Default Re: Morgan's 2004 ranger

yeah I agree with mac, I mean the materials alone cant be that cheap, and I doubt he gets aton for labor... its just pricey, but hey its an expensive hobby right? Id just rather try to do it myself for the experience more than anything. well that and Im one to always try to do something cheap.

Understandable maybe, but that doesn't mean I have to agree with it. As a buyer I could never justify $1600 for install alone.

The point of running a business is to make money. And his install prices are still cheaper than blitzkrieg, camburg, DMV, or other big fan shops.

Obviously...... and they should be considering its full blown specific shops vs a garage at a house.
