    Soooooooo... The saga continues.

    I went over to Fastenal to pick up my bumper today, all stoked and fired up, ready to spend the day prepping, painting, and installing! The Fastenal guys brought me around back, where "my" bumper was sitting on a pallet, looking badass as ever!

    Then I started looking closely at it... NOT MY FUCKING BUMPER!!!

    ARRRGHHH!

    I ordered a center light hoop and half guards, plus Cnc cut elite logo. This bumper has none of those things!

    The pallet and bumper are labeled "GB17". I'm #14 on the group buy list, and I know there was a number mix up when someone backed out, but its 3#'s off?

    So here is somebody else's badass bumper

    2 phone calls, an email and a PM to Tim. Still waiting for a reply.


    Oh and hey, if anybody out there received my bumper, ship it to me! Please!

    So i got a call from tim. Looks like that was my bumper after all, his guys just messed up the order.

    Back to Oregon it goes, to get the hoop and half guards welded on. Also, looks like i wont be getting the "Elite" logo cnc'd in the lower part. oh well...

    Tim offered me a discount to make up for my troubles, which I appreciate very much.
    So I'm back in the waiting game... Sigh...

    just the factory bolts but you should have got 2 grade 8 studs with nuts that go on the frame horns.

    Ya know, I was thinking that someone ought to do an install write up. One for each generation. No instructions or hardware included, makes it kind of a guessing game. I'm sure it's not too difficult to figure out, but hey why not!

    Now I'd gladly post the write up for 2nd Gens... But alas, I has no bumper :(

    If you took any pics, or have any tips on mounting your Elite bumpers POST EM UP!

    (Might even be worth creating a thread on Tim's vendor page...)

    Nah, just for you first gen guys. Nothin for the 2nd gens.

    I'm sure it's not rocket surgery or anything, but just figured a few pics and a write up wouldn't hurt?

    eh. The way i see it, no one has had an issue yet..don't see a need.

    it goes on so much like stock really the only thing you might be changing is the reinforcement brackets and trimming the fender well plastic.
