I purchased one from them online a week and a half ago and can’t wait to get mine also.
Did you order a built one or kit?
Ordered it built for cash, no tax and have the tire carrier be on the passenger side to compensate for the full gas tank lean. Mine will be ready May 30th ... I prepayed for it ... Took the cruiser with the cruiser club Im in saturday , and was banging that hitch and the spare under the truck all day , so it'll be a welcome change ! They are literally 5 or so miles from me , so the cash deal worked well , saved a few c notes...

Nice, that’s awesome to hear.
There’s one thing I’m unclear on though regarding the built option. Are the bumpers powder coated or is that something I should be anticipating to have done when I receive mine? Any input is appreciated.

I'd think if it was the non built way , there bare steel , you won't be striking an arc on powder coating . But the built ones are powder coated or you can opt to not having them power coated on the built ones. O opted for powder coating !

Now when I bought my white knuckle sliders I didnt get powder coating because I figured once I slide across the rock the powder coating is gone ... So I just spray them twice a yr with satin black Rust-Oleum and there good !

But figured on the rear bumper there's less of a chance sliding across rocks on most of it , so I thought ok on the powder coating on it !

I agree. I want the bumper powdercoated. I am hoping it is going to be... I think i need to make a call to the shop to verify that is going to be the final result.

Just go to their website and you’ll see. Like I said above, you choose if you want it powder coated or not. You don’t have to hope. Obviously only a choice if you order it built.

does it matter which side the spare is on for lean? I will be ordering one with dual swing outs and 3 jerry can holder, they will remain empty unless on a long trip. I have heavy springs in the rear.
