It does not ridge.  I have thought about different ways of adding it but haven't succeeded yet. 

I haven't really had enough interest in them to justify doing a larger quantity batch.  But I do have a few of the first batch left.  $65 plus shipping.

Couldn't the mold just be modified slightly to incorporate the ridge? 

Not nit picking it all, they look great!  Just wondered if there was a way to make them nearly indistinguishable from the OEM version!

I am not having these molded, they are a modified aftermarket cap. 

I looked at ways to add the ring, all would add cost.  Would you be willing to pay more if I were to add the ring?

Smart idea, I hadn't thought of that.  Good way to do it and save building a mold.  I'm sure building a mold would be pricey also. 

Not sure...... I'm cheap like every sledder.  Lol.  In all honesty, they look really good regardless.

Yeah, I work in the manufacturing/plastics industry and have had to have some plastic injection molds made.  I can tell you it would be AT LEAST $10k to have a mold made.   :o

That's my conclusion as well they look damn good and are near perfect, why add the ring and drive up the cost. 

Let me know if you want one.  Thanks
