    Hey guys,

    Is there anyone out there who would be interested in purchasing a set of shackle flip brackets for the 2nd gen tacomas? These kits would raise the rear end about 1/2" and would give you much better articulation when off-roading. These kits will also raise your rear shackles and tuck them up and out of the way to decrease the chances of hanging up on rocks, tree stumps, etc. If you are interested please PM me or Patrick (nofords08) and let us know what you think. If we can get enough people interested we will have all the brackets laser cut and professionally welded by my good friend who is an off-road fabricator. These will be high quality flip kits that I will personally warranty against any defects.

    Installation will also be available (AZ members) for an additional cost.

    I will post prices if there is enough interest. Should be roughly between $100-$150 per kit.

    Let's get a list going...if there's enough people I will setup a GB discount.

    Thanks

    Tim
    Patrick

    Doesn't look like there's very much interest for these. Maybe we will just be building them for ourselves Patrick.

    Neither of us do, we are waiting to see what the demand would be before we just do them ourselves, we more than likely will then we will do a full write up and have pics and az guys can see them in person

    That would be a better route than just posting the idea in theory. Potential buyers can't see what the quality is like.
