Shocks aren't part of the kit right? If that's right then you actually don't have any of your FT kit then. Right? Shocks were ordered separate?

They were ordered from quadratec. It even says quadratec on the box. I'm guessing different department..

quadratec could be really good at times or be a pain in the ass at times. when I ordered my winch n bumper n winch plate the winch came the next day the bumper was back ordered 2 weeks and the winch plate came in about 10 days... now when ever I call I make sure to ask them if everything will ship out the same day and what not

Scout, northridge is about the same price 623 but its 2 weeks backordered.

580 + 44 shipping.. 624 at quadratec and they should have it now...

If you ever have a problem with FT they won't be any help to you. The only bad things I've ever heard about FT is their customer service. David @ Northridge doesn't seem to have the same problems that Joe Public has.

I say order it from Northridge and wait. It'll be worth it in the long run.

It comes fast if it comes from them but some bigger stuff they will ship right from the maker and it will take a little while.

Guess I've been lucky. I've spent about $1500 with em in the 3 weeks I've had this thing already. Longest I waited was about 4 days.

I'd go with rough country and buy the upgrade of the shocks. My fainces father has the kit with basic shocks that came with kit and i got the step above and you can actually tell the difference id say get the kit sell the shocks by better shocks

Sweet. Glad to see you got it finally. I've called 4 placed today and NOBODY has the FT lift. Northridge said they have 50 currently on back order and they have no idea when, or how many they'll be getting. Quadratec and 4WD both said basically the same thing. Damnit!

Oh, I see. Couple more days though! Not bad. I'm looking at 6-8 weeks - and that's just a "maybe". They all have said it's a supply problem from FT and there is no telling when they'll be available. Damnit!

Sucks dude. Sorry to hear that. Way to take one for the team. You've taught us all a good lesson. Still sucks for you though. Keep us posted.

well guys i've decided.. if my lift kit dont ship on the 30th AS I WAS TOLD TO BY QUADRATEC i'll be talking to them about canceling my kit. It's over 1 full month now. I still don't have a lift kit. I've had it with broken promises and excuses. First off i was lied to and told to that my lift will ship by friday that same week, friday came and i got nuthing, now a month later still nuthing but lies and excuses. They shipped me the shocks only and i'm pretty sure they will try to make me pay for shipping them back but i will try to fight that. We will see what happens on the 30th.

Yeah, it's one thing if they would have just said up front that it would take this long. I had to send something back to them (POS product) once before and had to pay shipping. I argued for quite a while that they should pay shipping but they didn't really care. Sorry to hear bout all the delays. Where you gonna get it? Everybody is out of this specific FT lift. FYI, Northridge was supposed to get their shipment this week. David said they have everything in stock but are just waiting on the coils from FT.

i dont think i'm going w/ ft because i've heard problems with sagging.. i'll possibly get a RC kit and with the extra money get a front track bar seperate.. We will see what happens man... thats complete bs.. why would i have to pay for shipping if they lied to me just so i can order it? also it says they will not charge my card untill everything is in the box shipped.. well its not. Perhaps them knowing my experience is all over the forum might make them feel better.

Don't get the RC kit. The FT kit is worth waiting for over the RC kit.
