    Hi there,

    Just want to start out by saying, your products are the reason I bought my truck. It has the rugged look and functionality that really got me hooked on Tacomas. I've visited your neighbors at TJM, and they had nothing but nice things to say about you guys, so that helped my choice even more.

    I love the design of the Demello Offroad plate bumper, especially the 3 hoop design. I came across this local ad, on craigslist. I have a few questions.

    Can this specific bumper still be used on my truck? I see where it's bent...how does this happen, and will it prohibit installing it onto another truck? Am I risking anything buy putting this on my truck?

    Also, the single hoop looks more rounded than the single hoop advertised on your website...was there a design change, or did this customer weld his own hoop? Can you guys cut and weld your 3 hoops onto these bumpers if I were to bring it to your shop in Corona?

    Thanks again, and keep up the amazing work! :)

    Yeah looks like he added the hoop him self. That also looks like one of our first ones. We sell a bracket now that goes over that piece at the bottom. The fact that he bend his frame too with what ever he hit tells me it was a significant impact. It's hard to say from the pictures but It doesn't look to bad and could be bent back to fit your truck.
