    Yes the center light hoop with half grill guard looks like this (pulled the image from Blackdawg's build):


    I just checked on his site to see what you were talking about & I don't have the option to powder coat either :confused: Might have to give him a call/leave a voicemail or shoot him an email. That or do some shopping in your neck of the woods and see how much businesses charge to powder coat the bumper

    :annoyed: Lol. Tim is lucky Relentless's wait is 2 months longer or I would go with one of them. I'm just waiting to see if he is powder coating still or not.

    I'm not in the Group Buy, but we exchanged a few emails last night. He's working full time and doing all of this so you can imagine how strenuous it would be doing 40+ hrs a week & doing this side job.

    He is alive for all that were wondering :rolleyes:

    Ooooookaayyy...I've been biting my tongue in here lately, but Let's be fuckin real... How hard is it to log on to Tacomaworld and post an update? I'd imagine it takes roughly 5 minutes out of your day. Not really too taxing...

    And, while I'm ranting... Enough of this "working 40 hours a week is so goddam hard" bullshit. I'm sure plenty of us on here work long hours, have second jobs, childcare etc, and still manage to spend a few minutes on TW.

    I'm not asking for a bumper to be banged out in a day, in fact I have no problem waiting for an awesome handcrafted peice of automotive excellence! I just think its common courtesy, as well as good business practice, to keep in touch with your customers, especially those who have paid in full for a product you have yet to deliver.

    That is all.
    Rant over.

    I feel better now.

    Maybe he's out there working on these bumpers rather than on the computer? Just a thought

    Not hard at all. I just stated how I'd imagine it would be tough working 40+ hrs a week & fabricated bumpers in your spare time.



    I could not agree more with this:

    I would rather a vendor take an extra day or two to complete my bumper and use the other time to respond to inquiries.

    I've experienced better customer service from Tim than it appears most on this thread have, so that's disappointing about his reputation since he makes such an awesome product-- I would argue hands down the best on the market at this time.

    Yeah but at least those are good purchases. I want a DSLR pretty bad. I'm sick of taking iPhone pictures
