Well, I'm going to call LII tomorrow and tell them about it. I did buy them from a guy at a show, and I will tell them that. Honestly, I think I can fix them. If I can, I'll beef them up a bit.

I also forgot to mention my E-fan kicked the bucket too yesterday. Ooops.

I guess to some it would be. It hit hard, but I've definitely dropped off things just as hard with the relocators and didn't have an issue.

Hey Kyle! I just decided on some local truck shop 6" ovals w/ 20 LED's and then ordered some 2" clear LED lights for reverse lights.

Also, talked to LII about my damaged sliders. After describing the drop that they took, they told me that for "hardcore" wheeling I should run shackle relocators. Wut? So I guess I'll do my best to bend these back and fix them, then weld some plate in to beef them up.

Nice! I've always liked the look of 6" ovals on the back of an XJ.

That answer caught me off guard a bit haha.

Curious to see how the taillight boxes turn out, Id like to build a set myself. Seems pretty straightforward and Ive already got material for it laying around.

That is a garbage answer. Did they even offer to do a warranty exchange?

No. However, I did buy them from another guy, and I told them that. It was an awkward conversation. I was like " well, guess I'll fix them myself and weld plate in them to need them up..."

And just to add, when I got them they were perfect. It's just hard to believe going down a rock ledge and dropping to one of the boxes, it bent it.

Maybe it was that 1/1,000,000 angle and it never would've bent them any other way lol

That answer is enough for me to never buy anything from that. Considering all the **** they sponsor that's a pretty unacceptable answer to me.
