    Looks like Kennesaw Mtn fabrication has changed their name? Sneaky move for a company with many BBB complaints.

    No personal experience but have ready many complaints.

    Just google their old name and there is thread after thread of complaints. Fit issues, build time issues and poor service after they get your money. Spend a few hundred more and go with ATO, CBI, Relentless, ARB, or All Pro. The extra money spent is cheap piece of mind.

    Interesting that Kennesaw saw the need to change their name? The bumpers look good (especially the rear w/ tire carrier for only ~$700) but it sounds too good to be true.

    Speaking from my experience, they could have simply neglected to trademark or register the original name, and someone else snatched it. I have had to change names before simply because I forgot to secure my domain name for the next year and some spam company took over the name. It happens all of the time. The first two names I operated under over a decade ago were lost because another business registered it first, even though I had already been using it. Things happen. If the company has a bad rep, thats too bad. I have had quality issues in the past myself... but it may be unfair to assume that based on a name change. Thats all I am saying. I say give everyone a fair shake.

    Well they may have a bad rep but their bumpers are very good, easy to install and cheap. Ive been rear ended twice and no damage to my truck but a free powdercoat. cant say the say for both cars. That's my blue taco on there website with the rear bumper. Now that i have i wish i would have gotten swing out. I might order it and have someone weld it on.
