    Here is the deal they are going to be offering us

    Subject: Re: SoCal SuperTrucks Tacoma Packages...

    I'm cool with this arrangement. What I would like to do is offer a price of $2420 with FREE Shipping for the purchase of 1-4 kits. This price includes their all new 2.0 VS Series Rear Reservoir shocks (fully rebuildable) instead of the original sealed units that were manufactured for them by Edelbrock which we have on our site. If there is a quantity of 5-9 kits, I can do them for $2198.40 with FREE Shipping. If you can put together an order of 10 or more kits, I can do $2068.99 also w/ FREE Shipping. These shipping terms are good for the 48 U.S. states.

    Let me know if you think this sounds like a good arrangement and we can go from there!

    Thanks again,

    Black grille guard with mounted kc road lights, 31x9.5x15 AT on stock rims. My future mod list: new white front bumper, Fat Bobs 2.75 spacer lift with rear AAL, american racing Flat Black Rims, 32x11.5x15 BFG A/T, satoshi grille with road lights mounted behind it, 8000k HID for all lights, 1'' Body Lift, new window tint, blacked out headlights and taillights, custom hood scoop, weather tech floor liners, LED dash cluster replacement, Front bilstein shocks, 40 series flowmaster, paint all my badges black.
    God I wish I had that kind of money. Im for sure going to start saving.

    So is it possible to have this kit and have the readylift spacer on?

    Edit: Matt do they have photos of this installed on a five lug yet?

    Hmm not too sure about the rear setup I would jump on it if it was just the front setup. I just called and he said he would also work out a deal for just the front if you guys want it that way. I will post prices when he emails me back

    No you cannot run the spacer with this kit.

    This coilover will sit about the same height with a comfortable ride but if you want to add an extra 1" of lift you can crank it out all the way.

    So here is her response to just the front kit

    "Yes sir, how about $1700 for 1-4, $1552.50 for 5-9, and $1460.13 for 10+
    This will be for the ICON front coilovers and Total Chaos upper arms.
    We can add reservoirs to the coilovers for $250/set if anyone wants them!

    This is just a prelude to the group buy. When could you have the money by? I will keep it open if it is a reasonable time

    the only time limitation i discussed with her was a 15 day feeler period and then an extra 30 days on top of that - so an estimated period of 45 days closing on 12/2/2011.

    I'm trying to have the kit at my door by 12/15 so 12/2 is a pretty good closing date.

    currently trying to find a new job. If I pick one up here in the next week I MIGHT consider getting this. Will this give me any more height than the readylift?!?!?

    If you extend it all the way out yes it will. .75"-1" but it has 9" inches of travel. the readylift provides 2.75" of lift but its more like 2.5"

    check out nakedtaco's build thread - he has his mid travel cranked all the way out and has LT in the rear. also the fact that an UCA is included makes a huge difference!
