To be sure, you're No7 on the list, that means your timeline is end-November.

Fabtech coi-overs??? Is that what I'm thinking about? Are you gone the same road after me?

UPDATE

Talked to Steve this afternoon. Unfortunately we have some delay due to the subcontractor who didn't cut pieces well, so Steve had to go with another one.
The first bumper (mine) should be ready by Nov. 20. If everything will go fine on fitting with a new subcontractor the first stage (first production 3) will be ready in the first week of December and the second stage (other 3) by Christmas.
Cross your fingers and we should be able to get a good Christmas present.

Unfortunately you're out of the Group Buy. So you'd have to pay retail price of 1400+600. We're also a little bit behind the schedule, so if you do want to place an order, your bumper will be ready in mid-January - February.

Out of group buy?!? I don't see a post listing a deadline but I do see a post from Nov 5 saying there's been another delay. What gives?

This Group Buy was for introduction of this product to the market. Most of the people in the list if not all of them were helping in design process of this product by participating in debates and figuring out best ways to solve problems when designing this bumper.
I don't know when the next Group Buy will be starting. May be next Christmas. It’s all depending on the number of people want it. If we get another 10 orders, it will be worth of a try.

Is this the delay we knew about already or a new one? Just checking, for those of us waiting with baited breath!

As for the rice at full pop..........not bad considering. Go look at FJ80/FJ100 bumpers.

This is the same delay we were talking about.
The first production bumper (mine) is in powder-coating. Looks like everything went well on assembling. This means that Steve will start working on first production series (2nd-4th) this week. It may take him approximately 2 weeks. By that time the first bumper should be back from powder-coating for final verification. If everything will go fine, which I hope will be; first series will go to powder-coating and the second series (5th-7th) to assembling.
Now the bad news. Powder-coating company is due on their work and they have a line-up. At the time when Steve shipped mine to them the line-up was 10 business day which means 2 weeks. So, I hope that the bumper will back from them to the shop next week. This can also mean that all other bumpers may be delayed for a week in powder-coating. The second thing is that as of last week AT can holders were backordered for 4 weeks. This means that at the time my bumper will be ready for install, I wouldn't have them on, but by the time your bumpers ready Steve should get them.

Just got a call from CBI. Looks like mine (second batch) is planned to ship Dec 17th. The woman was very nice, and said they had issues with Powder Coat and procuring the gas can attachment. The expect the gas can attachments in stock before powder coating apparently. She said, worst case, they had all of the measurements for the gas can attachment so al the holes will be drilled etc. They would ship the bumper and tire carrier minus the gas can attachment, and ship that as son as they received it. I thought that was great news, why hold everything on that one little part. Great service! I cannot wait to get mine, talk about a nice xmas!

UPDATE:

Bumper #2 will go to powder coating Monday, December 24.
Bumper #3 will go to powder coating Monday, December 31.
Due to the Christmass holidays, the turn around time with powder coating may exceed 1 week, so shipping of the first series can take place mid-January.

Many things should be checked and rechecked on #1 installation which should be done by this Friday. Final test fit and aligment should show if everything is in the place its suppose to be.

I picked-up the bumper this morning from the shiping company. We've done some initial measures, fits and installed it this afternoon. Everything worked out well, so you guys have green lights on the bumpers. I've talked to Steve and we discussed some details. I'll be posting notes later this week.
