Installed my full cage raingler nets tonight and received my 8.8 OX locker in the mail. The raingler nets are good quality. However the side nets are a tad loose. I spent $310 for the full system ($350 with shipping...). For that price, the side nets should be a better fit. It'll have to do tho. Got a couple more complaints about the company. For one, they charge me $40 for shipping (USPS priority mail from colorado to maryland) for a package that could not have cost them more than $20 max. I ordered the R5 system and then called them the next day to add the side nets to my order. They ended up charging me shipping twice but sent it all in 1 package. But thats not the worst part. I ordered these on July 15 and received them August 6 altho they told me that they shipped it on the 17th. I had to email them twice within that 3 week period to get things going. After my 2nd email, i was informed that my package had been "found" and that it would be there today. No apology for obviously forgetting to ship it to me. If you want a good quality net system, go for it. But they wont get any rave reviews from me for anything else.

Edit: after some back and forth with ed cline (the owner of the company), everything has been resolved. No more complaints from me. They handled their business as they should. 2 thumbs up for raingler.

Thanks for the help guys! I found the spot. The instructions really sucked for this step...

Picked up this bad boy from UPS today:

NP241OR Rubicon Case w/ ~55k miles on it. The yoke and flange are pretty rusty but other than that it appears to be in pretty good condition.

Can't wait to get it installed!

How much did that set you back?

PS: if I was to do it all over again, id save some $$ and choose a different company. My .02.
I had a bit of a mix up with my ordering too and I guarantee that if you call and let them know that you were overcharged then they will refund your shipping. I was not only squared away once it was all said and done but I guarantee that the quality of the product will outshine this experience. The windows take a little figuring but they will cinch up just like the rest of the nets.

You should call and ask them to make it right. They will.

Thanks for the advice. I ended up emailing but i'll call if i dont get a reply soon. It's just been a lot of hassle for one simple order. Hopefully it'll all get squared away soon.

I got the 35's mounted today. Now I'm ready to Rock...crawl.

I also had to raise where the garage door stops rising. So the hi-lift, attached to the luggage rack, wouldn't hit it now.

Canman, I just had the thought, as much as I've admired your rig, I've never seen a build thread on it, is there not one, or am I simply the last one in the world to find out?

No build thread. However I do have 710 posts in this thread alone and I assure you that over the last ten thousand posts or so you could hodgepodge together something that resembles a build thread. I pretty much just swapped parts as I needed them or they became unbelievably cheap. I check Craigslist like a 13 year old surfs porn.

I understand. I have the same case and same rubber. It's almost like you're copying me...
