    Does anyone with a Phantom with Dual Swingout have any idea what it weighs, even if its just an estimate? I am ordering some new leaf springs with the anticipation of my bumper coming soon and was trying to add up how much weight is being added to the rear...

    Ok, that’s pretty much what I did. Good to know it will stay lol.

    Also, is it just me or does the truck feel significantly more rigid? I don’t have a swaybar and I swear it felt like the bumper added some rigidity which I’m happy about!

    I don't know what's happening with them. I will say there are massive struggles industry wide right now. Demand is through the roof and supplies are super limited. A lot of 3rd party suppliers or other shops (powder - out sourced work for cuts or bends) has brands struggling. It's a big problem right now. For everyone. I feel for builders and customers. Busy is a good problem to have, but in some cases very much still a problem. And shipping has been a joke for everyone.

    Love that you do these videos. Super dope of you to be transparent and talk about your updates with everyone so they know what’s coming. I commented. I say we make it viral.

    Prep for my Phantom Ultra HC bumper. Pulled stock bumper off my 2020 and made a couple practice cuts.

    Shout-out to my daughter for filming— nothing like free help



    Should get to the dock in Ft Worth on the 15th! Yeeeee— perfect timing for Moab.

    With the weld it yourself kits that will be available. Will we be able to order weld it yourself swing out kits also?

    (still trying to sell existing rear bumper. Will probably be easer once I have it off the truck.)

    Any updates in the new bumper with the cross member relocated? I think I want to relocate mine since the approach on these things is gross. After looking at my bumper that I have there's no good way to hack it up and move up the cross member and the better option would be to sell it and make a new one!

    After seeing my buddy's first gen that measures 9 inches to the front of tire to front of bumper, the 18 inches that the third gen has even with 2 inches bigger tire is ridiculous!

    It's gonna be made of steel and I would say there's a good chance it will involve tubes
