These things normally ride until there are enough people ready to buy. Could take months.

I would contact them directly when you are ready to make a purchase though. Just to see what the difference is. 1800 is what the price is in the thread where it was created. 1800- 2500 is a BIG gap. 700 to be exact. If you have access to the raw materials, plate steel, I would look at possibly bartering with them on providing the material and they do the rest and see what kind of break you get.

2 months ago, a buddy had 3 huge sheets of 14 gauge and 4 x 16 gauge steel he wanted gone off his property. If I had storage area for them, I would have snagged them. Instead,. craigslist they went for $100 total. They were on his property when he bought the place.

If I had the space, and a welder - I would have tried to tackle this project myself. With all the pics posted, the design looks straight foreword and replicating it would be fairly trouble free. They worked out the kinks already, even the skid plate. *going to archive the thread just in case it is pulled for trade secrets*

Most of the money being charged is for the man hours labor.

its all good dude, its why i started a list for you, i seen you were struggling, might want to include on the first page that these tanks actually hold in excess of 40 galllons, add some pictures too, I am geniuely interested and will help you keep this thread clean and on topic, I have no problem waiting IMO, but id like to atleast know the lead times, if you have any questions regarding further set up let me know mang

But with a little ingenuity and taking the bed off the truck I could make the long ranger mounts it need and it wouldnt be that much more

ill sub for now, I think the price is a little steep, but I am always looking for a way to save a few hours in my life :P
Long ranger won't fit. Not from the hilux anyway. Frame rails are slightly narrower. Latest overland journal said that they unveiled at sema one for the tacoma, but when I called to double check the info, no one could verify it. If I had the cash I'd be all over this.

Yeah I haven't for d anything anywhere to coroborate that info. Which I was extremely bummed about. That's a great system too. I'm still crossing my fingers that they just forgot about me over there.
