    Make a more structured and better sales strategy. 99% of the people from this forum won't buy nothing from somebody that has been a member for so little. Check some other threads about the same subject/topic. Show what you sell, offer introductory prices, you haven't sold a single light here so build some reputation. TW marketplace it's all about group buys. Good luck

    3" lift using Fox Shocks Coilover, Total Chaos UCA's. Running: Duratrac 285/70/17 Rear suspension just a 1" block for now. Will have custom rear springs no block. Fox w/ Resi.

    First like others have mentioned already. I myself will not buy from anyone I don't trust. I would start with building a relationship with those on this forum and build a website, registrar your business. At least least yourself with the BBB.

    There is no way I trust a guy just posting on here to sell any product with very few posts. You come across as a fly-by-night guy. You have have just started off on the wrong foot. If something happened to the lights if I did purchase from you, what guarantee do you give you are not going to disappear?

    Actions speak louder than works. I hope this works out for you. Good luck.

    we shouldn't have to PM you for these answers and this type of information. we need pictures of your product mounted on various trucks and vehicles as proof of your "450 light sales". night shots behind the lights as well as distance shots to see how far they hold light. we need your business name, where you're based out of, and maybe some more info on how and why you got started. t
    his is the internet. anyone can make anything up or make anything appear legit but far too often are members scammed. we look at things like post count, the types of photos you take, and the way you conduct your online business and take it all very seriously because scams and cheap products are not something we Tacoma owners are about.

    and as previously stated, there have been way too many LED light vendors that have popped up and obviously at least one ended in a scam. unless you are offering low prices, a very enticing group buy, a lifetime guarantee, or an extremely high quality, dust proof, water proof, all wiring included product then you are simply another vendor selling cheap Chinese products trying to take advantage of the new LED craze.

    if you can provide more business transparency, proof of quality, and evidence of sales then you will separate yourself from the hordes of cheap LEDs out there for sale. we enjoy vendors that take interest in our enthusiast community because it usually translates to closer business relationships and better customer service but without proper information and disclosure we cannot assert you to be as trustworthy as you'd like.

    that being said if you can improve your stature around here I would be very interested in your product should you prove it to be different than the others.

    Yes i will do by best to prove to you, like i said my company name is APBLED i mainly got started because i have been an offroader my whole life and i own a sand rail, multiple quads and multiple dirt bikes. I wanted lights on my cars and off road vehicles, but i didn't want to spend the money. So i went to china to pick out the best quality lights and once i did that i have them shipped over here. I assemble the casings myself in my garage, and i have the harnesses made. All led bars under a 20in come with a plug that plugs right into the harness. Every other light you have to cut right behind the plug on the harness and solder or plug them on a different way. I thought i was making a good product so i thought hmm the public might want to have these. I ended up selling my ford raptor because of payments and gas mileage, and bought a tacoma tx pro. After i did that i wanted to know more about the Tacoma's and what people do to them, so i read around them i thought i should post up my lights on tacoma world. What i am doing right now is making a stand to hold, almost all of my lights. What i can fit is a 7" flood light, 6" combo (flood and spot) a 30" flood, dually (a flood and spot so you can see the difference) and a 50" bar at the top. Once i finish that (will be this weekend) i will post pics of the wiring and night shots, believe me i am wanting to have these night shots ready but I'm busy with my actual job.

    Ahhhhh no offense man, that's great that you are trying to make some money on the side...but like we said, theirs been too many LED "businesses" starting up with guys that already have a job and are doing this out of their garage. In all honesty, I won't buy from guys like you. It's nothing personal, it's just that from past experience (Trek), guys that are doing this on the side out of their garage, just don't quite put as much care into their lights and customers. They find out that they can get these lights on the cheap and make a little money...then when there's alot of business, they get overwhelmed because they're still trying to work their day job, and we as customers suffer.

    Guys that have an actual offroad business and an online store with more than just lights are established and actually care about their name. I'll buy from them every time, because a bad review can definitely make or break their business. Garage businesses just roll over and try again. I would say, within the last two weeks I've seen 5 of this type of vendor open up on this site. All with the exact same lights with pretty much the exact same prices.

    That's just my opinion, good luck to you and your business venture here.
