I ordered both from Jacob, the Coil-Over Setup and the Struts (RCD Supports).
Some of the parts were sent for powder coating so there may be a delay there.
But nothing has arrived here so we are all waiting... patiently looking at pretty woman holding coil-over shocks; by the way NICE !

Well, she's holding the coilover, and wearing the shirt, but deep in her eyes I see her thinking" WTF am I holding this for?"

Has anyone even heard from Jacob in awhile?

I don't want to keep bringing this up... but I paid him back on 8/14 with him saying it would take a week or 2 to get everything cut, welded up, and sent out.

I realize things got a lot more complicated as he started making Bars for people as well as taking Powder Coating orders. But it's been almost 2 months now and still no one has gotten anything.

I understand fully how things take time to do right. Trust me. So if the answer is simply, it's just taking way more time to get out, that's fine. I'd be more then happy knowing that the timeframe was simply way underestimated and I wasn't going to get the brackets until Christmas. But I keep hearing, "Yeah, I'll have them shipped out next week." Next week comes and no one has brackets.

Is anyone else worried?

p.s.- i wont be on here for the next couple days so if yall have any questions or need anything, text me(for those that have my number) or just email me [email protected].
So has anyone gotten anything yet? I really really don't want to be "that guy" as Jacob seems like a good guy. Stepping out like this to make brackets for a mod that a lot of people with Rangers want to do is great. I appreciate his effort for sure. But I just want to know for sure want the story is and if anyone that has ordered has received them yet.

I feel that the delay is only an underestimated time situation.
He is young and it is easy to get over enthusiastic about something this good and going to help so many people.

I think once he gets back and gets his stuff together the Coil-Over Brkt job will come together also.

I for one have no problem waiting for Jacob.

ltr,

ltr,
I agree 100%. Right now, I'm not worried. I just would simply rather hear "It's going to be another 6 weeks before I can this done. Stuff is way too crazy right now, and I just don't have time" than hear it'll get shipped out every week without ever seeing anything.

Like I said, I think Jake seems like a stand-up guy so far. It takes guts to take on something like this given he's not a 4x4 vendor, so I fully understand any setbacks and delays that have probably come up. Hell look at me. I've had 2 axles with all the parts in my garage for the better part of a year and half now, but I'm still not even half done assembling them.

I don't think he has computer access right now for some reason and thats why he hasn't posted up in a while. I'm sure Shane or Matt could get a hold of him via phone though
