UPS guy came by yesterday with 2 packages!!! [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] One with no duty or taxes, the other with a whopping $44.29 CDN! Nice.... [img]images/graemlins/mad.gif[/img]
Anyway, here's a pic:
The shackles are the J-shackles from TT. I have the shackle stops already. For these, I paid Mr.UPS $44.29 CDN when they only cost me $60-something USD to buy. Add the cost of shipping itself..... and you can see why this was the LAST package I ever order using UPS or FedEx. I am more than happy with TT, as they are one of the few vendors out there that still call you back! In fact, Brent called me back without me even having to ask. Customer service at its best. But in any case, some vendors do still ship via USPS and I'll have to go through them from now on. I can't afford UPS anymore. [img]images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]
The cool looking adapters you see there are from High Angle Driveline. Jesse Jaynes (the owner) is one of the most stand-up guys I have EVER met. I've returned a couple things to him that were non-return items and he was very understanding. Unfortunately, there was a mix up on my end, and the wrong flanges were ordered. He took them back at HIS expense, and is even paying the duty/taxes I had to pay to get them in the first place. AND he is paying for the duty/taxes on these new flanges. Which there shouldn't be any. He sent these via UPS and ate the cost himself. Now THAT is service. BTW, these flanges are for the front/rear outputs of my Dana 300 transfer case and will allow me to bolt up a <nobr>Toyota
</nobr> front CV shaft [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] Yes......nice..... [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] If you want them, order now. They take 2 weeks min. to get done. He is extremely busy.
Aside from these 2 great vendors, I want to also mention Novak Conversions and Roadless Gear. Novak Conversions have also been one of the BEST guys I have dealt with. OK, so they are a mainly <nobr>Jeep
</nobr> vendor but they have done stuff for me that I know no others would. Returns, partial buys, you name it. No trouble. For example, I placed an order for my Dana 300 input shaft on a Monday and had it come on that same Thursday via USPS!!!! Awesome. [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
Roadless Gear is also another great source for parts. I tried contacting Sky Manufacturing via phone and e-mail and never ONCE got a call back. So, I just called up Roadless and ordered their parts through them. Easy, one shot deal. Thanks Figmo.
The last parts there are the shock towers. They are the Ford F-250 type everyone uses, part # E5TZ 18183 A. I've seen some of the prices guys are selling them for! [img]images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img] I paid $33 CDN for the pair, FROM THE DEALER! The guy behind the parts counter was also an off-roader and gave me a deal. List price was $19.70 CDN plus tax.
Now, back to work [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
