Needed a slip joint installed in a Remco disconnecting driveshaft. Florida Powertrain (Jacksonville) did it a few hours. It came out perfect.
Quality Excellent

Purchased a Remco Disconnecting Driveshaft for a 2002 Isuzu Rodeo. It took almost 2 months for delivery.
Be careful when ordering a driveshaft, their Application Chart does not always specify the correct driveshaft configuration. This one came without a slip joint, so I took it to a local driveshaft shop and had one welded in. SuperFlow would have done it for $150, but it would have taken another 2 weeks with shipping both ways.
The Shifter Plate for this vehicle does not fit, at all. I have not discussed this with SuperFlow, but have sent them an e-mail, with no response. So I will be crawling under the car each time I need to disconnect the driveshaft and moving the disconnect collar by hand; not as convenient as pulling a knob, but easier than unbolting the driveshaft each time.
This is the only manufacturer of Disconnecting Driveshafts so we have to take what we get. I would ask for installation instructions for your particular vehicle before ordering. There were additional requirements for the Isuzu that are not found on the website.
The product itself is of good quality, it just does not fit.
Quality Very Good

July 4 - Had a light dinner. The salad was bitter and had bits of rotted lettuce. Main dish was barely warm. Service was quite slow even though the place was not busy. Over-priced, mediocre food and slow service are not a good combination when there are other restaurants nearby. The only good thing was the draught beer, which is not enough of a reason for me to return.

Took my car in for a wheel alignment. It didn't need to be adjusted, they even showed me the readings on the machine. So they only charged me $10 for an alignment check. My total time there was only 45 minutes.

Stayed here May 1-6, 2013 (Wed-Mon) Asked for a site with shade, only one was available, all the others are occupied by permanent RV’s. The only shady site was Space 18, which is in a hole and there is no way a 40’ MH will fit. So we ended up with space 66, in the sun. The campground is clean and well maintained. We were not there long enough to use any of the facilities (laundry, pool, etc). Internet is poor; weak signal and constantly turning off and on. Cable TV is the basic channels. The nicest feature is the quiet. No highway noise, just the occasional boat. That is until the weekend jerks showed up. One campsite making noise until midnight. I asked at the office the next morning about the noise policy and was met with a blank stare from the staff. She suggested that I call the toll free number to speak to the manager. That’s a poor way to run a business. My other issue is that the rates posted on the website are not what you get charged. Unfortunately I did not realize this until we were back home. Overall, not a bad experience, it just could have been better. We may stay here again, but only if we need to. If you stay here you need to try Castaways Restaurant, which is on the main highway. Good prices and tasty food.

Stayed here Dec 13 (Thursday) Flower Room - This is a quaint B&B. Everything is clean and decent. The room is a bit on the small side so don't bring large luggage. Breakfast is great. The location is within one block of Old Town, very convenient. A nice alternative to a motel for a reasonable price.

It sounded interesting and looks interesting. The pub in Hallandale was recently opened so it is clean and impressive looking. The wait staff are great. Lots of TVs with various sports. Now for the not good. Over-priced and small portions. Their "monthly special" beer was $5, OK it's 20oz, but it's also the monthly special. I had the meatloaf sandwich; a lot of bread and little meatloaf. It was tasty but otherwise disappointing. My small wife with her small appetite had the flatbread pizza and finished it all; she usually never finishes the her entire meal. So, if you can afford it, you may also want to have an appetizer to go with your small entree. If you are looking for a low price and typical Florida large servings this is not the place for you. We may try another Tilted Kilt in another state just to compare, otherwise we'll find somewhere else.

8-10-12 Purchased a Remco Disconnecting Driveshaft for a 2002 Isuzu Rodeo. It took almost 2 months for delivery.

There were additional requirements for the Isuzu that are not found on the website. The product itself is of good quality, it just does not fit. 3-20-13 Follow-up: After several attempts and ordering more parts from Remco I finally got the shifter plate installed. I had to order a different throttle clip so the shifter cable could be mounted on the driver's side; the instructions show it on the passenger side but the cable has a staighter shot on the driver's side. Additional cost; why doesn't Remco just send both clips with the kit? Had to order another U-bolt. The diameter is off just a tiny bit which causes the ends to spread when putting it over the differential, so getting the plate on is difficult. Then the U-bolt is also too short, so the nuts don't get on all the way and I stripped one side. I asked Remco for a 1/4" longer U-bolt when I called them, which they provided. More cost. Anyway, after much effort and frustration it is on completely and it works. Up until now I have been crawling under the car and moving the lock ring by hand. It works, but is not the most convenient method. I have travel a few thousand miles pulling the car with this device and it works fine. More advice: The instructions say to re-engage the driveshaft to put it in drive for a moment with the engine running and then into neutral and wait for the driveshaft to slow down before trying to push the knob to re-engage it. On the Isuzu (with an automatic) the transmission "drags" and continues to spin the driveshaft. Follow their instruction but then turn off the motor while in neutral and then push on the knob.

Stayed here one night. Saturday 4/9/11. King room. The room was large. Everything was clean and worked properly, even the bathroom fan. The motel has outside corridors, but it was still QUIET. Breakfast was slightly above average; toast, cereal, juice, coffee, eggs, sausage, waffles. They need a larger selection of pastries. The breakfast area was obviously well kept. The trash was not overflowing and none of the breakfast items were empty. Staff at check in/out were quick and pleasant. Overall this is a very nice motel. A good value. Stayed here again on Thursday and Friday. 11/22-23/12. Still a great motel at a good price. $54/night.
