I am just speechless. This has to be some kind of nightmare. First problem with rovan was the shipping problem and from that point I knew I fucked up buying from these guys. Recieved the truck today 11am. Opened it up and nightmare became real very quickly. I contacted rovan and again I am being ignorned. I am giving them untill tomorrow and I will contact PayPal and my bank. Is going to be a headache sending this truck back and praying hoping for my refund.

Dan owner of rovan shame on you for selling trash like this.

Everything about this truck is garbage. Rear diff was crunchy and grinding like crazy and very hard to move. The plastic is so soft and flimsy. Heim joints are incredibly loose. This truck is a salvage truck that had been put together by monkeys with junk parts from Afghanistan.


Guys don't make the same mistake I did. DO NOT BUY ANY ROVAN PRODUCTS.





Came packages like shit.

Its one thing to break something for going a little too hard. Atleast a real honest quality part is there for you to replace the broken part. WTF do you do when the whole car is just a POS? where do you go for that? Its not a good feeling loosing 1,000's of dollars to junk manufacturing

Not beating you down @niz55 but I believe I said shitbox before you bought it. But I did say maybe a decent truck trying to be nice :ROFLMAO:

You definitely did s d I should of listened. I really wanted a mtxl but couldn't find one. People were saying that they had diff issues well I'll take that over this truck any day.

Makes you wanna go in the other room and give your name brand rig a pat and say good truck i knew you weren't a piece of shit:ROFLMAO: :ROFLMAO:
That's exactly what i did.

At first I was thinking just buying a 5b kit again and use the parts on from the 5b on this junk but to be honest everything needs to be replaced even the motor. I mean every fiddlesticking part is on this truck is awful.

$1400 piece of metal sitting in the garage.

I get it and I feel for you. It should be a crime to pass off that junk especially at the price. And did you catch my edit with the pics of the scratches on the piston? That is just un excusable ignorance for selling that garbage
