    So you guys already know that a few of us on here were waiting on the RESZ Fabrication second generation low profile bumper to come out.

    https://reszfab.com/product/new-resz-fab-low-profile-toyota-tundra-front-bumper-2nd-gen-2007-2013/

    I took it upon myself and call the shop to get first hand knowledge of the production and lead times. I first spoke with the operator and told her the deal, left my contact info and she said the owner would probably get back to me on Monday since he was out of the office and it was near closing time on Friday. But no more than 2 minutes passed and he called me right back, he stepped back into the office as I was hanging up.

    The owner of RESZ fabrication, Mike was great on the phone. I asked him about leads time and a possible group buy for members on here.

    So I know there were two issues people had on here, price and shipping costs. I will get to both shortly.

    First of all pricing, the price is already on sale at 10% off but he created a coupon just for us here for an addition 5% off!

    COUPON CODE

    TUNDRASDOTCOM

    He gave us one month to get these orders in with this coupon code.

    so my shopping cart is the bumper, with powder coating, no lights was 719.96 with the coupon applied it took $36 off! so $683.96 for the bumper powder coated!

    So when people place their orders, use the coupon code and enter tundras.com in the comment box (so he knows where the orders came from) he can keep track of how many we get. If we get 10 orders the discount will jump a addition 5% which he will refund at final invoice.

    I hope that makes sense, so you will place an order and if we reach a certain number of orders the price will fall, resulting in a refund.

    2nd, Shipping:

    So RESZ fabrication uses two different companies for shipping I forgot the names because I was driving and couldn't write anything down. so shipping rates are as follows.

    $270 to your residence
    $190 to your business address
    But there is a third option where the buyer picks up the bumper at the shipping company hub closest to you. He said this could drop the shipping cost to $160ish. you just have to choose the business address delivery option and leave another note that you want to pick it up at the hub and he will refund the difference at final invoice time.

    So to sum it up, place an order use TUNDRASDOTCOM for addition 5% off and choose your preferred method of shipping, if you are choosing to pick up at the hub, also make a note of that. complete the purchase, when the group buy closes, Mike will see if additional discounts apply and/or shipping charges and refund or create a final invoice for the buyer.

    my order came out to be $873 and it can only go down from there! if we get enough for an addition %5 and a few bucks saved on shipping by picking it up from the hub we can get these down to near $800

    let’s go!

    mike gave us a month to gather orders.

    but just talking to him he gave us an extra %5 off no minimum orders with an incentive to get %10 off with 10 orders.

    he also gave us a cheaper shipping option which was most of the complaints on here.

    time to pony up guys!

    edit: I might want to limit guys in SoCal ordering, I don’t want to many look a likes lol

    got to be creative. If you are in a state where they require a front plate (like me) I was either going to mount it under the RESZ cut out. So low on the front bumper or see how it looks in front of one of the tires next to the S2 light cutout.

    Unfortunately Texas requires it and I don't want to take a chance on getting a ticket without it.

    Yeah my state too. That’s why I said get creative on how to mount it.

    a google search for custom front plate mount returned dozens of options of brackets, quick release mounts etc

    Items that should take much less time with Fabrication. I've talk to Mike my self and is a great dude. But he has told me that they are backed up on orders. But talking to his secretary has told me that Mike has got to get better at time frame. Not down talking Reszfab but there length of time is not any time soon. I was originally quoted 3 weeks and now has been 3 months and was told to wait at least 2 more weeks. So will see if I get the parts then.

    I don't want to clutter up this thread too much but does anyone know anything about those tiny little lights in the bumper in the pictures? Do they wire up using the factory fog light connectors? Any link discussing those, or options for them would be appreciated.

    the small holes are built to hold Baja designs s2 lights. I’m going with s2 pros and I will be wiring them up to use the oem fog light plugs. Just a couple splices shouldn’t be too difficult

    Dammit, I talked to the CFO and had her on board. Then, I realized I can’t install one of these on a Limited without cutting the factory bumper. The Limited has a one piece color match. Any workarounds for this? It seems I need a bumper that matches the full contour instead of the flat top these have.

    I’m in the same boat, I have the one piece color matched bumper.

    I am trying to source a color matched top half via eBay or wrecking yards.

    I might even offer mine for trade to someone with a chrome front bumper as long as the upper valance is my color.

    my last resort is trying to cut my one piece bumper

    From what Im finding so far, they only come in resin and are primed. I found them as cheap as 85 bucks on Carparts. I guess I could just rattle can it black to match the bumper finish.

    On a side note, any idea what these bumpers weigh?

    For my back bumper after a bunch of looking around I ended up just doing the Carparts replacement. The primer finish it comes in is sort of a matte black. It was basically already looking how I wanted so I'm just going to leave it and see what happens.

    if you've never bought from Carparts, they hit you with a massive shipping charge at checkout so their prices are not exactly as they seem. I ended up buying from them through Amazon and the delivered price was actually cheaper there.

    According to the vendor, weight on these is 75 pounds. Excellent!

    I found this on EBay, still waiting to hear on the OE specs from Toyota. I’m assuming the upper cover is a primed resin piece. There is no metal option, correct?
