Hi all. I'm planning on buying a Jackson DK2M guitar body for a project but I wouldn't really like to use the tremolo. Does anyone know if there are any hard tail substitutes that will fit or if it will matter if I use a cheap, blocked off licensed floyd?

why not one of those http://www.tremol-no.com/ ? you just adjust one thumb screw and it blocks or unblocks the trem

I've seen them before. I'm now just wondering if I should use a cheap floyd with that or not.

Take a piece of wood, then put it between the sustain block and the body. Call it a day. a cheap floyd will be fine as the knife edges will not be moving generally speaking, so it'll hold tuning just fine.

and another article http://pierreott.tripod.com/blocking.html

I do know about blocking trems. That's why I asked:

If it's a project why not just fill the trem route with wood and get a hardtail bridge?

That warrants a re-finish, a re-routing, and requires the purchase ,routing/drilling holes for, and full setup of a hardtail bridge. Seems like a bit more trouble than jamming some wood on either side of the sustain block and reducing the spring tension.
