    Profit margin, profit margin, profit margin. You have enough demand that you should be self sustaining and shouldn’t have to fund anything out of pocket. The product should be able to do that for you.

    I'll bet a set of Puddle Lights that Toyota Corp has a +$500 trim option for a blacked out interior on the 2022 Tacoma.

    You had me. For half a second. But you had me. There was an audible gasp in the room.

    Doesn't @MESO also 3d print most everything he makes? If so, the economies of scale just aren't there like they are for traditional manufacturing so it doesn't make a lot of sense to make a lot of everything.

    I 3D print some stuff. But most has moved over to injection molding for increased production, profit and color options.

    Nice, so much cheaper per part if you're making enough of them to justify the tooling purchase.

    Its gone because

    He sells stuff people want

    He has quality items

    He stands behind his product

    Its a very small operation

    Because everyone here plus others with the stupid amount of 3rd gen tacomas on the road want his products

    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!
    How strange!?!? You must be stalking me Eddy, cause I specifically remember being in line at Dublin Donuts purchasing something mini’s, but had to veer out of line to finish my Molle purchase.
    True Story.

    I now get a peanut donut (for protein) and a coconut toasted (for shiny hair) then I am set for the day ;) BRAPppp

    I must say that Stew’s upgrades have been some of my favorites thus far. Like a kid under the XMas tree; well I had to stalk Santa and Pay him, but it’s was worth the mods!

    @MESO your shirt was so popular at one of the events I went to that it was stolen in the night.

    Yep, my Meso Coin Holder (empty version) fits 4 donut holes closed and 5 stacked (not recommended).
