Thanks! the shackles are something I dont really want to impose on in the market, it seems there is quite a few suppliers now. where as my skid plates are my own design and no one else supplies them. I dont mind making some up to help out people of long wait periods from other suppliers, but I dont want at all to cause any conflict with those who have been here selling them. But it is a possibility. Anyway thanks for the welcome back and I will be around more often. On another note does anyone know of a redesign on the Colly coming up soon? I would love to see if there is a new design on the way.

Welcome back. I am pretty sure that you will be getting quite a few requests for the plates. I know that I will be hitting you up when the times come for mine...

Thanks! 4wd for right now. I will see how it goes for the 2 wheel drives. I will also see if my plates can be modified or work on 2 wheels drive models.

Would you consider requests for other parts? I love the set of plates I got from you ( full set - front diff, oil pan, and T-case ).

What I'm looking for is a push bumper that mounts by sandwiching between the frame and the tow hooks. I have a pair o 10" lights that I'd like to mount on it.

If you're interested I can sketch something up.

Again - I love the plates I got from you man and welcome back!

There are pictures on here. Try searching. If you can't find them I'll crawl under my truck and take a picture.

Hey rangerbob, I depends how complicated it is. If you can get me a really good shop drawing with lots of dimensions and a couple views it would be something I would like to do. but I do need quite a bit of info from you on the design and getting it right the first time is always hard without the truck here to build it with. maybe email me with some more info and if you can a sketch and we can go from there :)

jetpilot im sorry i dont have any photos yet. Im working on it with the new sets im getting done. But there should be something on here from awhile back if you search.

Could you please direct me to any one person/member/supplier that makes the 2" shackles?

I've been looking for them for over three weeks now and have yet to find a single pair.

It's like they've disappeared off the face of the earth
