I really like Destroked parts. Very high quality and the fit is spot on. Only real issue I have had is getting someone to answer the phone. If you're persistant, you can usually get thru though.

I had destroked build my 06 ford, they do great work, not to mention they are the pioneers of cummins conversions. Scott is super busy and is really the only one who can answer questions. Ford cummins guys were also very helpful and always answer the phone, I just figure that destroked has been doing the conversions longer and make qulaity everything.

I'm very happy with my Destroked adapter plate. Yes, Scott is a busy guy but he is knowledgeable and worth the wait. If i built another truck i would use Destroked.

for adapter plates destroked is much better. if you are installing a cummins in front of a zf 5 speed you don't have to grind the heck out of your starter area of your tranny with the destroked adapter. the fordcummins you do and by doing that can weaken and also destroy the core value of the tranny. the fordcummins adapter plate uses the dodge starter meanwhile the destroked adapter plate uses a 6.0 power stroke starter and it fits right in.

I went through Auto World in Montana. They seem to be partnered with Destroked and have the same pricing. All the parts fit the first time and they haveexcellent customer service too.

I used Fordcummins, Destoked was hard to get in touch with. I didn't have any issues with their products.. Always helpful and Answered any time I needed them. Also responded to e-mails within minutes in most cases...

One other thing about them.. I never paid expedited shipping but every time I called them and ordered something thet shipped it that day and it was at my house within 2 days max! most of the time it was next day..

In my opinion Customer service is Key.. If you have any questions will Destroked get back to you the day your trying to figure out the problem?

That is why Destroked has Dealers, Because he is so busy. Im sure if you call his dealers they will answer the phone and your questions.
