Please let me know if any of ya'll are thinking about any channel or fittings from their line. I work for a construction supply company and we are a huge stocking distributor for their entire line. We are north of downtown just outisde 610 loop. I have been in Home Depot and seen what they charge for the strut. Don't buy from them unless you have to, I would be more than happy to use my employee discount on anything in their product line for any fellow yakers. Check out their webpage http://www.unistrut.us/ and give me a pm or call our office (and yes you can even ask for StinkyPickle and they will send you to me)713-692-2323 not trying to plug our business, we just stock a large selection of their material and the brackets to go with it. I am fixing to be modding a trailer with a buddy and we are looking at using the "TeleStrut" system. I'll get some before and after pics up. Here is just an idea of the price difference, hope this is ok with the moderators just these days any extra cash can go for gas!
1 5/8" 12gauge Half Slot strut -
Home Depot - 1.79ft
MrStinkyPickle - TKF brother in law special - 1.07

It started as a Harbor Freight trailer, a pile of SuperStrut and some scrap steel from the dumpster. I added a couple of coats of spray-on bedliner coating and a recycled battery box for tie-down and tools.
