WTF?!?!?!? If you want something done right... do it yourself!

I have had a on going problem with my air vents. They blow out of the defrost all the time. The place that HELPED me do my body lift, did about %50 of the labor. After a couple of days my ac/heat started only blowing through the defrost vent on top of the dash.... So I took it in and they said "Oh, A vacuum line came unplugged" well 1 year later it starts doing it again. I pull the gap guard, splash guard and come to find out the Jacka$$ that put the gap guards on my truck drilled a F*ing hole in my AC/Heat vacuum control module (looks like a softball with two hoses hooked up to it) and put glue in it to seal it up!!!!!! Its on the passenger side splash guard and after working with it for 3 hours it is almost sealed. I have to find the part number and go get a new one tomorrow. I have been without vent A/C for 3 months and I'm pissed. There is a 1/4 inch hole in it filled with glue... that ***** is getting an earful tomorrow... now I remember why I do my own work. GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR. Ill post pics of this BS tomorrow... Im so tired and cranky... seriously guys. Think before you drill.

See, Heres the problem. Instead of waisting my time blaming them, Ill just replace the part and pull the HUGE 4Wheelconcepts decal off my truck... its won three shows and gets countless comments. its there loss. I asked them to make it right and they said "Well you probly did it wheeling..." Problem is I dont wheel this truck that much. oh well. Next time they need something from my jewelry store... price goes back to retail

Good Move, hit them where it hurts the most word of mouth, the best and worst advertisement. I have never poked a perfect drill bit size hole through anything while wheeling but ok. Good luck fixing it tomarow.

Wow that's screwed up.


Back before I did much of the work myself, I had my dad's friend's son install a DJM 4/5 on my 98. He's certified and runs his own shop, yada yada yada.
I specified that he needs to install the camber kit when he installs the drop kit, and also to align the front end enough for me to drive it home. Not only did he not install the kit, but he didnt align the front end either. Then he tried to charge me $800 for the install LOL.

Then a few months later I wonder why the sway bar links were at such a bad angle. He had taken the sway bar off, turned it upside down, and reinstalled it upside down. There were a few other questionable things that he did., that i dont remember off hand.

Moral of the story, take it to a reputable shop, or do it yourself.

I've never had anything installed for me. I prefer to be responsible even if that means i'm going to Napa to buy a 150$ part.
