Hey Guys and Gals,
I called Bud Built (www.budbuilt.com) today to ask how he felt about a Group Buy and I got what I felt was a pretty positive response.
Here's what I got from our conversation:
-He's most likely willing to do a GB if one person handles all payment (I can probably handle that, i was thinking PayPal?)
-We can save about $100 each in shipping costs if they are all shipped to the same location. Obviously details for that would be hashed out later depending on number of interested buyers and their location. For example, if we get a lot of CA guys maybe one NorCal location and one SoCal location?
However, if we get enough buyers (>20) he said it would be no problem to ship directly to each one.
The bottom line is that he basically wants it to be as easy as possible on both ends, totally understandable. He's a super nice guy and his product, from what Ive seen/heard, is badass.
Prices/discount are yet to be known, but from what I got from Bud, he's willing to work with us.
So here's what I would like, if we could get a list going of people that want some Bud Built skids and are actually willing and able to fork out the dough (Tacoma, FJC, 4runners are all invited, so spread the word) I can go to him with some hard evidence, get prices, and hopefully we can make this happen!!
Disclaimer: Sorry for the long post but I wanted to make sure you guys get the whole story.
EDIT: To keep this organized please note your model and year and check out Budbuilt.com and specify what exact skid(s) you want in your reply.
I'll start it off:
1. Tacolution - 08 Tacoma, all 5 skids
