This one turned out great! I know what my bumper is getting once I get some spare time!

What's the typical turn around time once an order is placed?
Once lifted 03 Trailblazer on 35's, gave it up to travel the USA with my family.

Right now, around 6 months, because of the number of orders (and their complexity) in the que... This is why I take a $100 deposit and then just get the rest before shipping it.

Alright good to know. I guess my only other question then is skid plate and radiator plate turn around. Planning a August trip, so trying to determine budget for what to get know and what goes on the later list. :)

Both skids are usually 3-4 weeks (plus shipping time, of course). Send me a PM for more or specific stuff like this. I don't typically like posting lead times, because they are always changing based on back-log and new orders.

Thanks,
Mike

I was thinking more along the lines of a couples bottles of Crown to get my rear bumper done about the same time as my front one. ;)

Good luck on that working... I'm not drinking anything until this peptic ulser heals in a couple months...

Didn't want to be one of those annoying people who ask 5 million questions and never purchase anything. Going to PM you know. Just wanted to understand your business.
