Our fabrication shop is in a holding pattern right now while we help liquidate our family's tool business. This means no large fab jobs (custom bumpers, sliders, etc.) for now, but we are still making swaybar disconnects, battery trays, etc.

Thats a quote from there website.

These guys look pretty geniune anybody buy from there ?
Now that one I like, the first one looks too big for the front of the truck imo. But really I don't like any of these style bumpers anyway for that reason, I would much rather see a good looking tube bumper or prerunner style bumper made with a good aluminum skid plate coming down off of it to the crossmember. I hope to have something like that for the front of my 2wd at some point, not sure what I'm gonna do to my 4x4 if I ever get it back on the road.

Just got off the phone with this company. They used to build for Road Armor so this is a Road Armor design. No stock right now but could build in a week and the price is $995. That is for a basic unpainted bumper.

Ya Winchready def. isnt cheap and they said the Fleet guard is 1325.00 Bare metal also ready for powder coat or paint. Which pretty much gives you the added grill and light protectors if you want power coat add $250. Shipping to a commercial location up by me was quoted about $325 which isnt to bad but brought the total cost to around $2000 lol

Honestly that imo is one of the best looking setups avail for the Daks and Durs, but I've heard some bad things about the company. I've heard good too, but enough bad to make me extremely hesitant to spend that much money with them. The Hanson bumper is the best looking one imo.

Ya i spoke with Kyle a few days ago to, they def. have my favorite setup for the dakota/durango. I prefer to have there bumper over anyone else just based on cost and value you get. He did seem pretty straight forward told me the production just ended for the bumper for my truck and i should hit him up in a couple weeks. Which will give me time to think if i want to by from him lol

I was excited about how good their bumpers look, and the price that they charge, so I ordered my bumper from them. I ordered a REAR bumper (much smaller and simpler of a design) and even paid in full. He said 1-2 weeks until I received it. After 3 months, I finally had to file a claim with my credit card company to get my money back. Every fucking time I called to check the status of my order, he lied to me and told me it was shipping out tomorrow or some garbage excuse. He even blamed me for calling once every two weeks and said "I'd get this done faster if customers like you would stop bothering me."

I fucking hate this guy Kyle, he is not a straight shooter. He never hesitated to talk down to me, insult me, lie to me, or even hang up on me (when he had my money and I didn't have my bumper). I would recommend you tp pursue other means of getting a bumper.
