The "roll" didn't have any damage that I could see but some padding would have been nice.
That says it was that way when packaged! I have contacted the seller and he is offering a partial refund or send it back. Said he did not know it was rat damaged,,, WTF,,, this crap had to be spilling out of it when packaged! Myself I would have reathered he contacted me and said something like, Hey man this unit is damaged and I dont have anymore, would you like to terminate the sale? At least I would have avoided the waist of time! The doors inside is why I wanted it in the first place, its cold outside, and a fast out and back in sounded good! Hey if I send this one back maybe he can send you the case,,, with the 2 you could have a nice unit!
Well, I bought one and I am sure they are all coming from omix Ada as mine came in a new rugged ridge box and the box inside that box was beat to hell and waterlogged. The heater box itself appears to be in fine condition minus the surface rust on the steel backing plate. A new blower motor was obviously installed. I will try to include a picture. My understanding from you guys, is that this should work as a direct replacement for my OEM box in my 1980 CJ5?
Great Defcon, you just ruined my day. I purchased it because it listed the same part number that started this thread. So I thought I was golden. I thinks Me been had.can you please post a pic of what it should look like. From all sides? Thanks Pete
