Dave'z Off Road Performance
« on: Aug 01, 2018, 04:04:36 PM »
Has anyone ordered parts from Dave'z recently? I'm thinking about ordering a triple stick, but I've heard some not so great things about them on the usual 4x4 boards in the past. I'm afraid to place an order only to have the shifter arrive 6 months later.

Posted for pre-orders on another board saying he would be ready to ship in a few weeks. Gave up after six month.

Ok, I guess Dave'z is out of the question then.

Anyone have any experience with RAD triple sticks? They look like they might have clearance issues.

Twin sticks really are pointless.  If you HAVE to have one look at front range off road.
hold this. . .

twins are lame but triples rule :gap:
Keep it TOYOTA!

In the past years, I used to get a lot of calls from Jeep owners wanting to go slow like the Toy trucks.

I mostly wanted the convenience of having everything up front, and not hacking up the floorboard.

Every RAD set up I have seen has the floor cut a little unless they had a body lift. I also didnt want to cut up my center console or loose my heater in my 4runner. Made a front range twin in to a triple, was able to clear everything without cutting or lifting.

That sounds pretty awesome. Do you have any pictures?

I have always loved my useless twin sticks for doing most of the trail in 2wd and having great steering when using lunchbox lockers in front.  When no driveline pressure is being applied they are completely unlocked allowing easy 2wd steering unlike a Detroit or spool.  I call it a poor mans ARB..lol

You could modify the rear shift lever like I did for the front case.

Snowtoy, do you have any issues with the stick interfering with each other?

No, in the pic they are the closest in their Hi and 2wd positions, there is just enough play in both so they don't interfere with each
other in this position.

I ordered some rock sliders from Daves last October 2017, ended up canceling my order that had a 6 week lead time because it was already June 2018
I was patient and called about once a month after the first 12 weeks passed, then on the last month I called about once a week. They kept telling me “the order was ready to ship out” “it’s right here on the floor just needs to make it on the truck” I finally called to cancel the order. Dave happened to answer the phone… and he gave no excuses, just said “sorry about that, they have been right here on the floor ready to ship, ill refund your money” He didn’t try to resolve the situation or even say I’ll put them on the truck myself there buddy.

I went with the RAD design triple stick. I liked daves design better mostly for aesthetics reasons, but oh well RADDesign had the shipment to me 3 days later.
I got burned by Dave and WabFab in the same month, it’s been almost a year and haven’t received my Wabfab order
