Good, 'cause I can't afford much of the cool stuff as it costs now.

I'm very happy with my TG stuff, and I shop at WalMart. If time is money, I'm spending mine with my kids, not on overpriced stuff.

Thanks. It's nice to hear your candid opinion about me and over half of my clients. (there needs to be a flipoff smiley)

If we are making generalities, why not stick it to the entire 4x4 community. Have you taken a look at what some wheelers call professional fabrication? One glance through Pirate, or any other forum for that matter, will easily show how it's not just mini truck owners. Everyone wants something for nothing.

Well, as usual, no tone and no context means I get everything all wrong! LOL!

But...No.

The reason trail gear does well is that they sell a large number of products to mini truck people. Mini truck people are some of the cheapest, most ghetto wheelers out there. I'm one of them, so I know. We want a 100k rock crawler performance out of a truck, but want it for 200 bucks. Its insane. If you are curious, check out yotatech or the mini truck forum on Pirate. SOOOO many posts on "I'm on a tight budget, how do I trick out my ride for 1000 bucks?" or "what is the cheapest, best way to do x..." or "I want to buy a winch, but the cost of a superwinch or warn is ridiculous, can anyone comment on this chinese made winch for 35 bucks?"

"Cheapest" and "Best" very rarely go hand in hand.

The reason Trail Gear does well is that while there are several companies that sell similar products, in particular suspension and drivetrain products, Trail gear is the cheapest. They do the most business because, if you only have a certain amount of money, you may as well get the most modifications for your coin.

I'll let others sort out reliability. I don't have a stick in that fire.

Sorry for the rant. Cheapskates kinda get under my skin, despite the fact that I end up having to be one of them from time to time.
I agree, but I be that cheap skate. I got bad credit, and I live in a single wide, and your bashing is welcome if you think it's deserved. I don't get to enjoy this hobby if it weren't for a $2000 4runner, junk yards, and companies like TG. My challenge has been learning to have respect for yuppies.

Gotta read above man. I was being sarcastic and joking. I'm not bashing you. Sent you an apology in a PM.

I removed my posts. I apologize to anyone who was offended. I can see they were in bad taste, and I hope their aren't any hard feelings. I thought I was being funny, but I always forget that I'm bad at humor
