    OP what part are you waiting for? Did you put email address in so you would get contacted when back in stock? I did that a while ago once I got email jumped on it. Meso stuff is so awesome that’s why it’s sells out.

    Supply and demand.
    Demand greater than supply.
    That is capitalism....it’s how the system works outside of Commieville.
    Great problem to have.
    I ❤️ capitalism!

    This is reason numero uno. It’s not like his stuff is getting churned out by a factory. He can only make so much. Combined with the quality and creativity of his gear, demand will always be greater than supply.

    And being a Business owner my self, I can appreciate him, making stuff he likes and not going down the rabbit hole of full on manufacturing and all the bullshit that comes with it. Maybe someday he will, but if not having a hobby that makes some money and doesn’t kill you is good.

    Hmmmmmm I wonder....ohhhh wait. It’s because so many people buy it all and sign up for notifications and wait until it’s available. Patience is a wonderful thing.:thumbsup:

    HAHA love all the responses. None were correct though...
    The real reason is Toyota Motors North America has been working with me directly to now include ALL MESO products on the 2021 Tacoma production line.

    lol.. I wish


    But really it comes down to a few simple reasons:
    1)It takes time to make a quality product. I don't just rush something so I can make a sale to you guys.
    2)I fund everything out of pocket; R&D, Prototyping, Production, packaging, etc. Spread that across 20-30+ items, and I just can't make a trillion of everything. So I have to wager my own bets of how many color/qty/config/etc to make then cross my fingers.
    3)Demand has been high. Now that I have dealers, and my name is (kinda) growing it the aftermarket Toyota accessory world, I under estimate how much product to make(revert back to #2)

    The final reason most everything is out of stock because I have spent the last few months behind the scenes gearing up for a massive restock. (and a lot of working capital). I always suggest to sign up for the email notifications because it will alert you as soon as I restock said item. Another way is to follow me on IG(yeah, it's a necessary evil) because I post updates on there too.

    tip: It's going to be a spoooky product release ;)

    I dig the current model. The few things I managed to nab make me feel all exclusive and cool, 'cause other people don't have it.

    I'm somebody because I have a red button and you don't.

    I'm guessing the items in stock are the ones he makes a profit on. All else that is out of stock he doesn't.

    Oftentimes there's many variable costs that are difficult to plan for that ultimately make a product unprofitable to manufacture.
