So I contacted a local offroad shop (Iron Pig in Fredericksburg, VA) to inquire about an OME lift for my 04 Tacoma, thinking since my leaf springs are crap and Christmas time means I need a new gift, I decided to ask about any group buy possibilities. Here's what we discussed.
He said he would be interested in a group buy and would likely be able to do one on any number of products. They deal in Toytec, OME, ICON, Total Chaos, ARB, etc. If we were able to get a kit we could agree on, for example Toytec ultimate, and get a number of buyers, we would be able to give him our addresses and have the kit drop shipped from the warehouses for better shipping rates. No specific pricing yet due to shipping and uncertainty about specific kits. You can check their prices online at www.4x4connection.com.
10-15 buyers - 10 or 12% discount
16-20 buyers - 15% discount
20+ buyers - 20% discount
If this is of interest feel free to chime in. He also said to give his email address email@example.com. Feel free to email him. He said he is on ih8mud.com and expeditionportal forums and is a large East Coast supplier of ARB.
Dear moderators, if I have neglected to do something or done something incorrectly here I apologize, just had a whim to ask so wanted to say what I found out.
