    I am new to the K5 scene but I am a 300Z guy who has been around... I was wondering if you guys ever did group buys? I can set some up if we get enough people... maybe some shakles... swaybay disconects... you name it and I'll try to set it up (if we got enough people... give me your ideas on what you wan't and I'll get it for a group price...

    There have been some group buys in the past on different stuff. I think this would be an excellent idea now with all the new menbers... w/ all the new people doing lifts maybe look into some opening mods... like a Hi-lift jack group buy or something... I'd peronally would like to see the SSR group buy [​IMG]

    Sounds cool.... I would want to do that someday with a soft top, some rear fender flares, tires, bumpers and a few other things like a new starter possibly since me headers are not liking it and a new better alt! I'm actually running out of stuff to buy on the thing since I am getting everything! Which is good... because the stuff remaining will cost a lot!

    How can I miss you if you won't go away? [​IMG]

    Hehe, what about gas!!!! Spending almost 2 bucks a gallon is gonna be the death of me. But seriously, high lift jack has always been on my wish list. If there was a group rate I'd have a good excuss to spend money[​IMG] !


    You call that dirty!?

    I personally think our site is big enough and we have enough power w/ our dollars to get some more discounts... not sure who Steve has in charge of it, but I mean a deal w/ a place like National Wheel and Tire or something would ROCK! Also I know keith has been giving members good deals on stuff from autoaccesory.com...

    Re: hi-lift group buy sounds good (no-text)

    I sent Steve a PM about 2 months ago about group buy's and he never got back to me. I saved 72 bucks on my tuffy box from off road toy store on a group buy!

    <font color=blue> I'd rather have a bottle in front of me, than a frontal lobotomy!

    Optima sounds interesting.

    If you could set up one for "all Interco products" I would buy a 38" TSL for spare.

    All this is pending the deal comes along when I have the $$$ mind you. Isn't that the way?

    Lift It, Lock It, LIVE IT!!!
