      Their flat rate is great if you have parts that weigh a lot but fit the boxes. I have shipped spindles with caliper brackets, bolts and dust shields in large flat rate boxes for $21. If shit gets stupid with them, I will likely do more UPS.

          With the increase in online ordering plus another USPS price increase in the last week or 2, I don’t see how they are loosing money? Oh I know it’s the problem I always talk about. To many parasites on the host. You walk in the PO and one woman working the counter. ( with a shitty attitude) with 12 people waiting in line 6’ apart, line stretching 70’ while 6-7 postal people walk around with there finger up there ass and their mind in Arkansas!

            Ha-ha. Nope, I've been laying low lately. More goodies for everyone else!


            Hey Roy, I didn't realize you've been to my post office! Were you visiting from FL? That's a priceless assessment of mine. It's like the sloths in the DMV video, and they have only one speed with loads of attitude.

              I've been here more lately than any other FBO site. I'd rather put something to use another member has new / great shape than go retail. Been on a mopar diet, reducing parts I have, then pick up stuff I can use. No A's in the fleet at the moment unless that special 72 340 dart or 69 barracuda BB shows up that I'm not really looking for.

              I’ve watched people be their own worst enemy. While on the Fire dept I witnessed the city of Tampa’s paint crew slowly cause their own demise. While talking to the paint crew maybe 30 years ago, the crew chief told me their goal was to paint TWO fire stations a year!!!!!!!! I’m talking maybe 2400 sq ft! And that is why the city has no paint crew and is now put out for bid on a as needed basis.

                  Not picking on you. A saying I’ve used since Moby Dick was a minnow.

                  The large square one ? I just shipped 10 1/2” in a large flat rate. One in each with the drums. Seems like there was room for a 1/2 larger.

                  Nope, 11" brake drums measure right at 13" in diameter. the flared cooling fins are quite large. Fmedia%2Fcatalog%2Fproduct%2Fcache%2F1%2Fimage%2F9df78eab33525d08d6e5fb8d27136e95%2F2%2F9%2F2953.jpg

                      Mopar guys are a fickle bunch. Half of what they buy is for hoarding.... Trust me that if it's that good of a deal on anything and sought after you better be ready to get your name on it and quick.....

                          shipping sucks nowadays. WTF?

                          Fakebook lists a bunch of cars under 2000, and then the price is listed as 12,000 in the text. F that.
