I too have had quite an ordeal with Ballistic. Everything seemed good at first but then parts showed up and some were wrong and others were missing totally. I asked to talk to Karen, she got shit handled and let shipping and the salesman know they fawked up! The correct parts were sent to me 2 days later and I ended up with enough extra parts to link the front of my truck.

But I am still waiting on air shocks, given they are 4 days out and should be here tomorrow.

Overall my experience was not pleasant. They have all the parts I wanted without having to shop several vendors to get the same stuff. I wanted to make 1 transaction. I still have hope for better customer service but not much.

I've never gotten anything other than stellar service and parts from Ballistic, but I've only been ordering parts from them for about 8 or 9 months (6 or 7 orders)

I'll keep everyone posted on how my transaction goes...


Ordered my parts Sunday morning....... Package was on my steps when I got home from work today!

They tried this same shit bout a years ago! One dude left and got blamed for all the shit. It was still fucking disaster after so til the owners get there shit together, they're ain't nothing getting better at that place!

Sounds like there still hiding the mystery investor to. No surprise! Thought it was BS from the start, fuckers probably pulled a insurance scam and got lucky! Thieveing fuckers!!

It's always somebody else problem that caused they're fawk ups. BULLSHIT! When owners are shitbags, the customers always suffer! These dickheads don't take no responsibility for nothing! They need to get there shit together put the stripper skanks back in the club and get off the coke habit! I ain't never seen nothing get fawked up worse than when a coke head stripper and some coked out dickhead who's finally getting a peace of ass get hooked up! Lose the skank, the coke habit and start jerkin off asshole!

I ordered a couple wheel spacers and a few shock tabs a three weeks ago and called them to check when they would get shipped last Monday. They said they shipped the Friday before. So a week goes by and I call on Tuesday this week and they said that they are waiting for the wheel studs and they will be here next week. Wtf I thought u shipped them a week ago. So they blatantly lied to me. So now I have waited three weeks no parts and still waiting for a refund. What a bunch of fags. Lesson learned. I wish I would have found this thread earlier and I would have never ordered from them.

Too bad, sounds like more of the same. I really wish they could get their shit together on a consistent basis. They have some great products, I want to be a customer but know better.

Yeah I ordered from them before and had a decent experience although it took them a month to ship some brackets. So I figured I would give them another chance but big mistake. The guy has plenty of time to post shit on Facebook all day and build new parts to sell but can't keep his customers happy. Shitty business practices in my opinion. I wont order anything from them ever again. I just wish I would have never ordered anything from him in the first place.

Late is better than getting lied to I guess. But u proly overpaid for them anyways. And having to wait is not ok when u order parts he has on sale( usually means overstock) and wheel spacers that are for any Chevy ford or dodge from the 1970 somethin to 2000.

How do you figure? I was over on the Ballistic Facebook page and there are still lots of people experiencing poor customer service. Sure, Allen is responding on FB but a significant problem has to exist before most people feel it necessary to air their problems out in public. I need to order a bunch of stuff for my project but I'm having to shop elsewhere 'cause I don't have the money or time to waste on getting played by a dishonest business. It's too bad 'cause their website shows they have a majority of the tabs I need. It would be one-stop shopping!

Well, I'm in the middle of a change of opinion...
Yesterday evening, after leaving my previous PBB post, I posted on Ballistic's FB page and was immediately surprised with a courteous reply from Jeff. Long story short, he asked me to give them another try. A few minutes later, Allen followed up with a message of his own. Today, Bobby from their sales dept. called me and left a message letting me know that everything I listed in my shopping cart on their website was in stock. I called them back and Bobby went out to the warehouse and physically put his hands on every part I was ordering to verify stock. The only thing they didn't have was some custom tabs I asked for but he told me they would laser them out this afternoon and my entire order would ship out tomorrow. With all the great comms I was getting from those guys, I felt confident enough to complete the order. I'm truly confident they'll deliver! I'll update here around the middle of next week for anyone interested.

I had a simular dealing with them back in October. Needed to build some track bars to control the axle wrap on my pickup. Never heard of Ballsuck Fab, but found their site on Google. I was over whelmed as they had everything. So I ordered 2 sticks of 2" DOM, 4 brackets, and four Poly Forged Bushings. Asked when it will all ship. Told the following day by lunch it would all ship. Little to my surprise, November rolled around and nothing. Called, Shipping the following day. Week later nothing. Called again, they told me the Forged Joints are on back order until Feb. WTF it is November and last month when I ordered you had everything. I asked them what they did have and it was the equal size Johnny Joints (whatever you call them). So I paid a small difference to get those. Well the DOM and Brackets showed up in teh early part of December and the Joints showed up later near the end of Dec. There were more phone calls then that but they blamed it on the "restructure of ownership". But the sales fag straight up lied to me a few times. He had a distinct voice, very west coast laid back with a touch of cock in mouth. Not sure what cock in mouth sounds like when its a dude as I suspect it sounded like this douche since he was not keeping his lies straight.

Its a damn shame as they have alot of nice stuff to offer. But what good is it if you cant get it

I just had a very similar situation a few weeks ago, was told it had shipped, it hadn't and didn't show up for another couple of weeks. Had a friend that had to finally cancel his order after a couple of months waiting, then had to wait for his money for just about as long.

I was weary to order from Ballistic but did get their 14 bolt shave kit, truss, and pinion guard. It all shipped and was on my doorstep within a week. No problems.

I ordered from them Friday. They told me that it's all in stock and would ship the same day. I'll let everyone know if it does or not.

UPDATE!

So far, so good! I ordered a butt-load of tabs and brackets on the 3rd, and as promised, BF shipped them out on the 4th. Allen sent me a tracking number and according to FedEx, my stuff should be here Wednesday the 9th. I'll check the shipment and let you guys know but I'm pretty confident it'll all be there. Jeff, Allen, and Bobby are all over it.

I checked my tracking #. It shows shipped the same day that I ordered it and on the way. Very cool.
