DOM Tube now available at Ruffstuff!

I resisted selling DOM Tube for 6 years, and for what I thought was a pretty good reason.

My reasoning was the high cost of shipping heavy, longer items. 2" X .25 Wall DOM weighs nearly 8lbs a foot! The weight of a set of links quickly adds up. When you add the cost of shipping to even what seems to be a great deal online the benefits of the low price quickly disolve. What seems to be a high price within driving distance may become a bargain.

The problem was as time went by I noticed many other companies selling tube at what were stupidly high prices and they were actually selling. Well I've finally decided I can do better than that!



What is common business practice is to mark up your shipping price and make it profitable also. I see shipping as a cost of doing business and we charge what it actually costs us. We don't sell shipping, we sell parts! So here's what we're going to to. We are going to actually discount UPS shipping on tube to the extent of the discount we receive. We are also going to pick out one of our competitors and simply price our tube 10% less than theirs, unless they charge way too much! If thats the case we will lower tube prices even further, and I have just the company in mind

Since I wrote this I priced our tube VS the other guys I was pretty shocked by the prices they are charging. One company wants $1.90 an inch for 2" X .25" wall which is pretty much the standard link tube size. The other company wants $18 a foot, lower but still in the absurd price range! So, my estimation of 10% less was way off, we are at least 15% lower in every tube size for the first foot. The 2" X .25" tube on our site is available for $3.50 less a foot and available in 6" increments so you don't need to buy a foot more if you only need 6" more. Also, that price will only apply to the first foot to cover the cutting cost, every additional length to the size you need is ~ another 10% less so the final cost is very fair. All of our DOM is shipped from Chicago in 3,000' lots.

The shipping you may be charged will likely be wrong so if it gets out of this world give us a call to order, no matter, we will give you a call and let you know the actual cost to ship, thanks!

I will have an order for you soon.

My shopping carts says 11.50 for shipping. Is that correct. That would be 7- 48" sticks of 1.75x .120 and 3-36" sticks of 1.750x .120 if so shipping and prices are top notch.

I have ordered from those other guys. And it hurts.

Any chance you will offer 2.5"x .25" wall 4130? That is a popular size for modifying XJ drive shafts.
