    I'm told that Reallift has had some finacially diffculties, the details of which are irrelavant. I wondering if any has any interest in participating in a "crowdfunding" campaign to help Reallift return to the market?
    I have heard nothing but good about their product so let's see how much interest thier is and maybe we can help a American business get back on thier feet. Please refrain from discussion of the owner's personal life and also let's not discuss the merits of IFS vs SAS. Reallift's product is exclusively for IFS users.

    Thanks,

    Dave.

    P.S. I am in no way affiliated with Reallift in any fashion nor do I benefit in anyway from helping them other than see there product return to market and getting to purchase them.

    Not really interested in them. I just don't see it being good for anything other than looks. I see added stress points and wont it push the tbars at least 2 inches back? Just not how a tbar should be set up is my opinion.

    I like mine, And I know people still want them. But I think the reasons for the cessation of production/personal issues should be addressed before any money is given.

    There's always buzz around these types of thing's, until they come back, and people see the price tag, and balk. There's a reason they couldn't sell them before.

    With these trucks getting into the sub 5k category for the most part now, I just don't see the market for new, or new/old thing's for them. They are starting to fall into the restoration/hardcore build market, or the "I wanted a truck and this is the one my dad gave me/I could get fiananced for at the anyone's approved carlot/Pay cash" categories.

    The made them for newer trucks also and for Fords additionally. I never heard any problems with selling them, I heard they sold everyone they could make.

    Then why aren't they selling them now? Successful products don't get discontinued lol.

    ***Edit*** Successful products do get copied though, so why isn't someone else making them, if they really sell for a profit?

    At any rate, on the subject of paying money to a company for the privilege of paying money to a company for a product they failed at producing once already , I'm out.

    There were personal issues that had nothing to do with the business.

    This is so true. If they came back on the market right now only 1% of people who say they would buy them actually will. Its kind of a joke. I think its a stupid product but maybe that's just me.

    I know there is a small demand for them, but those people who want them, what are they willing to pay? I recall they were around 300 new? I mean, they get your torsion bars up away from logs and stumps and whatnot, but at this point, the people doing that, are doing SAS. And really, whoever bent a torsion bar like that anyway?

    If a guy really wanted a set, he could have a local machinist make him some for 300 bucks probably, and not crowd fund someone else's dream.

    Agreed, I have a friend who could machine those. I off-road my truck and honestly haven't had much issue with the bars, I used them as sliders once and it didn't bend them or anything. Are the relocators the only product they make?
