    I decided to email them and linked this thread asking to explain himself and rectify this with you.

    I hope this works out for you in the end, if not, i'd imagine he won't be in business much longer treating customers like that.

    Definitely contact the BBB and file a complaint...maybe even talk to a lawyer.

    finally talked to him, he is getting me my money back, I guess he hasn't been around work for a while due to some pretty serious family health issues.

    That's great! Too bad it took a year to do so. When that GB was going on I was really tempted to get in on it to save a few bucks but after seeing complaints on here I'm really glad I didn't. I went to ECGS instead...

    Agreed this GB was a disaster. I also had mine installed by him because I was local. Serious mistake.

    Did they fail prematurely? Or did it just cost out the ass? I was looking at getting some hydraulic bumps through him as a trade off since getting paid back was taking forever. But his prices were almost dould the average sale price from anywhere including local places.
