    Does anyone know what is going on at DC? I know they went bankrupt but I was just wondering if they are going o come out of it or sell the company. Does anyone know?

    I know somebody has to buy them out, cause the name Dick Cepek has been around forever! Like when Con-Fer went out of business, it was taken over by Off-Road Unlimited.

    I heard Mickey Thompson bought em, but that's just bulletin board hearsay, don't quote me on it.

    Mickey Thompson did buy them out, and is in the process of bringing parts back to the market. What parts, no one knows for sure. Hopefully it will be the lifts and tires. Hopefully they don't start making those good ol' Fun Countries like the sh%tty Mickey T's. [​IMG]

    M/T did buy Cepek (a buddy works for M/T). And hopefully they won't be marketing those junk Fun Country radials (made by Denman) as they bubble and disintegrate more often than wear out!!!
