That's what I said about my chopped crossmembers, before porterbuilt came along.  LOL
I have been searching EVERYWHERE to find someone to do these for the past 10 years.  Finally figured the best person to do it was me...
I hope they take off.  When I started I had 150 people in a list wanting them, I am sure there are more now, so...

Any ballpark on the price?

Will they come as 1, 2 or 3 gauge options?

For the ones that go over the factory pillar, I am hoping on 25 for single, 35 for double and 45 for triple

When the complete replacement ones are done, I am shooting for 50 for a single, 60 for a double and 70 for a triple.

Price for all will be dependent on the current price for plastic and manufacturing costs and I haven't gotten that far yet.

This is a view from where it is mounted and driver perspective.  The mounting hole is probably going to dictate how low they will be mounted on the full sets, and this is as low as it will be able to go and not cover the hole.

Feedback?

That's awesome. So will you be selling them in that configuration where you could buy a single pod and then graft it on to the existing trim piece? I would be interested in that single pod just the way it is in the picture and mount it higher up on the pillar. My tach is low on the pillar now attached with the trim screw and it blocks all the defroster action to the side window.

Yes they will be just like that for the individuals in single, double and triple configuration.  There will also be a complete pillar with the same options once these are completed.
