I build kit for different year trucks and different brands (ie. Toyotas, fords, chevy trucks) from full size to mid size trucks. I dont own every truck to "test out" my product. neither does camburg
, total choas, solo motorsports, SRD. I dont and cant so we build a kit prototype it on the truck cycle the suspension, check for any issues. Then it gets transfered to CAD for each part to be drawn in 3d. This makes water jetting and CNC bending easier. So there is no CAD prototyping here. Only on the truck. Then we build it and put it on a truck. Either mine or a customers. The customer is informed about the prototpye being done and they are fully aware what they are getting into. BUT the customer gets a killer deal on parts and no labor fees. So they are paying for a product that is at cost and i always throw in a bumper to sweetin the deal. On David's 5 lug with the lift spindle i was building the spindles to work with toal choas upper arms. I was trying to make a lift off of their suspension engineering. Making it safe and reliable and cost effective. You all want bad ass build parts but you dont want to pay for them. I get it but there is a lot that goes my kits and parts. I built 3 different sets of spindles for davids truck and it still didnt work. Im still working on them and i will continue to untill i get them right. David did spend a lot of his extra money driving down and parts. Problem 1 he lives 3 hours away. Not an easy fet. He did have a lot of tme into this process. What he and most of you dont understand is i spend 60 hours into these spindles to this point 5000 in material, CAD drawnings and changes, water jetting fees, bending fees, machining hubs and new bearings. So its just not a time or money issue for the customer it is for me too and my business. David backed out of the prototype design phase and i gave him his money back. Its ok. no big deal. Point being this is a process that will always be changing and evolving. Ive installed 3 98 5 lug tacoma long travel kits and im still changing little things to better my kits. I dont feel its perfect and it can always be better. Thats whoi am and how i do things. I cant say the same for other companies. I need guys like david who are willing to prototype kits and parts out for me. This kit has been prototyped and its ready for a customer to go put some miles on it. Who is ready ?
