    So, in other words, because there was miscommunications between their sales team and production team it makes it okay? It isn't out of the companies control at all. No matter how you word it, it is still an error on them. Not some random customer complaining about something.

    Also, never knew calling somebody ignorant was name calling, but take it how you will.

    Why do you keep attacking this guy?
    Calling someone ignorant could be name calling, to some. Seems like YOU aren't understanding what he's saying.
    The man never said anything about the situation being "okay", just that he understands, because he knows the inner workings of this particular company, how things could get lost in the shuffle.
    Just seems like you're having a bad day and taking it out on him...not cool.

    OP, I think that you were valid in posting this review of All-Pro.... (not that you needed my opinion)

    The thing that business's owners need to realize is that social media is a very lopsided view of product satisfaction.... you hardly hear about the GOOD product expirences..mostly about the bad expirences

    found this article very interesting...

    Posting a single reply attacking, then having him clear up his thoughts to you, then attacking him again is attacking.
    Just calling it what it is. All because YOU don't comprehend what he's saying. Then again, you probably won't comprehend what I'm saying either.
    Good luck with this one, AllPro.

    All Pro has already taken care of the issue and sent my bed rack. The fact that others continue to post their opinion of how I should see my experience is really useless at this point.

    This thread was created to let others know, and that has been done. So thank you to those that took my review as advice instead of an offense.

    Not much.
    I've heard nothing but good about you guys. I know nothing about business, but I imagine it can be difficult to please everyone and maintain a good rapport with repeat customers or even new.

    Great response and attitude in my opinion. Unfortunate situation to be in, on both ends, but going the extra mile to rectify it is respectable to me.

    well i placed an order for a set of leaf springs on March 28th and then saw this thread later that afternoon. i was a worried i might run into problems with my order but it had already been placed so i decided to ride it out. on post #63 allpro said "no worries, my order would be fine". well thats not the case so far. the gentleman who took my order said i could expect delivery April 2nd. when that didnt happen i called (April 3) and spoke with Tracy. after i was on hold for a bit, she told me that the springs were not shipped because they were waiting on a shipment of bushings. tracy asked if i would like an email to notify me of a "better" eta. of course i said yes. today is April 7th. i dont know if the springs have shipped and i never got the email. im not going to say anything bad about allpro, i am only posting to share this experience. lets see what happens

    The bed rack was delivered to me today. Got it all mocked up, but then I had to drill out all of the holes. Had to buy 14 more nuts and bolts as well because they only gave me enough to put the rack together, not enough to bolt it to the truck or bolt the accessory bars on.

    Still have to bore out the accessory bars as well, they are much more off so I figured I'd wait until I have time to measure everything out and try to get them lined up as best I can...

    I'm just glad to have it and get it installed. Really like it so far.

    Been following this thread lol Pack Rack does look good BTW. I have always had good experiences with All Pro. Sucks to hear that you didn't. I'm sure things will get better once they are settled all in one location. Leaf springs ordered on Friday and you expected them on a Wednesday? From their new location in Montana to Texas?


    Oh and I would appreciate a GB on Rear Bumpers All Pro. :threadjacked:

    Just saw this thread right now. I happen to have almost everything AP makes for tacomas on my truck (Except LT kit). I must say, they have ALWAYS made it right with everything I have ever ordered from them. Their products & Customer Service is top notch. I have come to be good friends with the sales team and owners. OP im glad they explained the situation to you and you got your products. I saw that you are in the AF stationed at Whiteman. What do you do??? I spent 6 years at Barksdale AFB (98-04) working on Air Launched Cruise missiles (AGM-86B, AGM-129) Got out as a Tech Select (E-6)

    I didn't read the whole thread.

    :crapstorm:


    But I had good experiences with their Customer Service and willingness to customize (or not customize) my order at my request. They were up front with how long my request would delay my order. Everything came in as promised.

    In short, I had a good enough experience that I will likely do business with them in the future.
