston shafts can be set to extend to a park position, then wheel and axle weight can still pull the struts to full extension.

    So this is a gas spring and hydraulic damper in one? What is the effective spring rate?

    The spring rate depends on the gas pressure in the lower chamber.

    im assuming you would have to measure for the oris the same way you do for a coil over?

    Are you building a top plate for them? I can kinda see the 8" working if there's a really low profile top plate.
    Anyway...subbing just to see!

    Yes I am and the 8's will fit just fine the suspension will have to be strapped. Just from the measurements I took these will provide more travel then any mid travel set up out. With the CV joint being the limiting factor.

    You were too slow :eek: and I'm going to try my hardest to make them a direct bolt on. It's the limit straps that will be tricky.

    Lol, yeah, any idea of cost? I'm just a week or so out before pulling the trigger on front suspension. Uca's already found and purchased. And how would these handle winch, dual battery, abd heavy bumper? I was planning on the 14" 700# spring from icon so I'd need it to outperform that. Just so you know what i'm workin towards :)

    I'm going to try and keep it under $1200.00 a set. And they can handle 1900lbs per corner so unless your front end is 3800lbs I think you will be good :D Just note ORI's have a long wait time if there is a lot of interest I'll stock them in the future but the first few orders will have at least a 8 week wait time.

    dam, 1200 is a pretty good deal for something that seems to be a one shock does everything set up.

    and these clear the cvs alright too?

    Yes they are thinner then CO's at 3.25" there is plenty of room for the CV's and you guys wont be hitting them like some do on coils at full droop due to them being thinner.
