Good Morning -

Due to a disappointing turnout, we have decided to discontinue the Group Buy offer for Trailblazer Fender Flares. We'd like to thank everyone that took the time to fill out our survey and offer us feedback on offroadtb.com, trailvoy.com and on our Facebook page. Without the vocal minority that demanded Fender Flares in the first place, we would of never come this far. Unfortunately the high costs of design, tooling and manufacturing were too high of barriers to overcome - compared to the low amount of interest we received, around 16% of what we needed to complete the Group Buy requirements.

So again, thank you for your interest in Bushwacker Fender Flares and we hope that we can earn your business in the future for another vehicle.

I'm impressed the process got going at all, but we ARE a small and now orphaned market. And the hard-core offroaders aren't going to spend real $$ on sacrificial trim pieces like these anyway. They'd only be ripped off by the trees and rocks.

Thanks for listening, Bushwacker, even if we weren't responding back in great volume.

Why theres no hope for this phony !!!

THIS WAS INEVITABLE AND IS A VERY VIVID & POOR BUSINESS MODEL AND USUALLY WORKS THUS-FAR: TELL SAID CUSTOMER (GROUP) THAT THEY WILL
R&D A CERTAIN PART FOR THEIR NEEDS AND OFFER IT AT A REASONABLE PRICE. BUT!!! THIS IS WHERE THEY GET YOU ..THEY WANT ACCUMULATE TO 250 CONSTITUENTS TO "PRE-ORDER" THIS PIECE AND AT A PRICE OF 349..0 THATS AROUND 87,000$ WITHOUT SHIPPING AND HANDLING... AND WITH THE SHIPPING COST OF 37,000$ ( PUTING IN BOX W SHIPPING STCKER -15 MINS. MAX.. AND FLAT RATE SHIPPING 25.00$ PER BOX).................
THATS A TOTAL OF 125,000$............. TO GET THIS PRODUCT TO YOUR DOOR IN SIX MONTHS... A QUARTER MILLION DOLLARS!!!!!!! NOW HAVING EXPLAINED THIS, WHO WANTS TO GIVE UP THAT KIND OF MONEY FOR A "CHANCE "......16% THAT HAD FAITH IN YOUR COMPANY ONLY TO BE DISAPPOINTED... DONT THINK I OR THAT 16% WILL BE RETURNING FOR YOUR ...
PS: GET A BETTER MODEL AND YOU MIGHT ACTUALLY SUCCEED!!!!!
