    $300!!?? That's horse shit. I got my 35lb sytem with remotes and everything for $130 from AIM BUT the only problem was, they sent me a bad relay and I had to pick one up from radio shack ($5).

    I believe it, $300 for 2 doors and the remotes is about right.

    I paid $160 for one 50lb. actuator, the door popper, and relay. Thats ONE door, no remotes included.

    I believe it too, I just don't believe somene would pay that kind of money. The $130 was for BOTH doors. I know AIM sucks at customer service and are just a pain to deal with, but that's really cheap!
    Right now they have a 38lb kit (2 door) for $119.

    Hay LOW! can you put a tech thing on your site the tells haw to install shaved doors or have you already planed on doing so? I would like to know what work is involved in that b/c I think I might takle that b4 I paint my Blazer but I have no knowhow or experience on that subject ither. How easy is it? I'm just afraid if I jump in it with out a clue I will never be able to shut my doors again.

    I chose 50 lbs for my driver door, considering I open it at least 20 times a day. I figure I can get away with using a 35 on the passenger side since its gets used much less.

    I open my door with the 35lb solenoid all the time and have never had a problem (knocks on wood)

    i would rather go with 50 because 35 is to weak to open it everday. atuoloc is the best and will never break..guarenteed.
