Wow. Where is my fodder-pult?

I can't let this die so easily. I spend 10 days out of the country, and this is the best you all can do?! This should have been 19 pages of insults and misinformation by now!

sorry, but every other post from him is bashing all pro over trivial stuff, and I'm frankly sick of reading it.

It's one thing if it's in a thread about all pro, but it had NOTHING to do with this conversation.

Yeah, after reading the 1000th post from him bitching about how he doesn't like the way all pro builds stuff it finally pushed me over the edge.

As you can see I don't post much. The fact that he's drawn a reaction out of me should probably tell you something...

Not at all, the only All Pro gear on my truck is the front bumper and their exped leaf pack.

I love the leaf pack, the bumper... it's ok, I'd go relentless next time.

I'm really not a fan of some of their gear. The difference with me is that I simply don't buy it, I don't post endlessly about how much I hate it in completely unrelated threads

Anything is possible. And I do so applaude your efforts. Love that everyone is scrambling around trying to tell you no.

I love how there are several people in the thread saying it's not worth it. I'm not sure how they can say that seeing that their trucks don't have it and they have probably never been off road while driving a vehicle equipped with it. I have A-Trac in mine an LOVE it.

Itís definitely no substitute for a locker but it serves a purpose and does a very good job of it.

Good luck with this project I'm sure a lot of people would be interested if you can work out the bugs.

Lockers would be way easier to install and they provide better traction than ATRAC. Why try to install Michael J Fox from the present with Parkinson's when you can have 1985 Michael J Fox without Parkinson's?

My money is saying you'll crawl back into whatever hole you came out of and hide without backing up your statements like many other people on here.

I only bash products that suck. Customer feedback and peoples opinions should help them come up with better products. They have redesigned their sliders, bumpers, e-locker guards, etc based on feedback.

If you have a problem, neg rep me and leave your name and a comment. Report one of my posts. Send me a PM. Throw me on your ignore list. If you wanna battle in the open then so be it, but I'm sure Ill win based on your comments to date.

Oh so you don't like your bumper? Why? My comments have helped many people choose far superior products regarding bumpers saving them from having to purchase 2 bumpers like it sounds you need to do. Maybe if you had done your research you wouldn't of bought one you dislike....or maybe just listened to people who know.

If I didn't have a hockey game to watch, beers to drink, and a hot girl to do it with I would have fun with you tonight. Ill let you comment all night and see what you can come back with tomorrow. If you don't want to start a war in the open then I invite you to send me a PM full of constructive criticism.
First of all, what personal attack? It's not like I said you don't have a life as you intimated was the case with me. I said I wish you would stop posting the same bullshit over and over in every thread you participate in. On the contrary, I'd say it's you who's tossing personal insults around. Whatever, I have my big boy pants on, I can take it.

I didn't take a picture when I jacked the truck up on the end of one slider, but I'm absolutely sure it was touching the pinch weld. Big deal, no serious damage done. I didn't say that my sliders won't flex, I said they didn't bend or break, and really the flex was surprisingly minimal. And sorry, I too have better things to do than to run outside and jack up my truck and take pictures to post on the internet just to satisfy your curiosity. Maybe later this weekend if I have time...

Negative rep you? Please, like I care what your status is on this forum. You are right that this was probably not the right venue in which to criticize your posting habits, I just find that reading the same shit over and over from you can be a bit exasperating and I'd finally had enough. For what it's worth, you're welcome to get the last word here and if I really feel the need to respond I will take it to private message, but frankly I don't think I care enough.

You may really know your shit, you may be a really great guy, but your incessant posting about "here we go again" all over this forum negatively impacts the quality of this forum for me, and I can only assume other people. Keep your constructive feedback where it belongs, dial down the vitriol and I think everyone will be happy.

As for my bumper, at the time it was arguably my best choice, shrockworks was too heavy for my liking, arb actually decreases your clearance, and I wanted plate not tube. If relentless was an option back then I would have gone for it. It's alright, I'm not losing sleep over it or anything. It's still a good bumper and will hopefully serve me for a long time to come.

What I don't like about it is the sectional design (which seemed advantageous when ordering, but now I'm not as sure), and the fact that the wings are not as well supported as I would like (which is at least in part sue to it being sectional). Oh, and the powder coating on mine left something to be desired, so I have since had it coated with Tyro (like line-x but arguably better). Really, I'm not sure that powder coating is ever the right choice with something that has so many sharp edges.

Anyway, I won't participate any further in this discussion in this thread.

What I will say is that I'm going to do the yellow wire mod tonight and hopefully have a chance to see the results when I go for a trail run this Saturday.
