    This, that, & the other thing
    Except for information on how to order. That would be helpful to most instead of ordering through PM with a complete stranger. No offense, but for the price of your product, I think consumers would like to have some security in knowing that they are ordering a real product from a real company. You're talking over $1000.00 and that's alot of cabbage to lose over something that doesn't appear to be legitimate. It's not like we're ordering stickers from some guy with a vinyl printer in his basement through PM message for $20.00.

    Having a product for sale on a forum is very limited to the people that look in the "Armor" section. It's like setting up a lemonade stand in the alley: Very limited traffic. Set this up on a busy corner (website) and watch the cash start flowing in. Even Googling your product only comes up in here or sends you to the site in Australia. Also, the link for your company just forwards to the site in Australia, which isn't much help to Americans looking to buy your product, hence the questions about pricing and how to order. Even better, start advertising this stuff on Amazon with your other products. They are the largest 3rd party retailer in the world and many of us use it on a daily basis. :thumbsup:

    We are in the Rockies and there are a ton of Tacoma owners in these parts and the front range of Colorado, which is 40 miles from here. I think you have a nice looking product and just think there would be a better way to get your products out and possibly even get a distributorship.

    Oh, and I don't mind talking about this publicly. I have nothing to hide. :cheers:

    It's definitely not cheap to sell on Amazon, especially as much as shipping prices can fluctuate (especially from Miami), but you are correct. So here it is: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B06XJ9NDDS

    I wonder if there is enough space to put the license plate to the passenger side of the light bar. I live in a front license plate state unfortunately.

    I don't think so, unless you could fold it. It would
    look kind of funny. I'd suggest something like this, and maybe run a light bar on top instead of inside it.

    The light bar is not essential, especially if it's got the lights above it. Not a bad idea.

    I'm not ready to buy yet. I'll probably upgrade to this after I destroy the stock bumper lol. I'll probably do some sliders first.

    Received.
    Unexpected bonus: Hi-lift jack points.
    Having it powder coated to match the MGM.
    This company in Auburn, ME is awesome.

    25yrs in business, ovens large enough for full frame vehicles, infrared oven, dip tanks , etc. The owner Dave was a pleasure to deal with, walked me around the shop and showed me the full process, AND is right by a large UPS freight facility and willing to accept freight shipments.

    Can you fit Baja Designs sport fog lights on there openings for the light? How heavy-duty is this bumper? Thinking about maybe picking this up and there’s a place near me that has it in stock ready to paint and install but I just want to make sure it’s a good heavy duty bumper

    I'm pretty sure it's possible, as they are stud mounted fog lights that we use. @eevaldes has been running this bumper for quite some time and can attest to how strong they are.

    Main Line Overland in PA and NH both have them in stock I believe.

    Yes. I contacted them from the place in New Hampshire and they do have it in stock!!! The only problem is I don’t want to do that install myself and they’re charging a lot of money to install it lol. I’ll see what I can do

    I had Main Line Overland in NH do mine. It took at least 6 hours with all the right tools and multiple people. I was one of the firsts and there were some fitment challenges.

    It’s a pretty easy project. Highly recommend getting a harbor freight lawn mower jack and shimming the bumper level. Much easier than two people trying to lift and position it

    I ended up contacting them. They wanted close to $1800. For the whole install. They wanted like 500 bucks just for installation which I thought was pretty expensive. I’m going to see if I can find another shop that’s a little bit cheaper in the area
