Questions?? T-Bone bumpers

I ordered the T-Bone front bumper and rear wheelie bar at a cost of $50 shipped. Is it worth it to have these or should I cancel the order and save $50? Thanks

imo wheelie bar for sure. i ordered the front bumper also but I don't think it's a necessity. I just like the way it looks better than stock.
btw I ordered mine 3 weeks ago and still have not got any shipment notification. They sure are taking their time.

Totally worth the time and money. Your MT410 will thank you for the investment. I use TBR on most of my rigs and don't regret it one bit.

They are currently working on having the parts in stock and moving away from the made to order method currently. They're in transition at the moment. In the very near future parts will arrive in a much faster time frame than now.

Thanks for the info guys. I ordered mine 9 days ago and was going to send a WTF status email. It's all about communication and I will wait for a great product if needed.

Questions??

The Shockwaves are out of stock till late March or later at Tower. The reason why I must get tires from Tower is that I have their eCash that I want to use. What would be a second choice? Pro-Line Mashers?? Thank you

I am thinking either going with the Badlands MX or the Super Swampers. The Badlands look great on RCWERKZ's truck. Of course that paint job would make any tires look good.

Probably get the Mashers if the Shockwaves are not in on time
