    I was rear ended two weeks ago:mad: but insurance covered it. Now I have $3000 to spend on parts and labor :D I want a plate rear bumper but I can't decide between relentless fab or all pro. I like the looks of the relentless bumper, but I like like the additional side plates on all pro. but the hitch placement and price is better on the relentless fab.:confused: I have tried to call both, all pro said it would be three weeks before they get any hitches in plus ship time. I never got in touch with relentless fab it went to voicemail every time so I left an email waiting on a reply. so I was wondering if anyone has had experiences (good or bad) with either of these companies, product, customer service, shipping, ect.

    Pelfreybilt is they way I would go. They have great customer service and are very fast compared to others. Satin at Pelfreybilt is very prompt with e mails and phone calls too! Tyler can fab you a high clearance one with or without tire gate or just regular one without cutting your bed sides.

    I definitely want something that will bolt up like stock and have a receiver hitch to haul the boat and atvs.

    Relentless. I know he's doing a custom job right now, and am unsure if his office asst. is there weekends.. But I know his stuff is bulletproof.

    Brute force looks pretty good how long was the wait from order to ship to receive? Why not all pro specifically?

    Check out the bumper thread, should be stickied in the 2nd gen forum.

    Find some bumpers you like, call around for quotes on time and cost.

    I love my Relentless but fact of the matter is -- though Eric is trying to bring down the wait times, they can't keep up over there, so you'll have a decent wait. Not sure what the current wait is but yes I'd expect several months.

    May also want to check on powdercoat vs plain steel etc...

    Personally I think powdercoat is the way to go. That being said I was cheap and sprayed my Relentless front bumper on my land cruiser with bed liner. I also have a high clearance rear on my Taco and love it, but that got rattle canned. My powdercoated ARB front is SWEET though.

    Anyway... theres a lot of options but good info in that bumper thread.

    I've never dealt with All Pro but I've seen some real hit and miss things from them and reports of some hit and miss CS.

    Personally they make some things I wouldn't run and then again some other things I'd have no problems with.

    Their rear bumper is one of those I'd have no problem running if it fit the bill.

    I have an allpro rear bumper. I picked it up after being rear ended in an accident a couple years ago. A couple of months after putting it on, my truck was hit by an 80's Cadillac. The bumper didn't have a dent in it and only need to be repainted. The rest of the truck took about 14k in repairs. I have no complaints

    i know that it hasnt been mentioned, but CBI does a really good job with their bumpers. while i have a HC from them, the integrated hitch has really held up and their order/ship time was very quick.

    I kinda always support All Pro on here but I use their rear plate bumper with the side plates and i love it. My GF just put it on her truck to. There was no wait on it. took about a week to get it after i ordered. They always do me right and supposedly they have some killer july sells right now.
