  • whats up with big daddy offroad?

    I ordered a tie rod while at 4wd like 2 months ago and keep getting told that its backordered and going to come in at a certain date and then that date keeps getting moved......now i think its next week or something.
    i tried big daddy's website but it is down
    http://www.bigdaddysoffroad.com/

    does anyone know anything other then "its backordered and will come in next week...or the week after that"?
    did they go bankrupt, have a fire, drink to much Jose while in Mexico and are in the slammer being forced to drink the water???

    They are actually local to me. Last I heard Mike was doing some reorganizing or something and was going to come back on the market as Scorpion Offroad or some other gay name. Good luck and hope you get your stuff.

        Hmm I have not heard anything. I checked with our merchandising dept and it's still business as usual with them. Can you shoot me a PM with your order number or information and I'll look up your account?

                Those are some nice parts! A lot nicer than the stockers! I gotta keep that in mind...mine are getting rather crusty.

                BTW: nice use of a Q'tec shirt! Save the good ones from getting greasy, eh?

                Oh, and even my wife stated you really need a new fairlead for your winch!

                    when i ordered my rocker guards and tie rod from a local shop here the guy told me big daddy was in the process of retooling everything and like joel said was changing they're name to scorpion offroad. for awhile in you could actually go to scorpionoffroad.com and find all of big daddys stuff but i see now that the website is down.

                      Does anyone have the Big Daddy Tie Rod kit for a CJ? I them on my 5 and it seems to be a bit tight for adjusting. Almost like they are too long to bring the front wheels parallel. I haven't worked much on them yet beacuse I am still trying to get the Jeep running. Anybody have this mod done and complete yet?

                        there is only 4 or 5 threads per side left on mine once it was dialed in
                        there would be more but the nuts are there
                        you can kinda see it in this pic.

                          Ok, not trying to hijack, but since this thread is here:

                          My tie rod ends are shot. NAPA says I gotta buy the whole bar to replace the ends. Price is almost the same as the Big daddy part. Do these come with ends, or is my local Nappy blowing smoke (again)?

                            hold on while I grab you a fire exstinguisher to put that fire out....smoke sucks.
                            do you have an autozone? if so go to them
                            and big daddy does not come with ends but they do sell them

                              Carry one in the Jeep and one in the van!

                              Need an autozone here. Got a 80-100 mile drive to get to one.

                              Actually, I just gotta move....dang lease!
