    Anyone install or have a Winch Ready bumper? I actually know the owner and have been to his shop and home. I am just curious as to how many people have them already and what their thoughts are on the fit. I used to live by him but now being in the military i am like 3000 miles away and have never actually seen the tacoma one installed. I can tell you the ones for the ford and chevys fit well, the last time i was at his shop he hadn't started the tacoma bumper yet.... just curious


    Thanks
    Jeff

    Well what Im trying to do is set up a group buy for them. I have no idea what the demand would be for them however I am going to see if he'll work with us on a better price.

    :mad:OK..unfortunately for me east coast doesnt have any fab shops... I bought the winch ready bumper cost bare metal shipped is $1250! ouch. Dont know if its worth it yet, was payed for and told it would be at my home on july 23rd. When the bumper didnt arrive as promised i immediately bombarded their office with voice mails only to be avoided for a week !! when i finally got someone i was informed that my bumper was shipped to someone else!! which i totally call BS on! so i was then informed that they had another one on the shelf that still had to be ground and polished and if it could be done it would ship out on the 19th. I say WHAT THE HECK ARE YOU TELLING ME THIS CRAP FOR ?? The second they found out they messed up someone should be grinding down that bumper and getting it out the door!! COME ON GUYS , GET IT TOGEATHER!! in todays economy they should be kissing my butt to keep their payrole made. Instead im offered not so much as a discount or add on to pacifer my frustration . Instead was offered a "refund"??!! wow thats customer service.. From the blogs i've read about this place (after the fact) they have quite a fan club of distraught customers. So ok, i will wait another five days for delivery. If i get it and its not a bolt on in 10 min , i promise i will be posting about it!
