PELFREY VS DREMELLO FRONT BUMPER

Howdy Everyone!
I'm at a point where I'm looking to invest in some new bumpers for my '13 DCLB Sport 4X4.

I've always been a fan of the three-hoop layout (first ones I saw were by Demello) but have read some really good things about Pelfrey Bilt stuff and they have a pretty sweet (albeit similar looking to the Dremello) three hoop option.

Does anyone have any advice for which direction I should go?

Now for the back, I haven't done hardly any research but if you have a suggestion on a rear bumper, I'm all ears!

Thank you in advance!

Welcome
Its Demello*, no r
If you havent checked out Relentless yet, you should check them out too.
Of your choices, I would go Pelfrey. Tyler puts out some pretty awesome stuff.

Typing too fast fAil!

Thank you for your response! I do think that I am leaning toward Pelfrey. I've heard nothing but really good things about his work.

Pelfreybilt. Quality. Great design. And it's strong.

I can't speak for Demello, they do carry a great product, as does Pelfrey.

I know Tyler personally, & we wheel together on some of the tougher trails san diego has to offer, I've seen him purposely slam into rocks just to see what type of damage will occur & gotta say I have yet to see his armor/slides/skids suffer anything more than some rock rash you'd expect to see when slamming thousands of pounds of truck on rocks... Ok, so now we know his products are up to the task, what about the man ?? Tyler is a perfectionist, if he's not happy or completely satisfied with the quality of a customers order guess what? It goes NOWHERE until he IS completely satisfied with the finished product, alot of fab shops should take a page out of his book in regards to customer service & pride in workmanship, other aftermarket companies will really have to jump to reach the bar that Pelfreybilt offroad has set....that is my honest observation..

I originally wanted a 3 hoop Demello, but after research and a year of thinking, I went with a Pelfreybilt. Tyler was able to even make it wider to fit my fiberglass fenders! He's the best. Craftsmanship, honesty, fast turnaround, and one hell of a beefy product. I get comments about it all the time.

rad. Thank you for your input! it sounds like Tyler and I would get along great, and with so many positive things said about his work I think that I am going to buy from him.

My rear is Relentless and regret it for fitment and alignment issues. My front is being built by Pelfreybilt he's a great guy answers my list of questions quickly and short turn around time.

Just chiming in. I bought sliders and full skids from Tyler. Awesome guy, and great work. I doubt you'll be sorry. I don't have any experience with Demello, so can't comment on them at all.
