I will be but for now I am just focusing on the front as that is the "difficult" part. They will be 4'' mcneil flat top fenders though

Damn that sucks. I got lucky with mine, got the last set at the time. I think they were for someone else but I needed them right away and the other guy said he'd wait. The steering kits can be a big wait too

Wow that sounds like some terrible customer service... you'd think for the cash that you have to shell out for that stuff they'd be a little more helpful!

Ouch...crappy deal. I had a VW head porter like that in California once. Great product/work if you could get it...but a complete pain in the *** during the in between.

Hope you get your stuff...soon

Don't you have the superlift on? Or are you waiting to do it all at once?

i hope you do get your kit soon but i doubt it. i, along with a couple other guys, ordered the kit from aaron and it took 3-4 months to get the kit. we got parts here and there but i was happy to just get the kit.

what are you doing for axles? i know he owns a friend of mine axles since dec of last yr. i hope you have better luck then us. we are going to do a group but from another company that is getting them from RCV. RCV is a great company that warranties their axles for life which is a big plus.
