I am about to order new oem radiator hoses for my build, but searching lead me to old threads about these silicone hoses and my interest is piqued.
I did contact them thru FB and a reply says they ARE currently working to restock the V2 hoses.
No ETA (of course!)

Do any of you have any history with their product? Success stories?

No personal experience, but quite a few TBSS owners were big fans of them.

I have colored silicone hoses from BonoSpecialties I found on Instagram. Like them.

I have them on my TBSS and have had no issues. I don't know who runs DP Hoses now as Rodney passed away in 2018 I haven't seen or heard of Kyle (ForceFed) in a long time.

I have purchase from siliconehosekits.net in the past, no issues so far. I see hoses for V1 and V3, I'd contact them about V2.
Thanks for the tip. I contacted him an got this (surprising) reply:
, <<<I have chosen not to do the V2 kits since they are available thru DPhoses.com
SamcoSport would be a better quality hose but most likely 20-30% more expensive and I fight that battle enough>>>

DPHoses has indicated that they have some on order, just no idea when they'll get 'em.

It is REALLY frustrating how common this refrain is, these days.

I have sent messages....

I'm not certain I will go with silicone, just looking at options (factory hoses outlast the car, apparently) it's just that I'm into this build too deep to NOT renew the hoses..

I was tempted to put "DAD BOD" or "DAD WGN" on my Wagon, but then I'm like... it probably sounds like a gay thing.

ETA "not that there's anything wrong with that! "

Anyway, I have some DP (gosh, that gay thing again) radiator hoses and they are of excellent quality. Been daily driving them since like 2017 and no issues. Too bad they're no longer being offered.

I purchased a set from a seller on egay called Glenn’s auto performance for my car and I have no issues with them. I just checked and they are out of stock as well though so back to the drawing board.
