markmc 2.5" lift

Well i have been contemplateing the idea of makeing and
selling a spacer kit of my own, since smaxx used my idea and
i have recieved no compensation.

The kit would consist of the front 2.5" (aluminum)spacers and hardware,
also the kit would include the blocks for the rear in whatever size you
want.

Would $120 + shipping for the kit be out of line? (Trailvoy members only)

I just wanted to get some feedback from everyone.

Yepper,,my design..
I made the mistake of sending samples to Larrys R&D dept. and
he ran with it..he even used my (aluminum) samples on his website..
On another note, he has gone behind my back to MY secondary tooling
maker to redesign the upper balljoint arm for an additional lift kit option.
so watch for that on his site in the next month or two..

But i dont get mad, i get even..haha..
i WILL get my hands on that new tool he is getting made one way
or another.
Thanks for the input, and sorry for venting..just a little frosted..

The kit i sent you is partly my design, the only change will be
the plastic spacers will be aluminum.Larry had extra plastic
spacers to get rid of before changeing over.
so go ahead and do the install, but thanks just the same!!!

Wow, I knew it was your design but kinda figured he had thrown you something here and there. That is BS. I'll hold my tongue though

I am behind you. Are there any changes /adjustments that you can make that would be an upgrade to what the smaxx has? In my little reading I have seen guys state that they just sit there, if that is true, can you improve upon that?
