    I may be able to get into the aftermarket parts business. I just had a conversation with a local distribution house for performance and exhaust aftermarket parts about me selling aftermarket stuff on this website and he will do the drop shipping. I'd then be able to sell for rock bottom prices.

    Who's interested? If you are, what are the top items that you would buy? This is the line sheet.

    I'd be interested. The bigger items I'm looking at right now are performance exhaust (thinking Magnaflow), cold air intake, and a programmer. Cosmetically, I might be looking for things like new gas cap cover etc.

    Yes, because cheap doesn't always mean low quality. The majority of the manufacturers on your list are 1st rate, well known, & high quality.
    (better headers & exhaust, body lift, suspension lift, steering, dropped center link, A arms, rear gears, bearings, "dropped pittman arm" still looking lol)

    That's the general idea. I'm going to make a go of this and need some input on what parts to start listing first.

    x2....I am sure we could all use something that those companies sell at one time or another....better pricing = more mods = more things to talk about here = better forum = happier members = ....well, you get the picture.

    I'd definitely be interested. My budget is always my biggest limitation, but when I need some parts or want to do some mods, I have a feeling this could be as useful of a resource as this site itself is. I am trying to find my next truck here, so I would then be in the market for a Diablosport Predator, probably a muffler/exhaust at some point, maybe an intake, and possibly some running boards or something like that. Depending on what I end up with, I might be interested in some AMP research steps at some point too.

    Thats my input on this, and I think thats a pretty cool idea you have there Steve.

    ok, I'm pursuing this idea. Thanks for the input everyone. I'm going to close this thread down, keep your eyes out.

    Just to keep everyone up to speed - we are building out the catalog system and working on how the flow of orders will be handled. I have to figure out how to do customer service so I might have to hire someone to work part time to answer emails and check stock and pricing, etc. But otherwise this looks like a business opportunity.

    I've got a guy who's ready to jump into the pool with me, he's been selling parts for 30 years and knows aftermarket inside and out. I'm getting excited, that's for sure.

    I would be depending on the item and discount.

    I'm going to get to work on this again, I'm going to need to develop a new source of income and if I can help people out by giving a discount and also make something myself than so much the better.

    If you need help I'll do what I can. I've been in auto, powersports, heavy truck, parts for more years than I want to remember at times. Lol Good luck with this.
