    4WheelParts SUCK A88! I Just finally got a chance to check out my rig this last weekend to see if everything that got installed on my rig works after spending about $3000.00 on tires,lift,xfrcase,gears&lockers and various other parts..............well today I find a part lying behind the Front locker unit under the pinion, it chewed up the ring gear a bit..........apparently its a peice from the locker and now they want to screw me out of the price of the locker til detriot makes their mind up and the want to charge me aty least $450.00 to R&R the D@mn thing! I've got less than 50 miles on it even though the rig sat in my garage for 1-1/2 yrs gettin body work done! So I decided to have another shop do the job! I think that the whole job should be warranteed.........I understand that if I had excessive miles on the thing or had driven my rig alot that I should pay for something like partial labor? But 50 FIFTY! 50 miles........That really SUCK A88! I will never do business with 4WheelParts again! I shall make my purchases elsewhere and learn more about the installation of Ring & Pinions so that I can do it myself!
    Thanx for letting me vent my frustrations! /forums/images/icons/smirk.gif
