I was curious... how big of a company is Air Ride and/or Airlift? Estimated worth? Just wondering how much room there is for success in this kinda area....

ART arms are nice too... be sure to pick some up! How are these things produced? Mass produced I'm sure, but how exactly?

(BTW, DONT MOVE THIS.. I JUST ASKED SOMETHING RELATING TO BAGGAGE SO DONT MOVE IT.)

define mass produced. air lift has been around a long time. i have pics of race cars from the early 60's with air lift stickers on them. if i was to wager a bet, i would say that air lift is a lot bigger company. i would be curious to know to.

airlift has about 60 employees from what ive heard.


tony owns and runs ART. he's the only one that works there too. if you call there and you get someone else, its just tony disguising his voice.

When I called and ordered my tubular control arms Tony was pretending to be alady named Gene and he must have caller ID because everytime I called he answered sounding like the same lady named Gene. Damn he is a sneaky one. LOL Thats just GREAT.

The main thing you have to look at here is they are creating the market for the future manufactures and distributors to step into in the upcoming years. So each year when sales are up 50%-100% by 2006 you will realize you have created a moster within the market and that will only bring new and exciting ventures. There is a lot to be said for both companies and their stratigic marketing plans for this and the hot rod industry which are much larger than the truck market by far..................

60-Employee's (Minimum $15,000 Year each) $900,000+ in just salaries paid each year with an average 20%-30% profit margin. you do the figures...............................
