    get back to making tube doors.
    i like my set, so do about 99% of the people that see them. also offer some other styles.
    ORD seems to not want to make them and they are in high demand. make a style like the ORD ones for options.

    I like this idea...may take this and truck with it. However the reason we quit last time is lack of interest. Just seemed like the demand went way down.

    Tube doors for sure. Every site I post pic's of mine I get all sorts of people wanting a set.

    Pavementsucks.com especially.

    Bumpers are a real personal deal...hard to build them on spec cuz everyone has a different need or vision for thier truck.

    The Toybox sliders are a good one too.

    Shock hoops maybe?

    i think last time, it was a new product and the people that had the money jumped on them, then other people like me that wanted a set but were always broke were thinking they could get them later on. and then production quit, you had a very good product at a decent price. and i wish i could have got a set back then, maybe i can now :D

    Well I put an email out to my old building buddy, Micheal on making some of this stuff up. Sliders and tube doors would be a good start I think. If he's gung ho like I think he will be, production shall commence and I'll get my supplers's yellow star or whatever i need here.

    Thanks for the input.
