PORC gears (Performance offroad center)

Has anyone on here had any experience with PORC (performance offroad center)? I am looking at getting some gears from them, but was wondering if anyone has had any experiences with the company at all, especially with their gear sets, and install kits. Thanks for any input.

From what I hear its hit or miss... I know a couple that had issues backorders, shipping, and customer service. My old man and I both have got gear sets from there with no issue.

Did you get Yukon gears thru them, or their brand of gears?

I never had any issues, and I ordered a lot of stuff from him. However, I've read people who had stuff back ordered.

i used to order all sorts of stuff from them, there quality seemed to go down hill through the years and the shipping became unp0redictable.

My biggest issue with them was reviving previously opened items(not a huge deal) that they taped back closed and would show up missing shims, seals and bearings
