We lost a good one after 53 years that had quality parts and was unique in offering either weld in or bolt in for most installations.

I'd rather walk and carry a Chevy hub cap than ride in a Ferd.

That is a real loss. I did notice that some of their products were disappearing from the website. They made some pretty good equipment. It is too bad they didn't sell their designs to someone else. I guess they don't want someone else making an inferior version of their products.

They made me custom motor mounts to put the 292 in my 53 1/2 ton. Charged me next to nothing.

Old enough to know better, too young to resist.

Looks like Chassis Engineering Inc. was bought and merged with Heidts in January. They are keeping two separate websites.
