Metalcloak bumpers

Anyone have any experience with a company called Metalcloak? I just bought one of thier build it youself bumper systems. Hoping for some good feedback. I know I should have asked BEFORE I ordered the bumper......but it looks pretty cool so I went ahead.

If you ordered a bumper, I would just like to let you know that we have been absolutely overwhelmed with orders on our newly released bumper. Our stock levels are tight until we catch up with the order curve.

If you would call me Doug at 916-631-8071, I will personally keep tabs on your order and pack it myself.

That's cool . . . nice to see the company out there on forums like this making sure things are being handled properly . . . anybody ever seen a Smittybilt rep do something like that!!! Everything I've heard/seen about MetalCloak is positive. I really dig their tube fenders too.

I have to agree with Schmo...it's great to see someone involved with a company that checks out the forums and even offers to help with the packing and shipping! I can't wait to get my bumper. I will keep y'all posted on the progress and put up some pics of it after I install it.

I talked to Doug at Metaltech and he told me my bumper should ship sometime early next week!! So far it seems like a good company to do business with.

I can show you some picks of the JK bumper if you give me at call 916-631-8071. We have not released it to the public yet, but we are selling it at half off to existing customers in order to get feedback. During the feedback process the customer gets free upgrades until the release to public.

Well......somewhere along the line me and Metalcloak got our wires crossed. They have not released the bumper for the 08 JK yet. I found this out after trying to install the bumper!! My JK now has a bumper for a TJ on it! I ended up welding it on as opposed to bolting it on. It actually went on quite easily with some minor modification. I actually very much prefer the fact the bumper is welded on anyway. Not to mention that I guess I am the ONLY JK rolling around right now with a Metalcoak bumper. I tried uploading some pics....hope it works! Help...someone tell me how to upload pics....said the file failed???

Upload it to photobucket first then bring it in. Or you can email the pics to me and I can upload them and bring them onto the site.
