    :facepalm: Apparently ToyTec sent the wrong shocks. They were apparently boxed incorrectly. :facepalm: That's pretty much been my day. :sadviolin:

    They will or they might find themselves in the Florida Everglades naked and with a bunch of ribeye stakes tied to them... or more likely a nasty letter from me.

    Bet they'd cut you a deal, like 50% off and they eat shipping.

    Good thing I've never ordered from them. If they don't make a concession for fucking over a customer than I'm not giving them my business. I'll also start trashing them at every possible opportunity.

    Well they didn't "fuck me over". It's an honest mistake to have a box mislabeled since they probably don't want to open it so that the customer gets a nice sealed box. But I agree that they should eat the shipping cost for overnight or at least PDQ shipping since it was a pretty big ass mistake. With my suspension all apart it would be nice to hear "yea we'll have it there by friday". Otherwise that's a pretty bad business attitude. I have to deal with this kind of stuff all the time for work so I know it's no fun being on their end either.

    I know shit happens, understandable. But my truck is my DD, if I pull it apart to do an install and they sent me the wrong stuff they fucked me.

    You're not asking them to make you a five course dinner, just put in the right parts and get them to you. Plus, they pocket some cash from the transaction. It's kinda their job.

    I refer you to my original statement, you've been fucked.

    Little update: The stock suspension is back on with the stock tiers and wheels. Gonna have to wait until next week for the shocks and stuff. Glad there are no wheeling trips... but there is a car show this weekend at the Simsbury airport.

    Yea... I was really disappointed my lift and new tires didn't get to be put on this week. Once they do I'm gonna start saving for some skid plates. Then I'm gonna have to take a break from modding the truck for a while. :(

    So the story continues with ToyTec... They apparently couldn't get their shit tougher and get the right parts to the shop. So an order was placed for a Rancho lift with new upper control arms :))) and put on. It works great despite the rear lift being blocks. Thus the rear end rides a bit hard but it's better than a poke in the eye. The tires are still grinding on the inside of the wheel well so I guess a CMC and some trimming are in my future. I'll need some help though who's up for it? I pay in beer and/or liquor. :D

    Here's what was done with the rear license plate to light it at night. Two LEDs were recessed into the bumper. It looks clean and awesome.

    [​IMG]

    Here's all the other crap that came off my truck. Which I am selling shocks (fronts with the springs), upper control arms, U-bolts and other stuff. Not selling the wheels so I can mount some winter tires on them.
