I need five star customer satisfaction

Ok now I'm in the market for a plate bumper. No not flimsy looking ugly prerunner bumpers but something with some beef to it. I see all these vendors and bumper group buys but don't know who to order from.

As my truck gets older by the second I need some protection that can withstand practically whatever comes at it, I know my westin bull bar won't do shit.

Elite off road plate bumpers catch my eye but along with others all I see and read is "I've been waiting months for a response."
Who offers a great product with even better communication with their customers? Also for a reasonable price. Not dogging on Elite but would like to hear suggestions to prove me wrong

Pelfreybilt, but they have no 1st gen products....
I'll be going with all-pro when I do a front bumper, but from what I've read their CS isn't exemplary.

Not to be that guy but if you want a beef custom you need to be prepared to wait and change the truck getting older from seconds to months. Elite is a sad vendor, and if your thinking GB for any vendor be prepared to wait longer than normal. Relentless, brute force, CBI, sos are all vendors to consider I believe

Sounds like you're being "that guy"
I get that it takes some time to produce these kind of bumpers, obviously no ones gonna shit these out and ready to ship. But all I read is that oh it's a one man show out of his garage, he hasn't responded, I've had the wrong bumper in my garage for 14 months...waiting for a response...etc.
If they can't keep up with the business then they have no business being in the game.

Wut?

Most of the "reputable businesses" have a lead time. For a purpose. How could someone seriously have the "wrong bumper" in there garage for (14 months) 14 MONTHS?! Come on...

Now if you want a serious plate bumper, you will have to wait. Lead times apply to any bumper worth buying. Pelfreybilt, Relentless, Bamf.. To name a few.

After I repeatedly expressed my grief on here Tim finally contacted me over a month ago (I had no response before with repeated emails and phone calls), he said that he would build a new one and it would take 3 months to build. I somehow believe that I won't see it until this Christmas the way it is going.

I'm sure if you wanted jerry to build you one bad enough, Not 100% sure though. But my point is, if OP wants a bumper ASAP, there's plenty out there made from 1/8" China welded.

Who the hell said ASAP? Reread the OP sir, you might learn something.
I want to order from someone who I can communicate with and won't be let down waiting on a response IF something occurs or screws up and needs to be corrected. And no I'm not fabbing my own, let's be realistic, I will be paying for a service.

I read the OP sir.

I'm sorry if I came off on the wrong foot. Just pointing out the fact that 5 star business is highly opinionated as well as person by person.

Continue your search, again, sorry to impede.

Dewreck these threads go to hell in a handbasket real quick when the OP develops a short fuse. As someone whos been involved in very little drama on here over a long period of time, I can tell you, you're tacomaworlding wrong. If you want an honest answer on something, stay calm and try not to come out as 'hostile'. If you want your question to go unanswered and your thread to turn into a .....stay the course.

Everyone is going to have a different perspective on this. I own every piece of armor brute force has ever produced. Theres a reason I suggest them. Someone else may be in the same boat with relentless, or bamf, or pelfreybilt, or elite....and they'll wave their flag. Best advice you'll hear though? Find the product you love, be courteous with the guy who builds it, and be patient. With Billy, I know if he doesn't pick up the phone, he's welding. Which is where I want him to be.
