Re: K10 chassis from Roadster Shop- nice

Though it would be nice, but almost $37k, Just for the chassis? I wish I had that kind of spare money.

Re: K10 chassis from Roadster Shop- nice

It's nice, for sure. But way overpriced. There's probably ~$15K just in the Currie axles. I traded a few emails with one of their sales guys to see if they'd sell a stripped down version of it. Reply was no, package only. But also got a fair amount of uneducated baloney that nobody else's axles or link suspension would work with their chassis.

The suspension is there own design. It makes sense that no other link suspension or axles would "work" with there chassis. They would have to be all custom items build for their geometry.

Re: K10 chassis from Roadster Shop- nice

It's a great time to be alive. 1000hp crate engines and modern re-engineered off the shelf chassis for classic cars.

For those who may be inclined to complain about the cost, just look at the price of a top spec new truck. It's easy to hit $100k for just another truck, which will likely be financed.

If you think that a luxury barge new truck and a $100k chassis build customer are that much different, just consider that the average age of a new truck buyer is 55.

With that much money invested into that chassis, I'd have to locate a Plexiglas cab and bed just to show it off!

Re: K10 chassis from Roadster Shop- nice

Yeah but how many are going to drop that much on all that, then go out and actually reap the full benefits of what that investment bought? Without spending such ridiculous money on building the trucks I've done in the past, I have already arrived at the place where you realize once you get them done they are too nice to enjoy. I'm happy where I am now. Just enjoy actually using trucks that are 'nice enough'. It will be interesting to see the trucks that get built off that chassis. I am fine with watching other people spend their money.

Re: K10 chassis from Roadster Shop- nice

I don't need all the fancy stuff. I use my truck on and off road. The truck does fine the way the general designed it...

You know I will never drive mine in the rain, let alone actually use it.

That chassis is impressive, but I like our trucks because of the simplicity. I will buy a driver K truck when the right one comes along. I've been driving my son in laws K10 the last couple of days. It is the perfect truck.

Probably what I should do with this one, but I have the chassis built already.
