On another note he said he can custom fab the kit but he needs a rear drop bracket in hand to measure from. He said he's willing to throw in a few awesome PRG goodies for a loaner bracket. I told him I wish I knew a few weeks ago because ntrddragon just finished installing one and I'm sure he would've loved to have gone in on that before installing it.

I'll be honest, it's tempting to pull mine off to loan it out considering the compensation parts he's offering up, but it is a full day removal and another full day install that I'm rerally not sure I can make time for right now because I'm currently in the middle of expanding my attic storage areas.

If someone who finds one to buy is willing to loan out the parts to him, that would be a much better deal and I know the compensation would be worth its weight in gold.

Ok, so I just came up with an idea! So I am getting over $13k from my insurance company, deposited into my checking account. If they were to be sold at $1700 a pop, that must mean 200 of these should run around what? $1400? Holy crap nevermind. MAJOR brain fart... I just did the math. Even if we had numerous investors, my measily $13k would only buy 11. haha. Plus I wouldnt have an Armada... Dang, really? 200? I can understand a limited run, but 200? They have the blueprints, most of the products, etc... That sucks. Would be nice to get a petition going around.. I know we wouldnt get 200, but if we were to get 80-100 of them, then I'm sure they would be love it.

He would need to take it off, do his magic for a prototype/mold or whatever and get it back installed with some goodies. Greg is a great guy. Plenty of people have lended their entire truck to them for several days and for the same reasons. Greg knows what he is doing

Yeah, I bought a few stuff from him and called him a couple of times. The reason I can't take it off and leave my armada there is because its my daily driver and I live like 5-6 hours from him. :/ to bad this news comes a bit late I could off done it.

There are many possibilities for enticing the donor with even more incentives, to pull his brackets. In addition to goodies from Greg, what if 10 or 12 of us, kick in say $50 or maybe $100 dollars each, to give to the donor?
Pops, would you be able to pull yours, if we could contribute $500 or maybe $1,000 dollars for you and your Family. I know this seems like a strange and radical idea, but at least I am trying to help think of some possible solution. Who else would also be willing to contribute to the donor, for his time and hassles?

update: i got some good news for you guys well if everything goes well! I just spoke with Greg, turns out he is in Sacramento (not bakersfiled like i thought) which is 2 hours from where I will be. the plan right now is TENTATIVE but I will try to go up a day early on Friday and drop my Armada off to him on Friday night so he can have it for Saturday and Sunday so that way he can make a jig and test it.
