Another buyer from my website has replied.

Group buy participant list is at 3
1) Ralogsdon13
2) E Sitz
3) L Ridenour

Placed order for brackets to be fabricated and painted so everything should be ready at same time.
Bolts, 3x3 body lift blocks and other hardware is in stock.

When we get #4 i can put together a schedule with a target ship date.

Half way there! I don't know about the rest of you but I'm glad to think we can keep that lift available.

Now that i have agreement with machine shop and can plan ahead..
The 3" body lift can be available indefinitely.

Just had to act on purchase before he changed his mind...
The extensions ARE a pain to machine..
In the beginning Tmac (from tvoy) broke a lot of end mills machining the Double D 17mm female end..

This is wonderful news. I wanted to help so bad. The wife is having a back surgery coming up and the financial future is uncertain. Thank you for keeping this project alive. I would much rather give my money to Mark than Zone. Nothing against Zone personally but we all owe Mark a whole lot. Thanks all those that stepped up to help.

I couldn't agree more with everyone else. I greatly appreciate this opportunity to jump on board. All I have read on this forum was how amazing Mark's products are, and knowing I played a part in keeping his product available does feel pretty damn good.

Thank you again for such great support that will allow this product to be available to future offroaders!

Update:
The brackets have been moved from fabrication to powder coat painter.
The steering extensions have been ordered.
Bolts and other hardware are shelf items at local Fastenal store.

Please note: Restart of proses takes a little while, however i am pushing hard on my suppliers to get finished asap.

Update:
Just waiting on steering extensions from machine shop.
All other hardware is packaged and ready to ship.

Also, E Sitz is recovering from heart surgery and has not sent payment yet.
Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers.

This would be a good time for you to jump in..
