    As I suspected, mine has gone into the great USPS Hole of Horrors. No update on location since it departed Portland on the 28th. It was supposed to be arriving "On Time", today, as of last night when I went to bed. This morning? Status has updated to "In Transit, Arriving Late" and still no location update.

    Been out for a while doing holiday things. Nice to see this thread has moved along a lot. I see the same issues though. Good to know not much has changed just like the shipping label awaiting USPS

    Reading up on all these clipnut issues.
    Would a rivnut be a better option?
    Cause I have a lot left over.

    I sent a priority package from Scranton to Newark, NJ. 3 weeks and went through Connecticut where it sat for weeks. Ugh.

    Sorry, I was off TW a while and catching up on the sagas. Didn't read the entire post.
    Looks like it came from factory. I've got to say KT did a good job.

    It is alright. The bolt covers look cheap and don't fit well.

    IMHO, it is worth $100, max. Not an OEM equivalent quality kit or value.

    Ah. The guy that skips to the end and wonders why Malvolio is bent out of shape.

    Texture is only skin deep, bud. Don’t marry for looks alone. You’ll get stood up at the thirteen-month altar.

    That's exactly what KTJO4x4 did also.

    Step 2: Pre-Order Heaven (crowdsourcing without the benes)
    Step 3: ??
    Step 4: Profit!

    I have a delivery notice that mine have finally arrived in mailbox. Of course I’m at work so I don’t know if I got correct covers or not but you might want to start a color option on swap also instead of just 2 upper or 2 lower. If I remember correctly some have black handles and some of us (like me) ordered grey handles. If this was added, sorry cause I didn’t see it.
