I heard from a reliable source that they are focusing more on drivetrain and gears now to get back to what put them on the map, and that they MIGHT do bumpers again a good ways down the road. Seeing how the ninja gears are just out and stuff that might explain it. Im about to order marlins sliders if they have any in stock, and wait it out. My cheap china bumper will have to do until then. I think that will be the final china thing on my 4runner that I need to get rid of before its all USA/Japan...

True, but after seeing marlins front bumper at the cruiser crawl i was pretty jealous. I like the different sized tubing. Some large some small

If I were buying now I'd probably go with the All Pro from what I've seen that's available.  I really like how it looks.  It's still not as sweet as my Front Range Off Road bumper that is no longer made (I either got the last one or the next to last one).

Yeah youre lucky on that one. I like the like flatter top stingers than the longer rounded off ones, I have the TG front bumper. It came on my 4runner when I bought it... along with some bling bling aluminum wheels haha

Have you looked at Davez bumpers?  I'm hoping to go down there tomorrow and grab a few things, since it's just over a 3 hour drive for me, and was hoping to check out a front bumper if they had one around.  They offer a pointed or flat top stinger option

It is unlikely.  :sad2:

Maybe not so unlikely.  Keep on eye on the website.  There may be some new items coming out soon.

Upcoming bumpers and ETA's were sent out in the Marlin newsletter.  I test fitted a prototype set to my 4runner.  Photos of my runner will be on my build thread, "Trevv's Trunner"  :woohoo: :bananasplit:

I put myself on the list to be notified when the bumpers will be available again due to this.

I went a little too far through the Hungry Valley sluice box practice area and a couple of decent sized rocks touched up the quarter pretty good. The slider stopped those rocks from breaking the passenger door window but, my unprotected assend got a bit mangled.
