Re: cut and weld... I mean cut nd fold

if your gonna do panels id go with the flop shop. I have the bumper from rustys that's made to go with rustys C&F panels and it works good with what I got. and if you order rustys C&F panels and the other section that goes with them, they cost just as much as TFS panels

Maybe they've improved their QC, but I'd be more worried about having Rusty's welds on my Jeep.

(I have personally seen two of their trackbar assemblies break at the weld. Once backing out of a driveway, another noticed at a Jeep show. Perhaps they just had a bad batch, but I would rather run my own welds than theirs, now.

Re: cut and weld... I mean cut nd fold

The bumper I got from them was very well built. not to say that there isn't some things that I wouldn't do. but for a normal person itd work great. now I just gotta get my tailpipe redone due to having a huge amount of clearance between it and the bumper now.

They're up to $155 now, which seems kind of steep. The Rusty's product is $69 unfinished or $99 powder-coated. Just throwing it out for information. I have no financial stake in either company.

i noticed the price jumped up, they are well build, but the fitments takes a lot of adjusting, no instructions etc not worth $155

$155 is foolish. They are a $100 product.
