Default JDM 80 Racks

Anybody interested in going in with me to get a rack or two from Japan? I'm prolly going to get one of these if all works out.

If we can get a few of us together we should be able to get them here for under $1,000 new. The more we order the cheaper it is. If anyone has a request for something different. I'm all ears.

For that price you can get a really sweet modular, aluminum Outback rack. I think I'll pass.

Are those aluminum or steel? Looks like they're running $550 for a 1/2 rack and nearly $1,200 for a full w/rails. That's $300 more than I'm hoping to get one of the others here for.

Aluminum. Out's have the sweet hold down system and are completely modular so if you decide you dont need the rails you can take 'em off and start parking in the garage again! Modular is worth $300 to me easily! If you do some snooping and have cash to buy you can shake out a better price too as there are a few vendors here in the states. Do a group buy on the Out's and I bet the price would come down quite a bit too!
