got jacked!

i ordered a kit online and to say the least it has been nothin but problems!! angry The fitment is horrible! My shop said they could make it fit... but for the extra cash it would cost i could get any kit on the market and still have some to burn! So, now i cant return it... and i'm out the 650$ or so i paid for it! So now, i will either have to sell it to someone who knows how to do it themselves or just let it sit there; and either way i'm out even more money cause i'm gonna have to still get either a new stock bumper or another kit! angry

My bodyshop is great thumbsup ... the kit and the place i ordered it from are the problem! angry worst products and customer service i have ever seen in my life..

Tough lesson learned. Buy authentic & it should fit the first time. Or be close enough that it won't cost much to make it fit perfect.

Good luck with everything rice

Yeah sorry to hear that happened, but it coulda been worse which is not getting anything at all. Anyhow, next body kit you purchase, I suggest you come here first and ask everyone about the place your buying it from and the cost. This way, we could help you avoid this problem again!

Good luck!

Man I saw Dallas (I live near Dallas) in your name and thought you were gonna say you got carjacked! Whew cause my Celi gets LOTS of attention...sometime too much.

Anyway, I've bot parts that everyone says fits perfect only to find out they needed lots of fit and finish to truly be perfect. I don't think a lot of people really mean perfect or have as high expectations as I do. My body guy does make it perfect...so expect some work w/ just about anything.

nice link, Isaac thumbsup

but yea, that sucks--you can't guarantee anything with replicas. Authentic kits may cost a lil more, but it'll run you cheaper in the long run
