@todt, still up for a set?

@hey you, this is the thread to keep an eye on.

Bump for anyone else who might be in need of a set. I'm sure prices have increased. Once we get three interested parties at the same time I'll call for a fresh quote.
 

hey you

I'm refreshing an older post to see if there is a current interest in purchasing a set. We need a minimum of 3 people to confirm purchasing a set. Fast Eddy will contact his vendor for current pricing. Metal/labor/shipping prices most likely have gone up since the last group purchase. Fast Eddy will let us know the current cost before placing the order with his vendor.

Pricing not as bad as I thought, $315 a set, +30 for countersinking (bargain, if you ask me, the bit alone is that much).

Send me a DM and I'll send you my email address for paypal friend payment. Once I have 3 payments, I'll get them in progress. I'll cover the 4th set myself and it will be available for the same pricing.

What is the distance from the top of the tub to the top of the plates where you guys are mounting them?
My 40 got a curved hack job for Jeep fender flares. I am looking for a solution and saw this rather than welding in Real Steel or other patches.

The top of the plates are roughly at the fender join. The bolts are just below. I can measure for you sometime today.

Edit: 5-5/8" below the top edge of the flat part of the fender, where it starts to bend inwards.

If your fenders are not showing light through to the inside of the tub, above the fender, these can be used to cover the hack job.

I asked for status Wednesday. They said they were still waiting for the steel and would let me know when it was going to be in. I'll update when I know more.

Going to Tahoe and the Nat'l Forest from tomorrow to next Thursday, so hopefully shipping Friday. (?)

PM sent about the 4th set.


4th set spoken for.

I'm going to get one of the good counter-sink bits to finish off the holes in mine. We can mail it around to complete the one hole in each piece that doesn't get drilled at the shop. It's in this thread somewhere, but as a reminder, one hole on each side doesn't get drilled so you can move the front fore/aft or down a little (and trim) depending on your needs.

I will be out looking for some solid packing material and calculating shipping today.
