    Just wanted to let folks here on TW know about my experience with All-Pro Offroad. I met one of their old employess a few years ago at Hollister OHV and he showed me a bunch of their products. Later that year Iwent with a friend on a trip the shop p,anned up in Panamint Valley. We had a great time and met all the crew. I was looking forward to some upgrades but military life got in the way. Finally ordered some parts recently and they took great care of me.

    Kurtis helped put together the order and was super easy to deal with and always responded via email quickly. I ended up with an Apex front bumper, an IFS and transmission skid, and a u bolt flipkit.

    Shipped UPS Ltl and it took less than 24 hours. Everything was packaged perfectly. Zero damage enroute.

    Installed everything yesterday and today. Straight forward no hassles, even on my old '05 that has been banged around, everything was easy to line up and bolt on. This new Apex bumper is very well thought out. I was able to do the whole install solo with the help of a floor jack, some ingenuity, and a few sore muscles. These parts are beefy!

    I know some folks on TW like the small volume fabricators du'jour, but when I'm ready to get parts I want them ASAP. All-Pro is where I will continue spending my dough. See you all on the trail.

    check out my build
    I've also had zero problems with AP. Got a bunch of their stuff over the years, and every time I go to them, they always go above and beyond with me. Met their staff a while back too. Cool folks.

    Too bad a small few have had bad instances with them and post it up, then everyone thinks their stuff is not good.

    Oh, yeah,... I wanted one of the new Bumpers by another competitor, needed it in a couple weeks. Nope. 4-6months! Cant do it. My truck was in an accident and needed the front end replaced within a month.

    So I went with a big name and had it in a few days.

    I purchased all pros rear base bumper . It was in stock and I had it home in a 3 hours .

    I know bumpers take time to build , but a 6 month wait ( or about ) is ridiculous , no clue how a company like that can even stay in business . They should build atleast 5/10 at a time to keep up with orders as they see fit .

    This is way off topic for this section but I will voice my opinions on this quickly.

    I feel if these small company's or individuals, once they are +4 weeks backlogged, need to hire on people to assist and move their status up to an actual business.

    When someone becomes that successful that people are purchasing these products regardless of the backlog, they need to step up their game and spend money to make money.

    If I had the finances to, I would open my own business doing car related things again. Especially for the off-road market. The order of purchase for myself would be -

    1. Location
    2. Welder
    3. Materials
    4. CNC Machine

    Again - sorry for going off topic. Felt it needed to be said though


    AllPro - I hope to do business in the very near future. I have plans, and hopefully they can be helped along by you.

    Looks good!

    I like the design of the Apex VS the old 3pc style. Hopefully someone local buys one so we can all see it in person and check it out.

    I am a repeat All Pro customer and have a few of their products on my truck. They have great products and awesome customer service. I like being able to support a local shop and being able to buy something made in the USA. It seems harder and harder to do that now a day….IMO
