I own the Olympic Stinger, I had heard rumors of Olympic being crappy products before I bought mine but blew them off.
When I got my Stinger there was a run in the powdercoat from the tip all the way to the bottom of the drivers side. Also, on the same side underneth where it bolts to the frame the hole was off so the bolt went in at an angle.
I understand sometimes products get screwed up, it happens. But when my Stinger was obviously hand wrapped(with sections of cardboard and packaging tape, then placed in a large clear plastic bag... It shows how terrible their quality control is. Whoever wrapped it should have noticed the powdercoat run - it's impossible to miss.
I didn't bother emailing back the company, as I'll have it Line-X'd anyways(I don't trust powdercoat for anything). And eventually I'll get around to having the bolt hole reamed out at the local shop to fit a bit better.
But you get what you pay for, Olympic is a cheaper alternative to other brands. And personally while I like the look of their products - I will never buy from them again.
Hack work? :rofl: You just described half the modified jeeps on this board.
