Man, at that price I would just think trading in for a Alpha would be the way to go at that cost.

They had one out when the Alpha's first came out... then cat pulled them back. Now they are back out.... Interesting though. I think it may be better off just buying an Alpha?

I agree. At near $3,000 I would rather go Alpha

With that kit you could put one on a 9000 M sled which never got the alpha rail.
Or if you damaged you dual rail suspension and/or track, might be worth it then.
And if your dual rail setup was still good, could probably sell it for half of the kit price.

you are getting very sleepy...


kind'a cool, but $2700 isn't peanuts and that doesn't include shocks for another $1K+. to this point I'd never looked at how they set up the drivers, neato!

so I learned something today. time for bed
