    One of the benefits of being a part of a community of nice people, like the offroading community, is that people will generally go out of their way to help each other out. They will also go out of their way to screw over people that deserve it, like Nate.

    Let that be a warning to anyone who chooses to accept money from a forum member without the means to provide the product/service. We all understand that in life, things happen. What we don't understand is how someone can take money from someone in good faith, and then not only not be able to deliver, but go out of their way to avoid contact with that person for months. That is not excusable, at all, no matter what the circumstances are.

    Hey guys first post here. Just wanted to let you know my first hand experience with Nate. Bought an LT kit for my tundra from him and on install it didn't fit right. The lower arms hit metal to metal on up travel. I did evrything I could to make it work and talked to Nate. He promised me from April of this year that He would have a new kit to me. Always had a sob story of why he couldn't get it done. And would say I just neeed another week or two. His big one is how he has to put food on the table for his kids. Nate puts on a front being this very nice guy but he is a shitty business man and has screwed me and countless other people over at socaltundras.

    I just resolved it myself this week by fixing the kit myself. He has not contacted me since he disapeared off of SCT.

    I had to nothc the inside of the lower arms to allow it to hit the bumps. Because his kit goes straight from the hinge to the center point, it leaves no area for adjustment in your alignment. The only to run it is all the way out. And even then I had to grind like hell on the mounts to make them not hit.

    Wow what a looser to do this to someone who worked hard to save up money for an lt kit then get screwed over with some messed up kit sad and people wonder why some people jus end up missing......maybe someone beat you to the punch and has him locked up in there basement and beat him daily with an old timing belt

    That sucks man. I wish you the best.

    This seems to be one of those times when a Total Chaos or Camburg kit at an increased cost looks a lot better. I hope that others learn from this and dont keep buying what is the best deal at the time.

    I hope you get your money back and they make Nate pay your attorney fees too. Sorry for your troubles dude, I thought Nate would at least try to make an attempt.
