|krazyg||I've had bad luck also. Poor fit, not fit to Jeep, fit between the parts they provided, and they have total control of this|

|kylekae||I have some smittybilt stuff and don't like the quality. Metal is too thin. Only thing I like is the x20 winch which is good.|

|jeepjones||I find for the most part that you can get just about everything fabricated locally for around the same price as having to deal with some mail order company that couldn't give a flying fart about you. You usually end up with much higher quality parts as well.|

|Hoytgirl07||Sorry to hear about your problem. I guess I was one of the lucky ones cause I ordered the Smittybilt SRC rear bumper with tire carrier and it was here in a week. But I have had problems like this in the past but not smittybilt. I feel your pain.|

|kenb1023||I must say some of the stuff from Smittybilt is OK. I have two winches from them and they work fine. The first one was the XRC COMP 10. Nice winch does what I need it to do and the price was fare. That is why I went and got the Bumper, X2O * winch and the tow bar. Had I known how long it was going to take to get it all in I would have made other choices. As it is I can-x-ed the Tow Bar and got a Demco Commander. I just need to make adapters for it to hook on at the D rings. I have a local machine shop doing it right now. But like I have said before, no more Smittybilt for me. Unless it is free because that is what is worth.|

|Mossman||I'm glad to come across this thread. I ordered a couple of smittybuilt seatcovers through an online dealer, and I must say they are THE shoddiest product I have purchased in recent memory. One strap just came off in my hands, and one of the seats had two 'male' plastic connector clips. A third clip simply broke off, and the threads in the face of the seat are coming apart after less than a week. It's really unbelievably bad quality, but it just isn't worth my time to do anything about it except warn off others from this despicable manufacturer.|

I'll pay the premium for a USA-made product. In the end, it's cheaper to initially spend more.

|Md_rubi||I've had problems with many fabricators not shipping their products when I was told. Not to mention any names out in west coast it look them over a yr to get their products. In the past I vowed I'd never buy smittybuilt products but I have their front bumper and I'm very impressed with quality and service. Hope you get everything worked out and you might want to check with one of many vendors they have for inventory.|

Exactly whi I purchased my LoD rear bumper Made 100% in America and STRONG as a Sherman Tank!
|06-02-2012 06:41 AM|
People don't realize when they buy their Shiybilt bumpers and what-not that other countries don't meet the same quality standards or "strength standards" that USA-built parts do.
BTW, do you know of any wheels and lift kits that are made in the USA? I'm not putting some "Made In China" garbage on my vehicle.

|kenb1023||These were new product lines. They started selling them before they evenhad production going. Maybe in a year they will have a stock built up and this will be no longer an issue that that does me and anyone of the other 300+ plus people on the order list any good. They don't even have the decency to tell customers that the item will not be available for X-Months. This is a total lack of concern for the customer. So why should we have a concern for them or buy their products? There are plenty other suppliers out there.|

|Iceweasle33||I've purchased numerous Smittybuilt products from various sites and never had a problem. Their stock or lack their of, is based on the popularity of the item that you're ordering...|

I've purchased a few small items from them (handgun case with sleeve, mag light holder, first aid bag)
And they are alright. But their bigger items I would steer away from

For this Jeep Wrang family, Having issues with smitty, Rugged, Sears, K-mart and Now Midas.. Our options are growing limited and much shorter. I just don't see the kind of ordering like it use to be a few years back. Everyone is so caught up in this social networking afraid to lose a member (number) etc.. they have totally forgotten what's important.
This isn't the first time I've seen this kind of issue or comment.. Just today Sears contacted me still apologizing about a mistake they made nearly three years ago.. I would assume they are trying to win us back.. and it's not going to happen..
Sort of like: "Cross Me Once, My Fault. Cross Me Twice, Your Fault"
But again.. if we wanted to order something from any on the list above.. Guess we'll just have to do without.

|ESP||Not trying to insult but did you check prior to ordering that these products were available to ship?|
