So I have been wanting to order a bumper and winch.. I really really like the Shrockworks.. But 5-6 Week Delivery. So my alternative is an ARB..


Opinions?

I have an ARB on my FJC, like it, but don't love it. Looks like the Schrockworks incorporates more than the ARB, sorta like the new Demello rear bumper coming out for my rig. Wait and get the one you want!

All Pro is another option.



I've read that others have been waiting months, not weeks, for their Shrockworks stuff. But reviews have been very good.

It's personal taste I guess. I like the looks of the ARB - less "flashy" than the others, but I'll acknowledge that it lacks all the functionality, has worse approach angles, and doesn't give as much clearance for the front tires.

I thought about the Allpro. But I really don't like the nekkedness of it.

I think you guys are right.. I will have to wait for the Shrockworks.

Holy shnikes! For $979+ shipping you could have a custom one made locally!

(mine was less than that, and it's welded airtight!)

Yeah You will see both Troy and My bumper done by All Phase - custom and these are BOMB proof. Don't like ARB because it seriously decreases your approach angle (though it does look cool) (Used to have an ARB on My old rodeo) You will need to sacrifice coolness and bulk factor for aproach angle somewhat - But I think Troy's bumper is a great example of a happy medium!

Heads up. Shrockworks stuff if great stuff but...... 4-6 weeks can be up to 6-9 months (sorry Jim). He is so backed up from what I hear. If you don't mind waiting, the Shrockworks stuff is worth it.

Sorry to hijack, but if you folks were going to get a rear custom bumper + tire carrier, where would you go? The talk of bumpers reminded me.. sorry.

I'd be willing to travel almost anywhere in Colorado to get it done right.

I think AllPhase did an awesome job on mine and Molly's front bumpers, but they are SLAMMED now - it would be a while before they could get to it I would think.

Ill probley get banned here also for voicing my opinion, but if your wanting a "custom: bumper, look at what others have, and "use"
Talk to the people that have custom stuff, (not the web wheelers)heres a few links to check out.
Armorology
Rockware
and remember, you get what you pay for..

hope you get what "you" want....

Note that if you DO go custom, just about everywhere will require the truck to be there while they build it. Armorology and Rockware are down in Colorado Springs, AllPhase is in Longmont.
