I've got a set of Bud's for my brother's 4runner and a set of MAF's for my FJC.FJVP said:Thanks.....It is kind of a toss up between Buds and MAF.
How was it made wrong?RicoVerde said:I have the AllPros all the way back including the link skids but not the weld on diff skid.
Went on perfectly, everything lined right up. Very high profile which is nice.
They have never failed but I havn't really dropped it on anything at this point, just lots of dragging and scraping.
Oh yead, I also have this great looking AllPhase diff skid protecting a spot on my garage floor since it was made wrong and wont fit on my FJ. Any bids?
I think it's a mind controlling chip sending out micropulsed messages up through the frame and into the cab. It gets louder as you hit rocks and stuff. heheh.mir said:But be careful: Bud's do seem to come with a potion that you drink when you buy them and after that you no longer have any ability to make rational comparisons
I was one of like 75 people on the blue board that got into a group buy for this item. The response was so overwhelming that AllPhase had to sub out the job to a large fabrication company. The whole process took about three times longer than it should of because of the unexpected damand. When they finally shipped, the U bolts that were formed and welded to the plate were too narrow to fit around the shaft on the front of the diff and the loose U bolts that were to go around the axle housings were too small as well. Worse, their were wide variations in the actual measurements, some actually fit, but only a few. Once the problem was detected, the fab shop sent out shipping labels to everyone and offered to fix the problem, (I was slow on sending mine back, too busy with other stuff). When people got the replacements, they still did not work, bad angle on the U bolt. So now we have been told to hold onto our skids until they figure out if they should just remanufacture from scratch rather than trying to redo the existing skids.mattmainster said:How was it made wrong?
I had a prerunner pickup in the early 80s with aluminum skids and loved them. Light and strong. I liked the look of the rastas as soon as I saw them and would probobly go for it too if I didn't already have the AllProsGTKrockeTT said:alright guys, i'm going to be the guinea pig for those aluminum rasta plates...anyone care to join?
