i would sell just one bolt of the kit if someone needed it...

i know what its like to just need certain things not the whole kit..

i felt like i was being raped when i bought my kit $400..WTF, should be able
to make one available for around $275.. depending on the material
costs.

The next hertal is to find a steering shaft boot a little longer..
anyone have one laying around i could buy and study ?

not so sound like an a$$ (you've prolly thought of this already..), but can you just take the one you got from BDS, take that basic design and just make the sleeve longer?

Good idea,, but BDS kits dont come with a boot extension...
Probably the only reason they stopped at 2"s for thier kit...
It was a real PITA to get the factory one to stretch enough
to go together and stay together..

i would never market something that would be a pain for the
installer..since i have done it so many times, i know a good
kit just by looking at the brackets..
If my name is on it,, it better be top notch & no hasles to install!

thanks you for the input..
much appreciated

hmm, that makes sense. how hard is the install? the install of the BDS suspension kit was easy, just wondering if its about the same difficulty.

I cant wait for your kit to come out. hopefully I will be able to get a kit. I think I will have internet again this trip back to Afghanistan next month, so it will be a while for the install when purchased.

The BDS body kit without adding another inch would have only
taken me about 5 hrs..
it was that extra 1" that was time consumeing for me...
took all of 10 hrs and a 24 pack..lol..

Just keep us updated and let us know how everything is going with this. I know this will be a big seller for you because you have a lot of buyers for the spacers.

Keep up the great work Mark

I will do my best to keep everyone informed..
But this will take a while to complete..
i worked on the spacers for almost a year before i felt comfortable
with offering it to the public..

It is nice to be able to give something back to a site and its
family type members that have been so much help to me in
the past year!!!!!

Thanks again my freinds!!
