Default Man-A-Fre going under?

Went over to MAF yesterday looking for a dual battery tray for the 40 and they are closed for "restructuring."

I hope they are just restructuring, besides Kurt, they are my go-to for parts.

Anyone have any insider info?

Well, I'm 'local' but not driving 100 miles to find out for anyone. ;-)

The word that I heard was that the owner, Al, wants to sell off his inventory and retire.

Happy to report to everyone that Man-A-Fre is still in business and now under new management by a very dedicated team of Land Cruiser owners and builders. The website has just finished going through a complete revision and we are adding more inventory to the site every week. If you have questions, we're here to help and we look forward to hearing from you.

I've purchased a few remaining Kaymar parts from them recently. Nice conversation.

I use the extended 80-series version on my 100. Been on there for over 2 years with zero issues. I don't see them listed anymore though.
