    Alright Im a little lost, I know I was searching on here a while ago and found that someone made an Aluminum front offroad bumper. I have been searching for it all morning and cant seem to find it. Im sure im probably looking right over it but can someone lead me in the right direction please?

    I purchased a Relentless Fab Aluminum, but there is a 6 month wait, however build quality, design and style to me (IMO) was the best one out there so 6 months it is....
    Oh yeah Relentless's Aluminum bumper is 55lbs vs 100lbs, main reason I went with it, I still not quite sure on how tough it is vs steel but I already puled the trigger...

    Let's be honest... you really only care about your own rig.
    6 months? Wow, time to expand their fabrication processes.

    Yeah I hear ya, I went in knowing that, and as long as he sticks to it I'm ok. One frustrating thing is that he just did a group buy for the Hawaii guys, and they will get their stuff first. Kinda feel like I got cut in line, I've already been waiting 3 months.

    I'm looking to paint my armor, if I ever get it, how's Thermal coat treating you?
    I was looking at line X, never heard of thermal coat.

    Pound for pound, aluminum is stronger than steel. i.e. two identical bumpers, the 55lb bumper made of aluminum is stronger than a 55lb bumper made of steel.

    Steel can be pounded back into shape when it dings. Good luck trying that with aluminum.
