    Do you still have the pics that you sent them? Iíd like to compare them to mine.

    Also, what kind of file did you use?

    Looking at the pics, mine wasnít that bad compared to yours... They responded quickly though. Iíd definitely send pics and make sure they honor the warranty if advised to clean it up yourself...

    Thatís a shame that carbon sent those to you. I have their fronts and mine were great. Austin is a pretty good guy to work with.

    Mine were a little messed up like that when I got them too. I used a triangular file like the far left one in TrailHunters photo.

    It sucks they got to you damaged. The good news is it should not hurt the strength of the shaft.

    After documenting it, I would not be worried about cleaning it up with a file and running it.

    A triangle file will likely be the best fit. It won't hurt a thing out on the end like that, even if you file a little extra to make sure it fits easily.

    As above, make sure to send them pics so there is no questions if you were to ever need to warranty one.

    As the female John said to the male hooker, I paid more that 200 dollars for a clean shaft. Give me what I paid for. //////get a new one.

    All 4 of mine are Carbon. Didn't have any issues with them other than shipping times and Austin got it figured out for me. Sorry you're having trouble, but I'm sure they'll make it right.

About us
ďwayoflifeĒ is a moniker that Iíve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
