    I know there are a few people both on here and on XR-U that have actually received their boxes and the quality is top notch, but the alarming amount of people who paid this guy and dealt with his sob stories about his motor blowing/shop roof leaking water/waiting on a check from the landlord etc. Just getting out of hand. I am not a very active member over here, but wanted to help out fellow Tacoma owners and tell them to be cautious with this guy.

    there have been a few threads about this over on www.xr-underground.com this one is the most recent

    http://www.xr-underground.com/forum/showthread.php?t=47354&page=4

    I find it hard to believe that even though he was paid for the damaged boxes, and still has the 1200+ dollars floating around from members on XRU that he cant even have the decency to either refund or even return a damn PM to some of these guys.

    To Clarify, I never purchased anything from this guy, nor do I ever plan to, just wanted to put the word out there for everyone to be careful.

    Edit: forgot to add, he is active on this site and his FB every damn day for the most part, but seems to avoid XRU like the plague.

    Okay first and foremost why don't you call me i posted my phone number and second of all what's happened on xru I'm trying to fix and keep it there. I have not tried to advertise until I get this mess straightened out.

    And I am legit, memario bought headers and got him out to him asap and hooked him up on shipping costs.

    Why don't you post a thread about all the good stuff I've done?????

    I didn't get $1200 I only got the cost of the box, materials cost so if you don't know don't talk out of your ass before you know 100% your right....

    And Facebook is different.... It's a social networking.... I bet everyone is more active on FB than here. Sorry I actually have friends and stay social...

    ready the very first line of the post. I said you do top notch work and I know people have gotten some of your products. But you have been more then shady on the other forums, you cant deny it.

    I'll post over here what I did over there.

    why am I not posting about all the good you have done? Because you could do killer for years on end, have some personal issues, not handle them properly, and thats what sticks out, thats what gets remembered, you have to make it right, which you have yet to do, or from the people I know who you have had their hard earned dollars since as early as September and not be in contact with them.

    yes you posted your number, people posted they texted you, pm'd you, etc with no reply. You promised everyone to get back to them this week, yet you didnt post up until almost midnight?

    you charge 300 dollars for a box yes? off the top of my head I can think of 5 people that have paid you for a box and do not have a box.

    You are running a business, be a professional about it. Pissed off customers is something you will have to deal with. Fix the problem and put it behind you.

    That's one line, ok. And did you not know everything that happened besides my motor? Nope so instead of judging ppl walk in their shoes before you speak.

    Do you not see I help ppl out with boxes?

    Do you see that I get 36x50 vinyl wrap for 45 bucks I beat 3m website by half

    Do you not see that I help ppl out with discounts on audio equipment since I work for onlinecarstereo.com

    I was going to start to offer satoshi grilles, no offense to HomerTaco but i can beat your price nearly by half....

    That's only one line you put make a whole thread thanking me on ALL the things I help the community. Instead on bashing on one issue which I'm trying to work out quickly and issues happened to me and must deal with as well... I'm tying my best here.

    I meet Chuy once and was pretty normal guy. Do you know how hard it is to run a business on the side especially if you're going to school? He is doing his best as he stated. I have read post that are on XRU. With time, things will go well. Patience is key.

    Reasons why he can be on facebook more than the forums because there is an app for it. It's quicker to check FB app than it is for website forums

    you sell stuff....that makes you a vendor, which brings me to a question for a moderator shouldn't you be paying fees?

    lol if FB is more important you should not be running a business of any kind.

    wow is all i can say to this

    and vendor fees
