has anyone to date ordered these strips that were in the works about a year ago. do they have the proper indent around the wheel wells and the flared ends on tailgate end? any input appreciated. thank you, kevin

I had ordered and paid for a set of these bedstrips but never received them. Last I heard they were having trouble with the ones that fit around the wheel wells. Did anyone else pay for a set of them and didn't receive them either?

I also ordered and paid for a set, in march 2015 and never received them. I had talked to Steve Hill last fall and said he's still has a problem with the strips around wheel well.

sounds like he isn't having a problem having your money without sending out product. seems weird, i ordered some cross members and got them in a timely fashion. the money is what motivates someone to fix a problem.... keep me posted, did he offer a refund??

i thought about that. cut the profile of the wheel well. cut the edge off a straight section, bend and weld with a mig welder and grind. most likely undetectable as long as i do not do the welding. i have a friend who is very talented with this type of work. any other folks have ideas?

I ordered and paid for a set of these strips Feb 18/15. I was in touch with Steven Hill a couple of weeks a go and he told me the project did have some issues but is not forgotten. The way it sounded to me the strips should be ready in the next month or so..... I hope!
