Wow... what to say... I called them for a panhead bushing...

And all I can say is I have never been treated so poorly, so bad, so disrespected my life by an aftermarket automotive manufacture.

A little on my background... Cars and Jeeps are my and my sons hobbies, We have our own lifts, chassis dyno, tigs, miss, plasma cutters and about every tool known to man,,,, we race the Baja 500 and 1000, with buggies we have built, and road race 6 corvettes.. We fabricate many of our own things including bumpers, roll cages and 4 link suspensions just to name a few,,,, its not our job, but we are hard into it. I did the first write ups and testing for Sprintex Superchargers and have S/N 2 and 4 superchargers..

Anyway,,, I call Full-Traction Suspension to order a bushing that went prematurely bad in one of there lift kits... Did not ask for anything free... just ask for the bushings.. guy says he will have someone call me back and the order will go out today, 9:30........Come 11 I call again,,, same thing
(i am trying to make shipping by 2pm) call again at 1:30, same response..
4:00 rolls around,,, I call again, this time asking why my other 3 calls were not returned as I wanted to make shipping, he said "I HAVE NOT TALKED TO YOU, YOU GOT ME NOW!!.. WHAT DO YOU WANT?!?" wow.. great way to start out...I explain politely (I teach at a public high school, Computer graphics, so I do know how to hold my temper and be nice even when it does not go both ways.. ) Well.. ok, So he does not care or wants to hear about my past attempts in the day to order this part and what was told to me... ok.. well will move forward... I ask for the panhard bushing, he says "What?? I KNOW EVERYTHING AND THAT IS NOT WHAT YOU CALL IT!"... ok,,, I ask, why are you so hostile to me? he says you are being PASSIVE AGGRESSIVE... like WTF I'm thinking.... WANT YOUR PART?!? GIVE ME YOUR DAME CREDIT CARD NUMBER... I did, need the part, swallow my pride and suck up.. figure I would just call back later and talk to a manager about the ordeal.(BTW, he hung up on me when the order was completed). I call back, and get him again.. I ask for a supervisor, he says he is one,, i ask for a manager, he says he is the manager... I ask for his boss, he says NO! YOU GOT WHAT YOU WANT, SO WHAT IS YOUR PROBLEM NOW?!?!? complete loss for words.. I say what I want is an apology for your attitude.. he says no way, never going to happen, hangs up on me again. ok... wow...

I call Morris 4X4 where i got the lift from and talked to management there and told them my problem... they said, yes,, they are horrible people to work with, they treat everyone bad, and that is why we dropped them about 2 years ago...

Called the BBB.. they have an "F" rating... go figure...

So,,, just beware... this is n to they type of company you want to do business with...

Jesus, Paul. I don't generally have reading comprehension issues but trying to quickly make my way to the end of your rant was impossible. I'm glad that you don't teach grammatical skills at that public high-school or those pupils wouldn't stand a chance. You may have kept your cool in regards to this incredibly insignificant matter but it almost sounded as if you were getting worked into another tirade just writing that post!

So... although the "guy" ( certainly you could have posted his name but whatever) told you that they would ship that same day, he also said that someone would call you back? Why? You left out some information there it seems. Also... you were insistent that the bushings ship by 2pm that same day? Why would they need to accommodate that request? Before the end of the business day you say that you called several more times. Again... why? To confirm that they had shipped? Seems like there is more information that you are leaving out.

Anyway... I'm not going to try to dissect nor decipher this post in any more depth but I will say that anyone worth their salt in the off-road world, surely knows that Full Traction has been plagued with customer complaints over the years. Maybe you should have done your homework before choosing such a company... just a thought. Obviously some companies are much better than other companies regarding customer service but at the end of the day, if you've been otherwise generally happy with your Full Traction products, then this seems like quite a slam just because you didn't care for the attitude given to you by one employee in this one instance. For what it's worth, you come across as a complete asshole.

Moving this to DL as this has nothing to do with modified tech. Have a good day.

Well, I guess that is your opinion, and you are allowed to have it as I am mine...


Horrible company to work with... BBB agrees.... vendors agree.... and I am just trying to save someone else this disrespect that I have been put through..

I'm with Stub on this one. Maybe I drink his koolaid.

If you are so big into the offroad community and have so many years of service, how did you not know they were a piece of shit. Most people I have dealt with are pretty damn friendly until you fuck with something or become an asshat yourself.

If you have a business, you should never treat a customer poorly. NEVER!!! If they are willing to pay for a failed part, and it should be warranty, you warranty it, and should be happy that they called with the problem, instead of blowing it up to a full public spectacle before they ever contacted you.

Really, the first rule of customer service is that if a customer is contacting you with a problem, that is your first chance to make them loyal for life. All it takes is taking care of a situation before it becomes a problem.

Thats cool... but it was a Christmas present to my wife from my 2 older sons, about 2 years ago or so.. wifes jeep...
Mods my boys and I have done to the jeep besides this little life kit includes a Hemi 5.7 and Rock Slider retractable steps, and a home made bumper showed below, but I am sure you could have done much better... but its good enough for us:)
Also, if you enjoy being belittled by people you buy things from, well.. cool... but I do not. I used to own 5 retail stores, I owned a large communications company, and if I ever bought one of my people doing that they would no longer be employed by me. And on the flip side, I have had many belligerent people talking to me, and I understand its not cool, thus I was very polite to them, this was a one way road.

In need pictures/videos of said tools, garage, roll cages; corvettes, Baja 1000 race pictures, and anything else that proves you are/have/capable of doing - otherwise your word doesn't mean shit. By the way you describe yourself, there should be plenty of "the most interesting man in the world" memes floating around with your face on it, possibly even toting a bottle of *insert expensive drink here* and chilling on your yacht with titties everywhere...
