I have gotten some response from other sites. The idea is way out of their comfort zone. They react the way guys here would react if I suggested putting a LS7 engine in a Metro.

What I'm trying to do is get some vendors interested. One or two project trucks is all I'm trying to get. The aftermarket has to be hurting, too. They need something new to stimulate sales.

The GV actually is easier to mount on a 4x4 than a 4x2. They have mass-produced adapters. Because the 4x2 is so rare, they have to use a "divorced" mount, not only shortening the prop shaft but making another. The 4x2 kits costs about $1,600 more than the one for a 4x4.

Chopping the top is custom coachwork, best done by a pro. Beaucoup bucks!
