Test fitted revision 0.3.1 of our JL Stealth Snorkel (ROAM JL Stealth Snorkel version 0.3.0 pictured), and then discovered some more improvements that can/need to be made so its back to engineering:

I absolutely LOVE this idea, great work!

Now, for the more important stuff:

Has ROAM made any improvements to the following in the last 6 months:

Communication
Manufacturing Lead Times
Quality Control
Shipping Lead Times

If so, when this is ready I MIGHT pull the trigger.

Nah. You’re no idiot, Rob. You’ve been very helpful to me.

If you never screw up, you prolly ain’t doing much, I reckon.

I just hope that wasn’t one of the parts that was so hard to install!
Nope lol. That's one of the first though so hopefully not too rusty! I appreciate the heads up. Explains why my exhaust rubbed on my track bar lol.

Wife and kids just gave me my Father’s Day gift. They let me open it early as I’m horrible about waiting. Here’s some pics for your viewing pleasure. :)

I had no idea this was in the works but I’m in. What’s the plan for the exposed tube and cover?

I absolutely LOVE this idea, great work!

Has ROAM made any improvements to the following in the last 6 months:

Communication
Manufacturing Lead Times
Quality Control
Shipping Lead Times

Haha. Great style, compliment, ball bust (correct poor performance) end on a good note. That’s how I do it!

I can honestly say everything on your list has improved. Anthony is like a one legged man in a butt kicking contest. Communications can always be improved upon but I know he’s trying.

Lead times, they actually have stock and have been shipping out quickly

QC, they have revamped their model and send out the products bare, e-coated or bedlined for reasonable prices. This will absolve them from being in the middle with a vendor does a poor powder coat job. Yes they are ultimately responsible but it sucks having to pay twice because a vendor doesn’t do as assured and promised.

Shipping, as mentioned they are turning and burning orders from what I hear

What I’d like is them to focus on the products already announced and get them to market. We’ve been waiting since nov for the slimline rear bumper/tire carrier. Roam is coming up with awesome stuff but if they waited to announce products until they are ready to ship that would go a long ways with customers expectations.

Very nice! Now, take a couple Tylenol. I’ve been sore since I did mine last weekend.

Thanks! It is quite a project but oh so satisfying. Just don't look at my bank account.

Haha I’ve been told I’d make a great politician albeit I’m not sure it was a complement at the time..

At any rate that’s all great to hear! I don’t wish bad on anyone and I know first hand how hard it can be getting a business off the ground floor in an established market base, it’s hard.

I’d have to agree with your last statement there. As I noticed, this same mistake was made when initially getting into the market. They bit off more than they could chew. Let’s hope this isn’t a repeat.

At the end of the day It does sound like they’ve been reviewing past performance and making some adjustments. Glad to hear it. I’ll keep an eye out for sure. Will be looking for proof in the pudding.
