Alright Im not bashing any products/company names..yet...
But I have a issue.
So while I was at EJS this year, I was talking to the RE rep. They were explaining to me their new skid plates. Seemed like pretty decent skids to me. They are steel and alittle heavy but, didn't want to piss the wife off more, I already spent some coin up there but I went ahead and pulled the trigger on some skid plates from 4WP, by RE. Skid plates showed up few days after getting back from Moab. Well I went to install them the following week, all of them went on no issues EXCEPT the engine skid plate. So basically its been taking me a while to fit this thing on my rig, from the get go I had fitment issues on the engine skid plate. I email RE they got back to me...slowly..
So basically the guy from RE explains some ways on the fitment, or try this.. or try that.. Ok took his advice threw it on, didn't like how the tab on this thing fit on the oil pan, Took it all and decided enough was enough went to bolt everything back and come to find out one of the oil pan bolts got stripped out half way
after a few thousand cuss words and a confused wife I call RE today. Explain the situation which they have known about from our emails...
SO COME TO FUCKING FIND OUT the tab on the skid plate that bolts to the oil pan is welded on BACKWARDS. Now Im stuck with a useless skid plate, stripped out oil pan bolt, And I did not force anything putting it on, I'm mechanically inclined and am well aware its aluminum. And ZERO HELP from RE, Oh and after talking to them today, They currently don't have any new oil pan skids that are correctly made ready to ship.
What do you guys think I should do, before I go APE SHIT.
