    I know i know, they got a bad rep but i figured as long as i purchased product, and didn't have them install i would be fine. I purchased some billys from them, and they had some shipped from another location to me. Well i got what look like USED product. there's dirt in the threads, the black covers all all dirty and dinged up and there is blue sharpie markings on the struts...BITCHES! They are overnighting me another set free of charge.

    ps - the only reason i bought from them is because they are right up the street, and they matched DSM's price..

    "I didn't know they were used" was the explanation i got. The boxes they came in were even all tattered and torn. They are sending a new set overnight.

    I purchased from a local 4 wheel parts store up the street, not online. They didn't have them in stock so they had another store ship them.

    The staff is not very knowlegable. They have been know to do shadey work on customers vehicles, and their prices seem a little out of line. Out of the experiances I have had with 4wheel parts, only one time was good. The rest were below excpectations.
