Rear bumper w carrier input needed

After ordering from Jeep String u along in KY (never again). I am again shopping for a rear bumper and carrier again. I had a Paramount on order, and needless to say after calling Jeep addon 20 plus times with no call returned (on hold, voice mail ect.) I also called Paramount directly and they keep telling me they never received a P.O from them. Almost two weeks wasted, and Paramount has them in stock and ready to ship.

I finally received a refund from the only person that can get anything done (Thanks Susan).

I know a lot of peeps here will say don't buy a bumper that cheap. And you will need to spend grand to get anything good.

I just have a hard time spending that much for a bumper and carrier.

Do you guys have a better idea for $750. and under???

Thanks Smitty

Sad to hear your experience. I was planning on ordering same bumper from same distributor. Now i need to do more research. I was also looking at Smittybilt XRC rear bumper with tire carrier or without. They seem to be in cost effective zone compare to other brands. I ve seen them in person and really liked them. I have currently their rock sliders and finish looks nice.

I'll bet what is going on here is that the distributor gets a discounted price by ordering several bumpers, instead of just one bumper. So he has the OPs bumper order sitting there, waiting for other orders he can add to it before placing the actual orders.

When i ordered the Paramount Bumpers from Chris @ jeepaddons.com the service was GREAT. The bumper was on my doorstep 2 days before they it would ship from KY.

HOWEVER, the last time about 3-4 weeks ago, I purchased a switch pad and Chris told me that it was in stock and would ship the next day. I waited about 7 days and contacted their Customer Service (Susan). She checked the order and advised that it would be another 10-14 days for switches to ship !!! Susan is Great, I advised her to cancel the order and there was not a problem. Haven't placed another order since, and we have 3 Jeep Wranglers that are always being upgraded. 2007-2012-2013.

SOMETHING Must be Going on in KY. They are No Longer PRICE MATCHING other sites which they would previously do on other orders without a problem.

What price did they want for the bumpers and tire carrier ?

Whats up with you guys in KY ???

If that's the way it works, someone else is waiting on there's. What a joke..

The bumper and carrier was $496.xx shipped, you can offer it for any price if you never ship it..
