yeah in most cases group buys are for getting a discount, but we're talking about buying a part that is extremely cheap compared to others like it on the market...not to mention that JD as a company lost alot of money on these things trying to keep the prices down...

i mean when you consider the benefits of having the trac bars and the expenses they can help prevent the pay for themselves, especially since they are under $100.


Don't get me wrong...i've done business with wayne before and i would much rather keep my business with him since he is an actual part of the community and gives back to the ranger community, but he was unsure of his cost and production timeframe...

*update*

spoke to Tom again. JD has a "production meeting" in 2 days. Tom assured me that with the information I've given him, that he is going to bring it up during the meeting and make sure that the company is aware of a possible standing order for well over 1,000 dollars.

I should be getting a call back from him by the end of the week!


if he hasn't called me by friday i'm gonna call him back..

Rob, please make note that I will require the 5305, not the 5304 I originally put down, if it affects anything when you tell James Duff. If not then no worries.
