    I have sheet of 1/4 inch, I'm going to plate and gusset the important areas, and buy a few feet of DOM for the prerunner tubes.
    You're saying that L&L sent you the bumper?

    3/16" steel plate for bumpers is pretty much industry standard you have to remember what you are bolting it to... two or three layers of 16-18G steel.

    The same goes for HREW vs DOM, unless they are using anything thinner than .120 I don't see the use of HREW an issue.

    I'm fully plated in 1/4.

    Perhaps it is the industry standard... Just looks thin to me - especially that hrew pipe.

    Also, just because it's industry standard doesn't mean it lives up to my standards. 3/16 as a winch plate looks like its going to rip right off.

    flux0r ... at least you got the bumper, for what it's worth. Hopefully, 325. Maybe, you got the one that I was supposed to be coming my way. But it sounds like you ordered before I did. Maybe I was a bigger pest.

    I don't know man. I was professional the whole time, gave him many many chances to be truthful, ultimatums... send me a bumper in flatpack, all sorts of . until the last email when i told him that i didn't have something by X date, he could expect some communication from a lawyer and made comment that i'd gladly spend triple(and more) what his bumper cost's to make his life painful.

    Am i an asshole? yeah, a little. In life, you live up to your commitments, or you GTFO.

    Pretty much did the same and told him the same. I know there is at least one more person out there that had contacted me about having the same issue. Hope it all works out for him, as well.
