My bumper will be here in 3 weeks and I am painting it with Dupli-color truck bed liner. I will post some pics when finished, should work fine...I see everyone keeps asking about prices...so just to give u a ballpark figure, my rear/tire carrier was $640 shipped

Rock solid bumper. As for Eddie, you couldn't get a greater guy to deal with. He's got top notch customer service.

Over two years old and still as tight as new. No rattles now or ever. Amazing quality.

I usually refrain from posting in bumper threads as I don't want to make anyone feel "uneasy" about asking questions (great question about the long term rattling BTW). However, I feel I need to at least say thanks for the kind words everyone! It really is rewarding to hear good stuff about your work.

Brian, I love that pic of the rear bumper all covered in snow..that's awesome! I had to call my wife to come look at it. She just rolled her eyes and laughed at me.


One thing I'd like to mention.. my lead time is really long at the moment. About 8 weeks out. Springtime always finds me buried in "tax refund bumpers". Keep in mind, bumper building is a "side gig" for me. I work a "dayjob" as a Defense Contractor Instructor for the Army. I work at my shop evenings and weekends.. still managing to get 40-45hrs a week in at the shop but every year, I get really busy about this time. Just want to be up front about the long wait.

Thanks again everyone!!

Got mine in today and love it. The quality is second to none. Forget about the "big box" companies, this thing blows them away in quality and craftsmanship, and built in the good ol' USA.
Thank's Eddie!

lol it did a killer job plowing through all that snow we got in Charlottesville last winter! The unplowed areas especially on the trails got REALLY deep. You can officially say your bumper is snow plow rated

I'll tell ya... I'd like to thank everyone for posting pics. A couple days ago, my PC stopped working (as in, it won't boot up when I turn it on). Anyhow.. I never thought about backing up all my photos to my external hard drive.. Now, I have to turn the computer in to a shop and hope they are able to fix it or at least extract all my pics and my bumper work orders (at least I printed out my worklist the day before the PC died).

Anyhow.. I was able to browse thru this thread and download all the pics to my laptop so I'll at least have a few pics to show folks when they ask for pictures.. You guys saved my buttocks!!!

Eddie, for future use... consider getting a Photobucket account and upload everything there My pics are still alive after several computer failures... With a "pro" account(like $20 or 30 a year) you can use FTP to upload or download any or all pictures to or from Photobucket to whatever folder on your computer/in your drives.
