I explaned multiple times it was a 2wd tans and couldnt seem to get thru . Called Novak , they were spot on with everything.
Probably my only complaint with Novak is they charged me $45 to ship a transfer case shifter via UPS with an actual shipping cost of less than $12. Product and ship time are top notch so far.
Not much to be jealous of on the shop, its just a 50 year old block building my dad built with a wood and metal addition. Small cramped and always cluttered with crap.
The great thing about Novak is every single one of them has been working on jeeps and doing swaps for years, they are all really knowledgeable and have a lot of experience. They are also always trying to make things better by doing thier own in house swaps, we were prototyping a JK with an all aluminum 5.3 while I was there, it was crazy fun to drive. The 5.3 and 6.0 are Novaks favorite engines, so they provide a lot of support for it.
The bad thing about Novak is they are surprisingly small and every person there works their A** off to keep up, but sometimes they can't, but they definitely take time to make a quality product and provide support for their customers.
