Just about every aftermarket off road vendor offers a unique twist on rocker guards.
--So great, NalinMFG is another vendor offering something slightly different to try and win my business, right?
Well, yes and no.
I've been doing custom rockers on the side for almost two years now. What is the one thing I've taken away from every customer?
"They cost too much and I can't find ones that I like"
What if I said that NalinMFG can offer the budget minded Jeeper rocker blanks for $139? You could select additional options to include dimpled steps, pre bent tubes, etc for more to ship with your order. I could even customize anything you want to be cut into the rockers/steps for a small custom fee.
$139 plus around $50 shipping to your door is the selling point of this. I feel like there is a fair sized target audience willing to trade their labor time for a lower priced/less complete product.
(Blanks consist of just the bare steel rocker guards. No logo. No steps/tubes. No paint/powdercoat. Laser cut holes/not countersunk.)
Is this something that you may be interested in? What questions or suggestions do you have regarding custom/DIY rockers? What other information would you like to see if you were shopping for something like this?
Sounds like a great idea for the the guy that wants to weld his own, but I don't see a great $$ savings vs. say a competitive version. ie....your version with countersunk bolts, step, and tube not welded comes out, according to your website, at $359.00 shipped, vs. a competitive brand shipped already welded with step and countersunk bolts for $319.00. It would nice to see a $$ savings for doing our own welding. Your pricing is not out of line at all, don't get me wrong, I'm just giving my input on the matter. I like where your going with this product, I just think the pricing points need to be fine tuned a bit. If your looking to just provide an offering to this niche of the market, then I think your probably in line with everyone else out there.
