    upate info his reply to my question i sent him : I guess since there's not a question mark, that you have more of a comment than a question. To answer your comment, this particular kit has been in use for approximately four years without a single complaint or problem. One repeat buyer had a customer who totaled their truck. According to the buyer, in this accident, the body and bed stayed in parameter range. The hardware in this kit retains a higher tensil strength than any other kit I've researched. The listing states that no instructions are included and mechanical experience is needed. I can even say that I have had several ASE certified GM technicians who have installed this kit, approve of the kit and appreciate the simple installation. However, you have reminded me that there are skeptics out there and I will add a disclaimer to my listing shortly. Thanks for your comments.

    Hmm. the only thing that would keep me away is the NEG feedback, but seriously if he resales something, why is that anyones business. Ive bought stuff cheap jus to turn around and resale it for profit. Its business.

    well, not all people are as enlightened as we are.

    are you guys that blind.

    open pipe with no way of staying on center for body lift. the least the origanal guy could have done was weld washers in the ends to center them.

    but every one has there way of making the roads unsafe for all of us. :eek1:

    Exactly what I was looking at........the open pipe ends. :eek1: :eek1: :eek1:

    I opened up that link and read the price, feedback, etc. and then I saw the open ends on each "block" and thought WTF?!?!?!?! :eek1: :angry1:

    Its people that make and sell stuff like this that gets the body lifts banned and outlawed by the congressmen and lawmakers. :mad:

    school me a bit. Why are front blocks so dangerous? (serious question for academic purposes, not defending them or asking for a debate)

    Does the act of steering put some lateral stresses on the blocks that could cause them to tumble or something like that?

    They can spit out anytime under load or not, cornering or not, and if such event were to happen, you would have absolutely NO control over the front while steering.

    If the rear blocks were to spit out, at least you could still steer the rig and come to a stop. Unlike the front, you would have no control over where the truck will go while coming to a stop. You could be going right into head-on traffic at any amount of speed and not be able to do a damn thing about steering it.

    I've seen a truck here in town with a homemade body lift that was accomplished by using bricks for the lift. Yep, you read that right.......bricks.

    just sent to the origanal seller and currently still selling.

    (i just wanted to know why you are even thinking of selling such a totaly unsafe body lift product. there is reasons thay make them like thay do.

    someone could get hurt or killed when your product lets the body shift around on the frame and causes the vehicle to get in a acident.

    at best you should have off road only and major leagel disclamers in there.

    please dont give the good correct 4x4 sport loving guys any more bad wrap than we currently have. )


    will see what i get back. :rolleyes:
