I would get rid of Teraflex and Tomken, add in Full Traction and Clayton Offroad Mfg.

I'd recommend dumping Tomken too. Their stuff seemed to be the 'the shit' when TJ's first came out (that's what I have so I can't comment on other brands), but as time has passed, their stuff hasn't been improved upon with the rest of the market. Only say this because I have (will be 'had' as soon as I get around to replacing the stuff Wink ) a couple of their products and am less than thrilled with them. I don't really endorse Tera stuff much anymore, have had failure, but I think it was due to other circumstances besides the manufacturers.

If possible, try and open discussion with as many vendors as possible. Do the 'drop ship' thing if possible so inventory isn't required and then you'd be more readily available to offer the 'flavor of the month' in a rather fickle market.

Tomken did redesign the rear bumper/tire carrier combo for Cherokees, and it's pretty strong (still installing it). The skid plate is no stronger than the Skid Row one though, although they were supposed to have redesigned that too. Rolling Eyes

right now I'm doing market research for a local dealership, and Corey and I might help them get it off the ground.

Thanks for all the input!
