^ What was your payment method and when did you order? I ordered on 1/28 and I swear he never charged my credit card...

Very disappointing. I bought a license plate frame and GrimmSpeed hood struts on Feb. 1, credit card charged on Feb. 4. I followed up with 86 Industries a couple days later, looking for shipping confirmation, and JR replied that the struts would get sent separately from GrimmSpeed, but the frame would go out that day. A few days later (Feb. 11), I sent him and email and he gave me a tracking number for the frame. He also said he confirmed with GrimmSpeed that the struts had been sent, and he would get me the tracking number.

Nothing but silence from JR since the 11th.

I did receive the plate frame two days ago. Irrelevant to this story, but the frame was unusable for me, as it obscured my issuing county and plate renewal year. It was also pretty flimsy plastic. So $15 down the drain, but at least I was sent the product I paid for.

Was really looking forward to the struts, though, and after no replies from JR for the past 9 days, I contacted GrimmSpeed. GS said they are unfamiliar with 86 Industries, though they (86 Ind) could be getting the parts through another reseller, but GS had definitely not shipped any hood struts to me and advised me to dispute the credit card charge ASAP and reorder through them or one of their recommended resellers.

So, that's what I did. I've reordered through rallysportdirect.

I paid with a debit card (I'm a fool). I should have used PayPal but I do not believe he offered it SMDH

also I apologize for the video; I took it down due to respect for the NorCal community

THANK YOU!

In short; your video consisted of two separate matters that were as far apart in relation as a pebble is to a mountain. One of those, I helped create and support - WE are that mountain here. The other, well it just keeps tumbling tumbling down. Gravity sucks don't it.

Totally understandable. We are a community even if we are across the country.

Together we stand, divided we fall.

86 fam for life

Ugh. Seriously? I know he was making profit off of some of the events, and I called him out on it on the last one and the prices for adjusted as we shifted to a bit more of a volunteer status. I also didn't like his attitude at times, but I wanted the best for him despite all of that. When you have problems with people you offer constructive criticisms, and then you work together to become stronger. If he really was in over his head in sure if he asked any of us we would have tried to help him out. Community is about trying to help one another, not throwing each other under the bus.

Based on the rules of the forums and issues people had that continued to go unresolved the ban is likely justified. I just hope he can make it all right, learn from this and grow to make a stronger return.

I luckily got out and didn't end up paying for much. I lost nothing because, thank god, my bank gave me back the money. I went to the bbq thing he held and when a friend of mine didn't show up -- he explained everything to me. that's when I just boycotted him and every attempt he tried to make money.

Hell I don't even remember what i tried to buy, lots of complaints on all his group buys and lots of complaints on all his sales items. -- missed that bullet and I feel blessed I did.

I bought the "fake winjets" in the group buy. It only took a couple days to receive the lights after the group buy finished. I don't know how to tell if they are fake or not BUT the packaging looks legit and the lights look legit. Also, the lights work awesome, the fitment is awesome and surprisingly the light output/projector in my opinion is better than stock! Every time I see these threads about 86industries I breathe a sigh of relief that my transaction seemed so quick and smooth! Sorry to hear of all the bad experiences!
