Overkill Engineering ? Gone? I think so...

Well I have been wanting one of there bumpers for a very long time, so I decided back at the first of the year that I was going to buy it for myself for christmas. WELL! In my investigations I have stumbled across some not so good info that they have went away and were real shady on delivering there product. So I have sent some emails and other means of contact with no results. So I think they are done for real.

Anyway, the bumper I was wanting was the extreme grumpy bumper that Rooster is/was running when his rig was sponsered by overkill. If anybody has a line on a new or used extreme grumpy bumper let me know, otherwise I am going to have to have one made replica style.

Bad news for Overkill. I have their Corner Armor; and it is beefy and just plain tough.

Gabe had a rear bumper carrier listed in Craigslist recently. I believe it is still available. Overkill is about 25 min from me. He is offering custom tube work now.

There may still be some bumpers floating around.

I wanted their corner armor. If you happen by their place and don't mind checking, let me know if they have any 2 door corner armor left. I would appreciate it.

I don't believe he is operating as Overkill any longer, but maybe he will return as Overkill. It appears now that he is doing the custom fab, cage, rock rails, buggy stuff on his own.

It took a couple weeks to get my corners, so I don't believe there was available inventory at that time. Built to order. They were great to work with; excellent communication, quick tracking # given and quality corners.

Yeah, another member said they were great to work with as well. I assume that was right before the demise of overkill. Oh well! I'll either have a local shop fab me a replica extreme grumpy front bumper or just go with another bumper all together. I highly doubt that Rooster would sell his

Looks like they're down again. I like their corners (that used factory tail lights), but wanted them out of Aluminum instead of Steel.

Who else makes corners like that?

They are the only ones that made corner armor for the stock tail lights. One big reason I grabbed a set. They are also super beefy.

Now there is a business opportunity for some enterprising manufacturer....
