    I placed an order for a 14 bolt cover 2 months ago exactly with Mad4wd. they completely dropped the ball. Grant, the owner of rockcrusher diffs is no longer associated with them. I had to find this out on Pirate.

    I got his number and called him direct. Mad4wd lied to me about how many orders have been placed. they said I was one of 400 people waiting on the 14 bolt cover. Grant tells me there are 25 orders that are pending production.

    Here's the problem and how you guys can help. He isn't going to make the covers until he has at least 50 orders. He makes batches of 60, 44, 30, 35 covers 1000 at a time. somewhere in the 35,000 members on here there has to be 25-30 people who want a strong cover thats cheap for their 14 bolt.

    I get the feeling no one orders one because they aren't available right away.

    Email him directly at Grant@rockcrusherdiffs.com and tell him you want a 14 bolt cover. He was unaware until I spoke with him on the phone today that there was as many chevy fans as there are. show him the power of CK5.

    its gettin better all ready. here is what he sent me.


    Hi Chas,
    Thank you for your e-mail, 1: do you think I should register on the forum? 2: what do you think about the idea of doing a special for members of the coloradok5 of a once off special of $70 including shipping anywhere in the U.S . Normal retail will be $87.00 + shipping which would be at least $17.00 to $18.00 because of the weight and the size of the cover.Look forward to your response.

    Kind Regards

    We all love a discount.

    and from what I have gathered Mad4wd is mostly to blame. thye are no longer invovled with rockcrusher. Grant has gone out on his own.

    I called Mad4wd once and got Paul, the welder. he couldn't stop cussing on the phone long enough to listen to what I was saying. everytime I call there I get someone else and none of them no what the others are doing. Get a secretary and put someone in charge.

    I ordered one from Mad already, back on Jan 5th, and still waiting (getting close to 4 months now). I did have some problems with Mad, other than waiting or the 14's cover. They over-charged me for shipping.. but finally credited it back.

    It would be nice to get these things made, and into the waiting hands of those who want them. I'm just so jaded about my dealings with Mad, and now the 4 month wait with no word.. that I'm about ready to sell my unused 60, and find or make a different pair of covers.

    The 60's cover does seem well made. Since I don't attack things like a comp buggy, it should probably suit my needs. It looks/feels plenty beefy to me. I wouldn't mid getting the 14's.

    Rockcrusher 14 Bolt Diff Covers

    This is Grant from Rockcrusher Diffs. First I would like to say thanks for your support so far with the cover orders. I just wanted to clear a few things up for everyone. Mad4wd is no longer responsible and never really were for what has happened. We have been doing our best to get all the Diff Cover orders taken care of as soon as possible.

    When making a product like this is a must to have a large quantity order to make it worth doing. When we make the Dana covers, we make anywhere from 500 to 1000 at a time. What we need to do is get some more orders together before it is worth actually making the 14 Bolt covers.

    The patterns and tooling is already to go all we need to do is turn the covers on once we have enough orders to do a small run. In all honesty there will not be much money to be made on the covers at first but that is ok with us because we need to get the product out to our loyal customers as soon as possible.

    These covers are not made from just ordinary cast iron, they are actually 100% Australian Ductile Iron and are heat treated to add even more strength. This combination makes for an unbreakable diff cover. We have yet to have a return for a damaged cover in 7 years. Every cover will come with a no questions asked LIFETIME WARRANTY.

    Well how many orders do you need and how many do you already have? I'll be building my 14bff as soon as my D44 is finished, so a month wait will be no big deal. If you were serious about the $70 including shipping and everything I'll place my order Friday when I get paid.

    Thanks for the input, Grant. So far I'm impressed with the 60's RC cover. Like I said, it looks plenty beefy, and well made. Like you said too, ductile steel is pretty tough stuff.

    Be sure to keep us posted as things progress. I think th eworst thing, is no info at all, and is what will often cause people to move on. So, any input you might be able to give from time to time will be well received.

    Welcome to CK5 :thumb:

    Rockcrusher 14 Bolt design

    Dear members thank you for your support for our product firstly to the ck5 member who spoke with me on the phone who I was short with I sincerely apologise that is not me normally I guess you just caught me on a wrong day but still that is no excuse.
    To the members who are wondering what the 14 bolt is going to look like, our designs on our differential covers are all the same just imagine a 60 cover on steroids, same rockcrusher logo , same fin design, filler plug standard, all hardware standard and of course made from 100% australian ductile iron and heat treated for extra strength. OF COURSE LIFE TIME WARRENTY!
    To the other ck5 member asking how many orders do we need to start a production run, we need the minimum of 150 , we have 30 orders standing now. we will do a special pricing for members of this forum of $70 per cover including shipping to all 48 states.
    Regards

    Grant

    Since I have an order in (placed Jan 5 or so) does my price through Mad still stand on my cover?

    No we will honor the $70 delivered price, we were just using Mad4wd's web page until our own new rockcrusher page was up and running. please send me an e-mail with your name so I can adjust the price in my system. grant@rockcrusherdiffs.com
