I have had excellent luck from my Titan forks. Did I feel great about purchasing them? Not really. It's well known how and why Titan forks are so inexpensive. I would have happily paid more than I paid for the Titans to purchase forks from Artillian but seeing the price and shipping exceeding a particular price mark solely swayed my decision. I never doubted the forks was not worth the money, just wasn't worth the money to me.Mexico is in North America... Just sayin'...
I was in a similar position a couple months back. I finally got brave enough to take the plunge and trust Titan. Turned out very well for me. Great price, quick shipping, no manufacturing problems, and they work just like they should. I'm guessing that the ~$800 I saved vs. comparable Artillians I can buy a dedicated grapple (or loader add-on) if needed.
