Riccochet Chris, that's a shame. I'm enjoying my bumpers I purchased from you. As well as my boss who purchased his bumpers from you. We've had no issues with the paramount bumpers.
11-21-2013 03:28 PM
JeepAddOns-Chris That is correct. We are no longer offering the line. It's unfortunate because it was a good price point and for the most part, pretty good products. Recently however, if things weren't right, we couldn't provide the quality of service that I expect to be able to give to our customers. That hurt my company's reputation and mine as well. I cannot continue to support that line in good faith.

Thanks, I didn't know that! I do know Carid.com also sells them, but I talked to Chris a lot about pricing, quality, etc.

I agree about ebay, but if you look hard enough, there is a "legit" website usually offering the same thing for the same price (or better).

blackandlime I looked at these and considered them. But im going with the barricade on the extremeterrain.com because its not that much more, there is customer reviews with their pics installed. It just seems like a better option.

WranglerJA My only concern is the light LED's too. What happens if Paramount Restyling is no longer in business, can other LED lights fit in the slots? Can brighter LEDs be installed?

Are the outer ones attached to the fog lamp controls?
Yeah they were under warranty. They are both connected to the fog light controls. Just spliced in together.

Riccochet I have both the front and rear paramount bumpers. Beat the shit out of them off rocks, trees, the ground, you name it. Lost some paint, big deal. Sanded em down and bed lined em. Good as new. They're pretty damn tough for being so cheap. I'd buy them again.

They are doing well. I am changing them out soon because I need a full blown rock crawler bumper but they have been good and for the price they can't be beat.

Okay, old post I know, but I've been considering the same bumper. Is it compatible with the stock fog lamps? It doesn't look like the Smitty XRC are.

Tagg A few minor mods needed for proper install, however for the price, the quality and tech support of the Paramount Restyling bumper is Very Good. I do recommend this bumper and pricing from Chris @ jeepaddons.com @ ext. # 1884. Also their Customer Service @ jeepaddons.com (Susan) is Fantastic !!!

Moonrider I agree with you guys, i'm not going to order from Ebay, glad i found this thread.
06-27-2013 01:44 PM
thomm99 Agree with the last couple of posts. I just talked to Scott and got pricing on a couple of front bumpers. Great prices and seems like a good guy to work with. Now I just need to choose one and pull the trigger. Much more comfortable dealing with a person than eBay.

Call Chris at jeepaddons.com and he can quote you a price probably better than the ebay price and you get a 3 year warranty and proper packaging. Plus they support the forum and know their Jeeps. You can certainly go the other route if you want but I have read some horror stories with bad packaging, crappy powdercoat, shipping wrong bumpers, etc...not my cup of tea!
You'd be crazy to order from ebay and not order from Chris. Listen to BB1857

LoveJiuJitsu Placed my order today. Scott was awesome. Not sure why anyone would order through Ebay with all of the customer support complaints. Seriously, order from Chris' shop!!
04-27-2013 04:33 PM
LoveJiuJitsu I called earlier, but Scott was out today and is supposed to be in tomorrow. Really looking forward to seeing the cost of what I want is, then ordering it up! Mama needs some new bumpers!
