    i've been following forums all over the net with people claiming to have ordered the aussie locker to test it out, but no one has stated if they have recieved or tried it yet. anyone looked into this $200.00 lock-right look alike yet?

    Dear Aussie Locker Customer:

    Our business plan is based on providing the highest quality and reliable Automatic Precision Locker available to our customers, in a timely manner. Our customer service goals and objectives call for shipment of an order in no more than 4 working days, with 2 days being our goal.

    Unfortunately, we have had a problem with our Australian spring vendor, and while they have worked diligently to resolve their equipment and manufacturing issues it appears that they will not be able to meet our rigid product specifications in production quantities. This has caused a significant delay in shipments to us and until we can qualify a new vendor we are unable to establish a firm ship date on existing orders.

    We understand that this places a hardship on our customers and we apologize for the inconvenience. If you wish to cancel your retail order please send a note to us at sales@offroadlockers.com. We have not charged your credit card for the initial order as our policy is only to charge when the Aussie Locker has been shipped.

    For those who elect to keep their retail credit card order in place we will send you a gift certificate good for $ 50.00 off on your next locker purchase. You can give it away, trade it, or sell it or use it. It will be valid for 90 days from the date of shipment of your order.

    Again, we apologize for this inconvenience, but our commitment to quality will not allow us to ship any product unless it meets our very strict standards.

    Please contact us with any questions. We will do our best to provide you with an accurate response. You can reach me at bill@offroadlockers.com.

    Best regards,16 Fetzner Road

    here's the email i received today

    In May you ordered an Aussie Locker. We are just now scheduled to receive
    the model your ordered from the factory and will be shipping your order in
    the next 10 days. If you do NOT want us to fill the order please return
    this e-mail with Cancel written in the Subject Line. If we do not hear
    from you we will ship your order and will charge your credit card.

    We apologize for the delays in filling your order and thank you for your
    patience.

    This is a letter I received today from Bill Cole.

    Check it out...

    "The Toyota 8" Aussie Locker (XD-20830)has shipped for all outstanding orders. The 8.875" (XD-21230) is scheduled to ship this week. We are hoping for a quick customs clearance and shipment to you at that time.

    It has been a much longer road than we anticipated, but we really appreciate those customers who hung in there with us. Thanks for all your help."

    Bill
