I initially set out to provide the lowest cost, highest value, rocker plates to the masses because (at the time) the highest functioning rocker plates were $1,000+ USD. With inspiration from the Rocker Plates Facebook group I came up with the V1 of the Ride South rocker plate which I released the plans for free. I then started working on a V2 version which I had planned to sell for the low cost of $350 USD.
Fast forward to now and few dozen rocker plates sold and I just do not have the time to support the side project coupled with the fact that multiple “companies” have taken my plans and are now selling them as their own with very little modification. I have decided to just release all of the plans and source files and that is what this webpage is for.
In the manner of transparency, the links in the below table are mostly affiliate links where applicable. It costs you nothing to click them and helps me justify making more things to release for free in the future. (also worth noting, these are all parts required for the project and not random crap I am trying to sell you.)
