    I just wanted to let everyone know about the 14 bolt spring perches that I just received from Rockjunkies. There an awesome set of perches. the factory type could not possibly be as strong. There solid steel and fit like a glove on the axle houseing. I was going to take the 2 1/2" square tubeing route untill I came across a post on perches and found out about these. And the price, $40.00 for the set. Theres no way a machine shop over here in Hawaii could make them for that price. I would send the pictures that he sent me but I don't know how. He's a very nice person, willing to answer any questions that you have. Thanks ColoradoK5 and all It's members for all your very valuable information that you guys share! Ed

    <font color="green"> Yep, his perches are sweet, I have them on my 14 bolt too. The price went down though, I paid $55 shipped. /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif Still well worth it at $55 though. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Rockjunkies told me he usualy sold them for $55.00 with shipping but I had to pay more $24.35 for shipping because of were I live (Hawaii), Still very much worth it! Also its 1/4" higher then the stock perches on the 14 bolt.
