You should have herd what was coming out of my mouth when I opened the box then I got no responce when I sent the pic's to you . This was about a year ago I moved on in that time .
Thank you for the offer to replace them but I went another way

KidRock171 Makes sense. Crafty work sir. I can't wait to get my hands on yalls arms, I've been eyeing them for a while.
12-13-2011 04:41 PM
dave@rokmen It's is a little more simplified and reliable this way - and the look is more utilitarian which is more of what we were shooting for visually.
12-13-2011 02:12 PM
KidRock171 was there a specific reason y'all designed it with a two handle operation instead of single pull like a truck tailgate?
12-13-2011 11:12 AM
dave@rokmen Thanks kidRock - The tailgate you see in the picture is actualy mounted on Niblet. Niblet is owned by Rokmen(aka both Jeff and I). I've been daily driving Niblet since the summer, the tailgate has been in the works for a while and just recently went on permanantly a few weeks ago.

There is not a ton more to say about it than what is on the website. Do you have any specific questions I can help with?

Jeff loves it because of the clean lines and the old school look - while I'm completely geeked out by the simple slam shut action. The storage compartment is very useful - The main thing we are always in the back of the jeeps for when offroad is Recovery straps and related gear. So that's what we keep in it. It's soooo much more conveinant than fumbling around with bags and boxes of gear strapped in the back. Just drop the tailgate, open the door and everything is right in front of you like looking in a tool drawer.

If you want to see more of Niblet, you can see the full build in our picture gallery:

Dave, any extra comments on the awesome tailgate you guys designed. Have you installed it on one of your rigs yet?
12-12-2011 12:19 PM
dave@rokmen Unfortunately this is the first time we are seeing these.

I can absolutely assure anyone seeing this, and the purchaser that arms absolutely do not go out of here like that. We are pretty meticulous about what we do here, down the custom boxing and foam inserts our control arms are shipped in. We would never send out anything that looked like that. We have absolutley nothing to gain by sending something out like that.

Not to take away from the customer - but those look 100% purposely beat up,scraped on the side of a bench, or gone after with a potato peeler and the greese zerks purposely knocked off. Which must have occured between us and the receiver. There have been an instance or two where packages have been opened in the past, but never has we seen one opened, the product purposely dammaged, and then sent on.

Regardless, there is no way we would have let that go without exchanging them.

Given this is the first time seeing this, we will still exchange them. Give us a call so we can look up the order and get you a call tag.

KidRock171 You really should have pressed the issue, those are really banged up and there's no reason you shouldn't have gotten a fresh set.
12-11-2011 10:00 PM
IndyJeepMan I agree those are beat up, but those look like tooling marks, not wheeling scratches. And the grease fittings could have been beaten up by shipping.

No doubt im sorry for your bad experience with them. I have had nothing but good.

Ive called to order something from Dave, to sit there and talk to him about questions I have about products and Jeeps for over an hour in the middle of the day.

With any company there will always be an unsatisfied customer....just look at all the rave reviews that Rokmen gets compared to this ONE.

I have their front bumper, their corner armor, and this tailgate on order and will be getting the majority of my parts for the rest of my upgrades from them...sliders, arms, etc...
I agree with ^

Every company has problems, even Currie, Savvy and everyone else.

Dont sway your opinion if you havent seen their products or talked to them. I think they are a pretty great shop. To the guy that had beat up arms...

Got any pictures?

Wow, that sucks, I have never bought anything from rokmen but I thought they had a good reputation. Did they take the arms back?

solman It looks nice but for $450 you would think they could have come up with a single latch handle instead of one on each side, and a pair of hinges that dont look like they were bought at a local hardware store.

icp1327 Hey Frankenstein was a good guy so I am sure your lift will be sweet!
12-08-2011 11:49 PM
KidRock171 8 Rokmen arms for my jeep as soon as I got a grand to blow. That plus the new front springs and my frankenlift will be complete. For now.

This one incorporates some pretty sweet features. The 'slam-shut' latches are a plus, but the storage compartment is the money.

Drop Down Aluminum Tailgate w/Storage Compartment#









For a fair comparison, the PSC tailgate is $370, but is basically just an aluminum shell with a more involved latch system (not a good thing).

jeff316 That thing looks awesome, my tailgate hinges are rusted and the tailgate bounces, super annoying. I might just save up for this instead!
