Safaigard trying to come back!

I have been hearing rumors that Greg is trying to bring Safarigard back, I thought he f....d enough people over, so he would never be back in business. I hope people put the word out not to buy from him.

I hope Greg can make up for his disappointments and bounce back. He needs to be active in the business this time and quit passing the buck.

I didnt think Buck was affiliated with Greg and SG, other than they both have yellow d-90 buggys, so maybe that is what you meant.

IMO never really prodcut problems. The original version of the three link had 'growing' problems. But was soon ironed out.

Always a distribution problem. And sometimes Mountains are made out of Molehills with these issues.

But problems nonetheless.

Your turn in the barrel and the crew is restless.

$G still owes a friend of mine a refund of more than a dollar or two.. seems like that is going on a year now

FWIW, I think $G products are great looking... has to have been that someone was just in over their head. I personally wouldn't do business with them based on how they've treated a few people I've met over the past couple of years.. but if they could get back up and running, and organized, it could be nice for future Rover owners to have more options than they have now when it comes to mods

design skills and an ethical business practice are two different things. On a good day they seem to have been great. On a bad day, booooo.

There is a reason people like RTE and Rovertracks do so well.

Greg and Brandi at SG are great people that have been good friends to me and my family over the years. And no doubt that I have been a good customer. Lots of great memories of trips past and fun times. Since I left CA I've fallen out of touch with what is going on over there. I do have a bumper on order so I intend to find out. It has been established that Greg and his crew are great fabricators. That being said, everyone wants their junk yesterday, and patience is not a virtue that most people have. But I'll be the first to admit that you shouldn't promise something that you can't deliver so I can understand the frustrations.

are you serious! im a fitter machinist by trade and i dont know of any tradies that would send out this type of crap.
it took 4 months to get a 3 link kit from them to AUS. they charged my CC twice!
when the kit did turn up, the left and right link's are differant lengths BY 1/2 AN INCH!!!!! none of the bushings fit in the housings, i have to cut 5-10mm off the tubes, the spacers are differant lengths to the bushings when installed... the center link has pulled alot from welding and is bent in the middle and UNF NUTS DONT FIT UNC BOLTS

cant email them, server returns all my emails, wont answer the phone and the fax wont go threw.....

apart from that yeah they can stay in business as long as i dont have to deal with them ever again...

Amen... the brau speaks and I second that. I understand that this may have been an error on hiring someone under skilled but hey then we can just blame him for piss poor management skills. Either way you decide. I think the bad outweighs the good.

the rte looked close enough for me and it seems to be better constructed as well.
