    OK, so its not quite the end of the year but close enough. Overall 2006 went well. A bit too fast for my tastes but well none the less.

    Thanks to you all! The best bunch of friends and customers I could ever hope for!

    Another incredibly busy and successful year here at DIY4X.

    Quite a bit of new products were added to the webpage and more products I simply didn't have time to add, hopefully early in '07. There are 10 new products on the drawing board right now scheduled for release in January! '07 is gona be busy!

    One product I do want to touch on, The competition engine mounts. Jekbrown gets the credit for bringing these to my attention. I never would have imagined they'd take off like they have. Thanks Jek!

    I want to say Thank you to Terry for all the late hours. Thanks to Brett for the long weekends and a special thank you to Tracy for putting up with the long hours, long weekends, injuries, crisis situations and everything else.:haha:
    Thanks to Mick and Jim, my two part timers for all they do!

    Thank you to our vendors. Especially our steel and hardware vendors.

    Some new equipment was added some old equipment was broken. HA, such is the fab business!

    Events, well, we just didn't make it to very many events this year. Couple local ones. Missed Blazer Bash, hopefully next year. Spent a couple days trying to finish things up for BB06 and ended up throwing the towel in the day before due to steering issues. Still have yet to resolve this :doah:.

    Most of all and the point of this thread is to thank my customers. From all of us here at DIY4X, its you that makes it go! I can't say enough to this end or emphasize it adequately.

    End of another year and our agenda has remained the same, Quality parts and top notch customer service.

    2007 here we come and I can't wait to show you whats up next!

    Thank you Kert. You always find something else for me to spend all my hard earned money on, and i dont second guess will it hold up! Always more than whats needed and always greatest customer support anyone could ask for.

    Keep it up!

    Rock on Kert, glad things are goin' well for you/DIY. Didn't expect to get much in the way of "props" for the whole engine mount thing, so that was really cool. :thumb: :grin:

    Now all we need is a shackle flip on my truggy and I'll be set. :grin:

    I'll be ordering more stuff from ya in '07 I'm sure. Next thing will probably be beadlocks. I was gonna go with bigger rims, maybe aluminum ones + stauns... but now that a set of 44x15 TSLs are 'in my sights', it looks like I'll just go with traditional DIY-style locks on my steel Eaton rims. They are pretty damn good rims... why change?

    I'll be in touch. :grin:
