What a shame, those photos were pretty amazing. Still, I suspect he could have put anyone's conversion through the same roads, rivers, and trails. A lot of it boils down to how hard your willing to push, and more importantly, your skill level. Having said that, the Agile conversion is probably the best riding one out there, with massive suspension travel and a low ride height. My Advanced solid axle, leaf spring conversion has very limited travel and a harsh ride. I plan to convert to coil springs as soon as I sell my boat, but I haven't decided if I will go all out and go to a Twin Traction beam set up, or for less money, install one of MG's kits using my current axle. I have no doubt that either one will be more capable off road than I normally need. I'm leaning towards Agile, but I have yet to ride in one of MG's conversion.

Yes, the UJOR coil kit is the MG kit. The UJOR leaf kit is the original UJOR designed kit.

If you buy it from Ujoint you get their logo on the radius arm brackets. They make sure to add it when they recieve them from MG so they know who they sold their kits to.
