I don't want to hand your ass to you, I want people to know what happed. We definitely made some mistakes and did some things that was probably were not a good idea. A lot of it was a personality conflict, we do well on the Pirate board because it fits who we are and what we do, it is a totally different vibe and atmosphere than over t there on project-jk, Shaffer and a few other companies have had similar problems. Here is the short version:
i really appreciate your answer, you are right Eddie will not talk about it.
So no-one really knows what is going. Your side really clears it up
i like your products a lot and its a shame that he will not let us talk about it on his forum
Definitely the high-road explanation about what happened. Very accurate without fingering some of the questionable things Eddie did.I don't want to hand your ass to you, I want people to know what happed.

Here is the short version:
-We meet Eddie and he takes pictures of our JK products in Moab at EJS, Eddie solicits us to advertise on his website. We had already been watching his website and wanted to advertise when we had products ready.
-July/August-We are ready to start advertising and contact Eddie about advertising, he had some hesitations about it because he did not want to have competition to Northridge, 4wd hardware and other resellers already on his website. We wanted to be there as a manufacturer not a reseller, so he agrees. All of a sudden he backs out, basically Full-Traction did not want him to let us on the board.
-We start running magazine adds and made the mistake of using one of the photos of our JK from his website, Eddie gets pissed about it, we then pay Eddie for the use of the photo and change the magazine ad.
-not being allowed to be a paying advertiser, our posts were edited and eventually banned from the board, we had a few anonymous user names to answer questions people had about our products that were banned as well when Eddie figured it all out.
-Any one who posts about our products on his website gets the response from Eddie about what a crooked, dishonest business we run and to not buy anything from us.
It is a week at SEMA, a week in Baja and then Thanksgiving. After that it is back to business, we have been working on getting our suspension parts done which will be very shortly, then bumpers.Is posting here taking time away from bumper designing/building? Particularly, the rear bumper with tire carrier? :bounce:
Thanks for the interest, the track bar brackets and draglink are finished, just waiting to package them up and write instructions so they should be available soon.Thanks for sharing, Goat. Not that it's really any of our business.
I like the new rear bumper and sliders. Does it have to have the holes in the rear bumper? What are they for, ventilation?
I am extremely interested in availablity dates for your Front Track Bar Bracket and High Steer Draglink Flip Kit. Your site says taking preorders for Nov. 12. I love the reinforcement it gives to the factory mount and I need to level the track bar and drag link. Does the Stabilizer relocation bracket come with it?
