Have you heard of these guys at BTF?

http://www.btf-fab.com/
I wondered over to DR.com and came across a thread that says these guys are gonna be coming out with a LT kit.
I'm not a fan of the site as the only contact info is a phone number. I understand if it's two guys and it's just starting out as company but I'd like to see some finished products.

I'm also interested to see what their finished product for a LT kit and a final cost.

So if anyone out there has bought stuff or knows someone who bought stuff post up. Im gonna keep looking of DR.

Crap! Mod, can you just move this into the suspension section and not the suspension classifieds?

They have made a LT kit for a while, even 4wd but they haven't advertised it yet because of cv problems I think, there is nothing but good things said about them on DR, i would phone them and ask

Adrian and Dan, thanks. I was hoping I didn't have to call long distance.

Thanks. No need to call. I was also curious of other products as well. It's unfortunate that their website is so limited.

Edit: I just clicked that link and saw there is two comps with the initials BTF.

I'm making it clear I DONT want info about BLUE TORCH FAB and I don't want there to be confusion.

Nothing against them, I just heard this smaller company has a good rep and wanted info.

Yeah that sucks. There is a good market out here though so word of mouth is a good form of advertisement.
