I have seen many of these truck stands made out of pvc and such. Does anyone have the plans for how to make them or tell me a good theory on how to go about it?

Here's a link to one for Savages, you could go from there if you have something else.

I'd like to know how to make one for a aftershock/lst2... They seem like a good option because they're cheap to make and they are also realitively easy to make also =-]

I have one I built. I dont know the dimensions I just cut and glued and painted. Its easy. Just try. I added some grip tape around the top to stable the truck while runnig. Works great.

Yeah, I spayed it with flat black, then made some decals to go on it. It does look a lot better then just white.

Does your offer still stand for making stickers for bodies if we send them to you?

More costly than what? I spent about $18 including PVC glue and Krylon Fusion paint at Lowe's. It doesn't get much cheaper than that for a solid, secure work stand...a lot of people don't even use glue or paint on theirs.

Wave Waker made mention that it was not that cheap to make one out of pvc. I have seen the ones on ebay and such and it seems alot more than i can go to menards and get a piece for and i have the cutter, saw and glue and paint.

I still dont think it would be that much to buy a stick and some elbows?
