Got my new ATO HYBRID bumper :D

    You can call me Susan if it makes you happy.
    So this story starts last year in September, I pm'd Kevin at ATO and ordered his Hybrid bumper. Im promised 2 months until my new bumper would arrive at my door step, so without question I send the 300 dollar deposit and begin to wait...

    Jump ahead a month and I stumble across this thread http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/armor-tech-offroad/244361-paging-kevin.html. I figured he was just busy and was alittle behind, no big deal. I still was in loose contact via pm and Kevin assured me my bumper was almost completed and ready to ship.

    Well that turned out not to be true, with the reveal of 4x Innovations purchasing Armor Tech Offroad there was some confusion that followed. Heres where I give MAJOR PROPS to ADAM the new owner of ATO. The first day it was announced he was buying out Kevin I was on the phone. After about 1 week of phone calls and emails between myself Adam and Kevin I was fortunate enough to get my deposit back from Kevin.

    Needless to say I was upset that my bumper had not even been built, Adam told me it would be a few weeks before he was able to actually start producing these bumpers and that he would PM me when he was ready.

    The day finally came, I got a PM from Adam saying he was ready to start building these bumpers :D. I went ahead and ordered one along with a few minor touches that I wanted to be included. Adam promised me a lead time of 4-5 weeks and much to my surprise he deliverd, just over 4 weeks after I ordered it the FedEx man was ringing my doorbell and i was looking at my new bumper :D.

    I waited 7 months for my bumper (not as long as some I know) but it was worth Adam did a bang up job. I want to highly recommend Adam at ATO he is a great guy and i WILL be buying from him again in the future (can you say high clearance rear bumper :cool:)

    Enough talk here are the pics :D enjoy

    I still have to mount my fogs lights using Adams fog light brackets and I'm throwing on 2 duallys until I get a LED bar.

    Looks great.

    Glad to hear that the ATO name has been sold to a company willing to make sure the customer is happy -- even if it was before they we're involved with the ATO name.

    I'm sure this will put a lot of people at ease to see these products are still being made to meet or exceed "old ATO's" standard while also providing excellent customer service. I know the the whole buy-out thing kinda had me turned off to ATO to be honest.

    That's one reason I made this thread, I really can't emphasize how great of a job Adam did, his customer service is excellent!!
