I was able to build mine for $275 if I was paying competitive fab rate for my time. No fancy laser cut pieces but it is chromoly tubing serves the same function as the old socal ones. Allstons sells the prebent crossmember and the mount adapter for the trans. I just had to make the gussets and frame rail tabs. I can see where landon is coming from, I wouldn't want to make 100 of them hoping to make say 5g profit only to sit on them for 2 yrs

If you do decide to get into doing them just do preorders I bet you could get at least a dozen if not more.

Well, I'll be darned. There IS interest in them again.

I had NO IDEA that Landon was the one who made them originally, let alone that he made that lower control arm piece. Wish I would've known about that piece back when I was running BBT. Every little bit helps.

Sean makes an EXCELLENT point. Do prepaid orders, or at least ask for half (3/4?) down from people by a certain date before you make them.

I've been wanting to make them for a while. I don't think it would be a high volume item but I want to do a few for sure. I've been giving hints a few times a week now that my truck is apart.

If the SoCal ones are made again I would suggest making the main tube thicker. Mine keeps breaking
