    Probably because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

    All my rigs are purpose built. From crawling to camping. I also enjoy a nice stock truck for what that’s worth. Toyota’s are the jam!

    Try getting on the waiting list for the part you want. Be ready to purchase as soon as you see the email notifying you it’s in stock.

    For the reason that you want to buy their stuff. So does everyone else.

    I think Stu is a smart and conservative businessperson. I assume he makes limited quantities because he has no interest in sitting with dead inventory. As demand increases, he makes more. His cost of goods sold are not small (look at his packaging) so he is careful with his purchase orders. This is just my guess, but I would expect he will answer on his own.

    well there are a couple things here
    1. His stuff sells out quick or is a limited run
    2. There are email notifications that you can sign up for
    3. For the most part it's a 2 man operation from I understand and that limits production (given the size though I would say that it amazes me how much he has available when he does announce things)
    4. Looks like you just join in July and have a 2020 Tacoma, there's people that have been on here a LONG time and are still waiting for things to come back in stock. i.e. I waited about a year for the TRD Shift knobs w/ECT relocate to come in stock.

    In conclusion just gotta wait, be patient and try not to do too much too fast. Sign up for the notifications and just be ready to drop $$$ when its available.

    EDIT: Also try not to go through the distributors from what i've seen they just place an order for you and it comes from him still. Unless they have stock on hand i would just go through the main site

    makes it more exciting when you finally get your hands on something. Also, it’s worth the wait. And if you are trying to decide between 2 colors on something, buy them both :thumbsup: it’s no fun to see them sellout while you are trying to figure it out.

    He's also a "TINY" distributor. He only has himself and another gentleman (from what I know of) doing the work. Everything from design, concept and final product is done with very few hands.
