Yeah I'm not sure how it is going to look. I would have rather changed my exhaust. But we will see and its your truck.


Oh btw... Are they on yet? Beard had his on with 10 seconds after painting them.

Glad you got most everything! I will be shipping your additional items tomorrow if I have them all in the shop in the morning, if not Thursday morning for sure. Obviously I need to figure out how to strap these up better.

Thanks Zach! The tape was almost gone from being beat around so much, but the sliders were unharmed.

Maybe use metal strapping like they use for holding units of lumber together. They also make plastic stuff thats a little cheaper. Looks like zip ties and boxing tape, aren't up to UPS's strength in there package handling abilities...

Are you already taking names and creating a waiting list for new orders? Or will it be a first come first serve basis once you offer more for sale?

It seems UPS and FedEx suck @ss when having to deliver something that has weight to it, when I sent "martiangod" my Warn grill guard and winch plate the box was destroyed and had been taped up with what looked like a complete roll, and the center bar was missing as well.

I like my exhaust how it is so I'm not worried about it. I think it'll look alright.

Mine may be painted, but UPS lost everything but the sliders themselves on mine, all the tubes and plates.

Doesn't Suprise me that UPS lost some of the stuff, My dad used to work at the freight docks, I heard so many stories about how stuff got loaded, damaged.
