right on, exciting build list, I have always wanted the TAG bumper system but living in northern Canada, not feasible for shipping costs and what not.

Going there to get it installed sounds like a good idea. Between all the missing bolts and parts I still don't have the skid or fog lights installed. At least they only have to walk across their shop if they forget something... Lol

thank you and rcguymike, you have the TAG bumpers installed? what do you think of them?
If I had to do them again I'd go to a local metal shop and get a quote. They took 7+ months to get, had missing hardware and a fog light, no instructions but overall they seem pretty good. All of the important welds seem professional but there are a few less important welds that seem sloppy, but at least seem to have good coverage. The cutouts for accessories and stuff also are pretty ragged. If I had time before winter I might have ground some areas and re-bedlined them. The biggest gripe is customer service, I was told many times, since April, that they would be done in a couple weeks and it didn't come, then when it arrived the skid plate had the wrong mounting holes on the bottom so I have been driving with my radiator, some wiring and cooling pipes exposed. They did FedEx me the missing fog light and a new skid plate but I am still missing hardware and the 2nd skid plate has a mysterious, again ragged, cutout in the top where it should mount to the center bottom of the bumper. I emailed them and they said it's a new update, but I'm not sure what on earth it could be for... If I had to grade them they'd get a D for customer service C for finish, a B for fit and a B for estimated strength/function.
