    I have a project Blazer I should have on the road by mid-late March. I would be willing to beta test one for you :-) . I'm planning on giving it a lincoln locker anyway.

    Would be interested for sure. Planning on swapping in a 14bolt ff sometime in the future. Wanted to put a spool in it but didn't know anyone who made em. Was gonna go with a lincoln locker in the rear. So if you start making em I'm sold - J

    Got the testing situation handled, but thanks for the offer.. I just want to see if there's enough interest to proceed with making these things

    If I can get at least 20-25 people comitted to buying them I can have parts ready in 4-6 weeks. I just dont want to go and spend 1500.00 on tooling if I am not sure if I can sell enough to at least pay for some of that. I want one myself so I did all the design work already, but I was hoping not to sit on a bunch of parts and tooling costs.......PM
