    Just to let all our valued customers know. Due to personal reasons we closed Missouri Offroad Outfitters today. I appreciate all the support we have had over the last four years. Of all that I will miss I will miss just talking trucks on the phone to customers and those who just wanted advise. I will be around on this page in case anyone needs anything. Thanks again to all!

    Sorry to hear that Steve. I was even thinking of ordering one of your engine cross members for my K5 to save building it myself. I hope you get things worked out soon. MOO had some sweet stuff at great prices, you will be missed.

    Good luck...

    Once I get a chance to breath, I will post up our remaining inventory at a significantly reduced price just to keep from moving it to storage.

    So sorry to hear that Steve.:frown1: Hope you and yours are OK.

    Maybe someday you could fab stuff on a limited basis or on spec? I think there's one or two things of yours that aren't on my truck...

    Steve my prayers are with you. I know the joys and heartache of owning your own business and for personal reasons here mine is also forsale. Seems like I will never be able to make "anywhere near" the money working for myself as I would putting one or two of my college degrees to work. Money isn't everything but the stress of your own business and the lack of funding has taken it's toll on me.

    WOW, what a surprise! :( I'm really sorry to hear this Steve. I hope all is well with you and your family. I'm glad you'll still be hanging around here though.

    I'll PM or e-mail you about some of the pics you had up on your site. I would like to save some of the Blazer pics on a CD or something. Take care!

    Very sorry to hear you had to close the shop. I hope that whatever the set-back is, that you are able to overcome it, and re-open in the future.

    Hi Steve, Sorry to hear the bad news. Could you put me inline for a rear axle truss for a 14 bolt rear with the upper cross member to mount the shocks to. Thanks
