    Well here is a copy of an e-mail I just got from carparts.com:
    ______
    Dear Valued Customer,

    We have received your order for a "Smittybilt Bumper". We regret to
    inform you that at this time we are unable to find an available source of
    supply for the product that you ordered.

    We know the cancellation of this order is a great inconvenience for you.
    Please accept our apologies, unfortunately the manufacturer has this part
    on back order and is not scheduled to ship until the beginning of 2001.

    Again we apologize and look forward to your next visit to Carparts.com!

    I am really pissed off right now! I need you guy's help, I really want this bumper. It is smittybilt part number RB13-F a Smittybilt Front Pre Runner Bumper. Does anyone know of a good place online that sells smittybilt stuff? I have found a place www.pickuptruckacessories.com that has it for $225 + shipping I think. 4 Wheel Parts has it but 1. I don't really want to order from them. 2. They wanted $40 to ship it.
    If you know of a place that sells smittybilt stuff for a reasonable price, will u please let me know. Thanks!

    ***Who ever has JC Whitney seat belts in their rig, will u please contact me, I just got my 2nd set from them in the mail and they don't work. I want to talk to you. I know someone has them. Thanks!***

    Dawson,

    I gave you a guy's name with 4wheel parts in California. He will do you a good job, give him a chance. It's really easy to sell stuff cheap, especially if you don't have it. If you need the #'s again, e-mail me.

    What ya'll think, should I give 'em a chance? Won't they like beat prices? If they sent me the wrong one, you think they would pay for me to ship it back to them? Thanks!

    You really don't have anything to be pissed off about. They were honest and up front, what do you want them to do, send something that they do have that doesn't fit?

    Re: I\'m pissed off, I\'m pissed off, I\'m pissed off today, hey hey hey

    First off, I saw a smittybuilt bumper that was in the radiator of a chevy truck, the guys wife was going down an icy road at around 20 MPH when her truck got hit from the rear from someone who was going too fast, turned her anglewise and headed her straight for a tree! OUCH you would think that a good tube bumper would bend but not crease and break at that speed with a 1/2 ton puckup, no canopy and the other car was already disconnected from her, NOPE! that bumper was mangled and into the radiator was shot, the mounting plates were ripped off the bumper from bad welds it looked like to me, and the frame was straight as a whistle.

    Maybe Fredd could build you a nice tube bumper for your rig.

    I saw one on EBAY for $100. It includes some ProComp lights too. You might want to check it out. Hope this helps.

    BLAZE IT UP!!!

    <font color=blue>Well you would at least think that they would give you some kind of discount/free shipping or something on your next order, if you ever decide to order from them again. - Steve</font color=blue>
