If you really like the bumper, the time flies by relatively quickly and 12 weeks is probably just so they look like hero's when it arrives several weeks early. I waited 8 weeks for my rear LOD bumper and its been awesome.
Theres a lot of good looking bumpers on the market right now. I am really liking the products from VKSFab and CrawlerConceptz.
I bought a Shrockworks rear bumper a few months ago. I think they have speeded up delivery. Mine took 4 weeks from day of order to day of delivery. they are made in Texas I live in Montana. It is solid as can be and man do they know how to package them for freight. Could have delivered it airmail dropping it from the plane and not done any damage.
I called and the owner said he could guarantee delivery and he did.
