There just wasn't enough people wanting them.

I enjoy doing custom stuff. I would like to have mine in the 4 to 5 inch lift range and on 32's or 33's with no body lift. The rear would fit pretty good at that height. I think I'd have to cut and rebuild the front lower cross member to get a 9" up front. But I'd like to move the front end forward any way. This is all musings right now, I'm trying to sell my house and move so I gotta wait a bit to get back on it. I finished off destroying my big jeep at KOH so the tracker is my only entertainment left for the year.
Gotcha, I mean the 9" stuff isn't really that expensive, especially since you wouldn't need anything to fancy, factory housing and 3rds would probably be bulletproof. Heck, a lot of those 6.xx gears are cheap since they are popular in circle track cars. 9" just has that stigma of being $$$ because you can spend a ton on it.
