    Can\'t say it enough times

    NO, not "I Love You" to your wife. I'm talking about how nice it is to order stuff from ORD. The last couple of weeks I've had problems locally with an upholstery shop, parts stores, etc. They are just stupid 24/7.
    I had to order something from ORD last week and I had just about forgotten what good service was like. Excellent tech support, everyone is nice, fast shipping, awesome products, etc. Thanks again. And hopefully Stephen can kick some Jeep ass this year at the TTC.
    I promise I don't work for them but here is my safety tip of the day for new K5'ers reading this: Buy an ORD steering box brace before you do anything else. It won't make your truck look pretty or go faster, but it sure is nice if you don't want your steering box to fall off of the frame someday. Too many folks put show and shine in front of beefing it up.

    So true! I'm gonna get one. This summer when I lift mine, I'm ordering one with the lift....maybe even sooner. My frame hasn't crack yet and I aim to keep it that way [​IMG]

    Glad to hear that muddin. I've even heard horror stories about frame cracks on trucks with stock tires and non-aggresive driving. I couldn't believe it when I bought mine 4 years ago...the entire truck was trashed bad, but the steering box and frame were perfect.

    Another big supporter right here for Stephen and crew..............just ordered my 4" Tuff Country kit (front and rear springs), stainless brake lines, 1" zero rate lift for the rear, etc. and Stephen was so helpful talking through all the areas of concern. Great guy...........hope he wins TTC.........

    Amen on the steering brace. After seeing the before and after results, I think it is a mandatory add-on. Think of the steering brace as a performance product. It doesn't make your truck look pretty, but you will enjoy the benefits of the brace EVERY TIME you drive your truck.

    Off Road Design is awesome!

    The few times I delt with them I was very impressed! I've been in and around the auto bizz for awhile and have to say, If eveyone conducted business like O.R.D. the world would truely be a better place. Bravo Stephen and crew!

    mudd'n, 73, blink.... Totally awsome mod... eases the mind a ton (well at least with me) and really does tighten things up. You won't be disappointed.

    Re: Can\'t say it enough times

    I just ordered my crossover steering parts from them. I spent so much time yakin like a high school girl, I forgot I was at work! I like the personal touch. I am NOT just a customer. I am a fellow wheeler. I only wish all places would treat you like that.

    your right. I don't understand the jeep thing!

    Yeah Stephen and the ORD crew are top notch. Ordered a few things from Stephen and ended ap talking to him for about 30 minutes each time. Real stand up guy. I'm VERY pleased with both the brace and the quick disconnects. Well worth the money.

    Yes, gotta have the brace!!! It truely sucks when your frame twists and tears at the steering box. [​IMG] (Don't ask) Anyways, fabbed a brace, (Didn't know about ORD at the time) a bit of welding and she's damn near bullet proof now. [​IMG]

    Why do people keep calling it a Bronco!!!!! [​IMG]
