Gear Vendors deal?

Hey all, anyone know where to get a great deal on Gear Vendors? If I pay full retail, shipping, and tax, it's way out of my price range...not just out of...
Used or refurb would be an option.
Thanks, Sebastian

I did quite a few up-grades on our BB 95 Burb TV, done at 15K it took 'til about 140k before I started realizing any actual savings. Point being it takes awhile to re-coup the investment.
I would consider other options before spending the big bucks on the GV option.

Open up the intake and exhaust, new cam, carb etc,etc.

Thanks for the feedback. I already have a Banks system and TBFI, and I'm thinking about a roller cam, but power is not really an issue. I know I won't get a huge improvement in MPG...I would be doing it for lower rpm on the highway and the 3 low gear for going up hills. I have a new motor and rebuilt TH 475 as of 4k miles ago, and I like the idea of quieter and cooler.

I picked one up on e-bay and it's not a big jump in mpg but dropping the rpms and noise level on the diesel is more than worth the cost. Also brings the cruising speed up to a more comfortable range.
