    These guys are the bomb. If you ever need any steel tabs, gussets or anything like that, check out their catalog online at...

    www.aa-mfg.com

    they have a ton of stuff 4x4 peeps can use and they offer quantity discounts too. Their prices rock, seat tabs (3/16" steel trapazoidal gizmos with a 1/2" hole) are like 20 cents each. Hard to beat that and its handy to have things like gussets laying around just in case you need them. I've ordered from them twice so far and they always seem to get stuff shipped out in a day or two, which considering I tend to buy stuff in small quantities and am not a "big time customer" is pretty cool. anyway, no real tech here... just happy with A&A as a supplier and thought I'd pass it along. :laugh:

    I have their rear disc brake brackets. Theirs are the weld-on type and suck big time. Too thin and cheap. I wouldn't even trust their brackets for all the hard core driving the members do here. :thinking:

    Here's a pic of an A&A bracket next to 45acp's bracket:
    The A&A bracket is only 1/4" thick where the 45acp bracket is 3/8" thick, obviously. :cool1:

    They are a great place for things like brackets and tabs. Prices are around the cost of steel! Dirt track guys have been buying from them for years. I heard about them from a relative who races sprint cars.
