who wants a body lift?

Hey forum members, I'm in the process of making a couple of prototype body lifts that I will hourly start to sell if it works out good for me and get plenty of interest.

They well be made of 6061 aluminum and will be very comparable to the M.O.R.E. Aluminum kits. I well offer 1" and 1.25" lifts including all hardware. Tentative price will be under $100.

Also would like to see if anyone has interest in 1" aluminum seat risers a well.

Other products on the horizon are diamond plate rocker guards and para cord grab handles.

Trial run of body lifts well hopefully be ready by next month.

Let me know who is interested!

Im very interested but no shops around me say they even install body lifts anymore and if they do they want at least 500. Sucks.

Body lifts are very simple to install with minimal knowledge of mechanics. If you can use a wrench and a floor jack, you'll be fine.

No pictures yet. I'm going to start working in them tonight. But as a reference the will look very similar to the m.o.r.e. Aluminum lift kit.

Can you make a MML too? If so I'd be interested in all three.

Body lift
Motor mount lift
Seat risers

Sounds like a good combo to me

Yup....I'd be in for all of those as well.

Let me know if you need any "Beta testers" let me know and I'll give a hand.

I'm in Lake Havasu City, AZ and we do lots of off roading around here!!

Well look who's here.

I'd be interested in the seat risers and the 1" B.L.

Thank you everyone for your interest. I got a handful of the pucks rough cut last night for the body lifts. Will do some more tonight. I'm ferrying a lit more feed back than I expected, which is a good thing. So please be patient as I fine tune the process. Again I will shoot for a limited trial run by the end of next month. Thanks again.

I'll contact everyone who expressed interest once I have time to sit at my computer for awhile.

Once you get pics and prices, I might be interested in 1.25" BL/MML for a 4.0L 3 spd auto.
