Why thank you sir! I do have a gripe with Marlin's Quality Control on these products though. Numerous pieces came scuffed to bare metal. The silver front piece was already showing rust and had been bent right where the 4xguard emblem is. My biggest gripe was the hoop, the threads had a good strip of cured paint in the threads making it impossible to start the bolt. Had to chase it with a pick and tap. With the money we pay for 4xguard products I don't think we should have to worry about it not making the winter without rusting or needing paint. The gf was not pleased as this was my Christmas present. She wrote him a nice email with pics.

"Hi Marlin, I received the matrix/hoop as promised but I notice a lot of flaws on numerous parts were the metal is showing. I am not looking to send the parts back, my boyfriend was so excited that I got it for him that he put it on last night. He has ordered almost every part that you guys sell and has always been very happy with the products that he has received. I am a little upset about the flaws because we live in state that loves to over salt and I am worried about them rusting, he has decided that we can just repaint the pieces that have bare metal showing. I just wanted to let you know that there is an issue so you can attempt to correct it before someone that is not as understanding as we are has a problem. Attached are some pictures that I took of the pieces. Please let me know if you have any questions. Thanks,

Nicole Ehrmantrout"

Re: "Oscar the grouch" build thread

oh wow...I'll send him an email as well... When I got my Matrix, I had some same issue w some of the screw in points, so I think it's more of a 4XG thing than, Marlin but he DEF needs to know. I too, had a lil rust on the grill hoop but put a dab of paint and havent had an issue since! Hopefully this kinda stuff will be taken care of ASAP!

Still, looks damn good and welcome to the Matrix muhahahahaha

PS lights?! haha

Re: "Oscar the grouch" build thread

correct me if I am wrong but doesn't the 4xguard stuff not even come from Marlin? they are in two separate locations. so maybe he didn't even lay his eyes on it before it went out? either way its BS but not sure its marlin's fault.

Exactly. It seems Russ has been over it all for a while. Having no stock and what's left wasn't of best quality. I'm sure it'll be smoothed out soon. Marlin really cares and wants to change all this bs. But still our jeeps deserve the best of the best!!

Re: "Oscar the grouch" build thread

Tosh, just a though, but if you get a winch have you though about getting the receiver kit for the matrix, and on the the receiver plate for the winch? That way it stays inside the jeep and when you need it you can throw it on, just put some quick connects under the hook and your all set. IMHO its a cleaner setup, dosnt jumble up the front and keeps the winch safe and dry at all times!

Re: "Oscar the grouch" build thread

maybe lightForce strikers or something I always wander how the would look on a wk or even the big ones the blitz or the xgt. Know that you mention the winch I have look at some brands like ironwinch and rude winch both with 6hp motors and for a fraction of the price on the others brands have any of you got experience with those 2 brands?

PS IŽd seen both brands ironwinch an rude winch on TOYotas so they should be a hell of a good winchs having all that work
