    Alltizer in mound house is good. Call them with dimensions first to be sure your bumpers will fit in their incinerator.

    @RelentlessFab has recommended a couple in the past that they use.

    Any of you Reno folk that have been driving around lately -- how's the fall colors? Is it day trip leaf peeping time? All the trees in my subdivision are still pretty green. Saw some pics from out near Elko on another forum, and it looks like fall already hit like a ton of bricks.

    Higher elevations are turning quick. I was up in South Lake Monday-Wed and the aspens were all bright yellow going over Spooner.

    Awesome. Sounds like a tahoe drive-around might be up for this weekend for us.

    Well I must say my relentless skid has a much better powder than my other brand bumpers...

    All my Relentless stuff has bomb proof power coating. My front bumper still looks brand new after 4 years now. Not a single chip or peeling anywhere.

    Relentless Armored! Too many others to list.
    We've used a few over the years, and some are now gone or under new ownership. Currently I'd recommend Advanced powder coating and Marq powder coating for larger pieces and Rockin E Custom for smaller parts with quick turn around.

    I got an AllPro skid as one of my first upgrades. Thing has been a beast, but were I to buy again, I'd of course support my local duders. Powder coating will probably do a lot better than the paint that came on mine.

    Trees in my neighborhood are changing quickly up here. I'm in Zephyr Cove at almost lake level. This picture of my yard.

    Haha yeah, and thanks again for the help last month with the nitrogen for the Kings.

    Went up to Spooner today fall is definitely in the air.

    So I work in outside sales, which means I'm usually on the road 3 weeks out of the month. We got grounded in April, and finally today I put on a pair of long pants for the first time since April. Cannot wait for cool weather. I am not a summer heat type of person.

    Incidentally, probably the longest amount of time I haven't been on an airplane for well over a decade.

    Any of you guys up in area 6 this weekend? Saw a few tacos up near Maggie summit. First time up there for me, crazy beautiful area.

    Random piss poor shot in the dark, but if any of you happen to come across a used shell in quicksand for a long bed let me know. I'm working up my nerves to buy a new one ($3200 as optioned, ouch).

    Going to go with the ARE Overland unless someone else has another recommendation. Sliding windoors, foldable front glass, LED lighting, yada yada.

    I would buy a go fast camper if they weren't a year out. shell + hardshell rooftop tent is pushing 7k as it is.

    Have you looked at the aluminum or stainless offerings like from Alu-Cab or RLD?

    I have an Alu-Cab with an Autohome hardshell and really like the setup. Lighter and way stronger than fiberglass. Not sure on the Alu-Cabs but I know with RLD they will paint match.

    Any idea on what the ballpark price point is? I haven't looked into them yet. I liked the idea of having a shell that fits with the ergonomics of my truck, but I'm not opposed to having something a bit "uglier" if the price point is in line.
