Let me start out by saying I purchased a hydraulic lift kit for my 1025R from a fellow member. I seemed to be saving a few bucks so I pulled the trigger. When the parts arrived I was missing a few guide brackets that help support the hydraulic hoses. I figured no big deal I would call the JD dealer and have the parts ordered. So today, I sent the wife to pick up the parts since she was driving by the dealer and I had just gotten off work.
When she got home, she showed me the bill for the 3 guide brackets, 1 was $14.26 and the remaining 2 were $192.72 (96.36 X 2). I thought to myself.... you have GOT to be kidding me! I have no problem paying a premium price for a custom gear or something of that nature, but SERIOUSLY....can you tell me the reasoning for the MAJOR price difference between the two brackets..?
