So is this dead in the water? "Asked for an interest?" What are we talking about here, a petition or down payment of sorts?

They are pretty slow. They wanted to see if we can gain enough interest. We did. They had some requests before as we all were sending request for a long time. Now they want to plan R&D and production. I have now idea how long it will take, but guessing its not going to be tomorrow. It may take a few month or several month. So far there is no feedback on the ETA, but at least we roll the ball and Bushwaker was actually looking to develop a set. Now we can only wait. I hope to get some info soon.

I was just thinking about this thread and how it's been awhile. Can we light some fire somehow?

Is there any other company capable of tackling these?

I almost hate to support a company with its head this far up its ass.

Guessing this died way back in 2010, any more development on other threads?

I spoke to a guy at my local accessory outfitter who works for bushwacker and basically he told me it wasn't going to happen. They did so many prototypes that just wouldn't work. They are local here and i did my best to get them to make them for us.

He said that most of them ended up on the side of the highway because they didn't hold.

My guess is he was just blowing smoke but regardless he told me it wasn't going to happen.
