Negotiations with my supplier of steering extensions has concluded with an agreement..
In order to offer a 3" body lift to the guys that want one now or in the future, i can offer a group buy of 6 kits @$450 shipped to fund
the purchase of extensions.

Edit: Once the 4th kit has sold i will ship within a week or so..

Send me a pm or email for faster reply for purchase details.

Current members:
i need your help to get this done soon, so if you know or see someone looking for a body lift please refer them to this group buy.
im not a big fan of group buys cus i wouldnt want to wait for something i purchase in advance, but i have no other options at this point..

thanks again

Mark, couldn't you make an investment and order six extensions at once from your supplier, and then sell them out individually in single kits instead of doing the group buy?

You have past knowledge of how well your 3" BL kits sell. I bet it wouldn't take you too long to sell off 6 kits. Just a suggestion. Its a lot easier to sell one BL at a time than get 6 people to sign up at the same time.

So.... these 6 body lifts could keep the 3" body lift around for an additional 34 kits?

I think a group buy to preserve the 3" body lift is an awesome idea! I know there is someone in the *last 3" sold* thread that's interested already. Lets get the list started! As well as Radflo did at almost double this cost I would think these to be an easy sell!

Sounds good, but... What happen if I have to buy a replacement part for the kit? It wont be discontinued?

Given that the steering extension is a solid piece of steel I think you'd be hard pressed to need to replace it. Maybe at some point you'd need a replacement bumper bracket if you ever got in a wreck, but I would assume any body shop repairing the vehicle could repair or rebuild the brackets.


I'm having trouble thinking of a scenario where you would need a replacement part somewhere down the road.

Supporting this group buy will secure product availability and its related parts for several years.
Now that i know my suppliers demands i can plan ahead..
His abrupt stoppage came at a bad financial time as i am heavily invested in a new aluminum foundry to better supply
suspension lifts..
Note:
If you are interested in the group buy, i will not ask for payment until we have atleast 4 buyers.

i have been supporting our platform and offroadtb members for several years and now i need your help to preserve a
product that was designed to meet your requirements..
i really dont want to see it die...

thanks again for your support!

Mall crawlers have body lifts too. Take high voltage as an example.

Higher percentage of lifted mall crawlers here than there by far.

Not everyone can or chooses to put their personal credit on the line for folks who are always looking for $150 lift kits. You or I could buy all six lift kits in the GB, and then when they're unobtanium, resell them for $600 each. But it's not our mission or hobby to make those kinds of investments.

Would that be 450 shipped to Canada? I'm still not ready to lift my truck but when the time came I was gonna do your 3in body and 3in suspension, can't do that if you're not making the body lift anymore. might have to buy the parts now.

I'm glad Mark is going down this path instead of the other "alternative." Time to pony up people.

One is on board so far.

We now have 2 buyers.

Canada is $540 shipped.the extra cost is for customs..
