I think you are a bit confused. They did not "stop making them" as there was only one production run.

They have sold almost all of that production run and have no intention of doing another. If you need them, I suggest you buy them.

Yea i just bought a set, didn't realize it was just one production run, I guess there's not enough demand for em to keep makin em.

well i guess lsuzu folks are just gonna be out of luck, that sucks man, might order another set of gears now incase the rear end does eventually blow I won't be screwed and have to get a whole nother axle since they won't have any more 5.38's

Just to be clear....when you Say "they" that means Me

i have purchased all the remaining new stock of 5.38's for the isuzu 12 bolt. i do have a number of sets left, but they are selling well in the SAS market for Isuzu's.

I have not decided to totally abandon the idea of future gear runs.... If I decide to run gears again it may be with a different Mfg.

Obvious issues with something like tis are LOW production numbers, recent increases in Materials (steel), and increases in shipping costs. BASICALLY, it would be hard to make them again and seel them as cheap as i am now. :(


so, not totally dead.........
