    Still trying to decide between ARB or C4 Overland with full height bar. C4 is only 2 hours from my house. 20201017_093836.jpg

    You're going to have to wait for the C4. 2 1/2 months. Maybe more. I ordered mine mid August with an ETA of November 8.

    I would say always stay local. Screw the big box company. Especially in that state. There’s only like 500 of you.

    Haha!
    I like the thought of more front end coverage of the ARB, but the C4 looks pretty slick. Plus I can pick it up myself, find a powder coater, and won't need to worry about freight damage

    I just pulled the trigger on the front and rear overland bumpers. Now I'm waiting. I watched their install video. Any gotchas on installation??? Does anybody have pictures of the rear overland bumper?
    Thanks

    Pic courtesy of @danb708. Do a search for his name. His white (it’s okay to be slow) build pics will give you all the motivation you need to convert money into metal.

    @danb708, what wound you say the benefits are of the C4 rear bumper versus stock?

    But the front end has already lured them in.

    These are the best looking bumpers out there IMHO.

    I think I would have to agree.

    The Victory one is very similar, and I was going to go with it because their hoop doesn't block the TSS on the regular grilles. (the only downside the the C4 bumpers) Two issues came up on the forum with some of Victory's products, and they handled both very poorly. Their utter lack of response and incorrect installation instructions were the final straws that bumped them completely off the list for me. I don't care what they make, or how cool it looks, I have lost all faith in the Victory name.

    It’s not just you.
    I fee bad sometimes when someone will say @C4 Fab takes ten weeks to get a bumper?!?!? Well, yes they do. You know why? Because the holes for your bolts will actually line up. And, if they don’t I guarantee they will fix it unlike other companies that have proven they will not. I will gladly wait ten weeks for a massive part that is hand crafted by northern elves in a secret shop just for that one bolt hole to line up actually.

    Anyone that has the C4 bumper and a winch mounted inside, where did you relocate your control box to?
    Trying to determine if I need the short or long relocation kit for a warn winch, C4 mentioned possibly fitting it next to the winch but I don't see how there would be much room to do so.

    @Elfine has one and has stated he did not need any sort of relocation kit and he did not need to move the control box. He has a Warn also but I can’t remember what model.

    Lots of do-dads.


    It’s always amazed me that folks will search months and months for that one perfect bumper, find the one they like, then change their minds because it’s going to take longer than 3 days to get it.

    Wholeheartedly agree. I won’t work with a company that provides poor customer service. There is no excuse these days with all the tech in place to get back to someone, even if you don’t have the answer.

    I am running the Warn Evo VR12S. There are a couple others on here with Warns as well. There is no need to relocate the box, the cable plug and clutch are still accessible via the access holes in the bumper. Even if it is under water... 158.jpg

    Awesome I was only really concerned with the height of the winch with control box wouldn't fit under the metal plate going across under the grill, thats what C4 alluded to and said it would require relocation.
    Not too concerned with water, they are rated for it and the truck has other area's of bigger water depth concerns before I worry about a winch. I am going with a Warn Zeon 12-S so hopefully it fits just as well as the Evo 12S. Where did you run the wires up to battery through?

    I ran them behind the driver's fog and then straight up beside the battery. It was close but they made it.
