Question The Steel Armadillo/Crawl Offroad.

Anybody know where a49erFan has been the last few months?

I also noticed the Steel Armadillo & Crawl Offroad websites are both down......anybody heard from him lately or have some insight as to what's going on?

http://thesteelarmadillo.com/

https://crawloffroad.com/cart.php?ta...&category_id=3

I've had a couple of members ask me, wanting to know why the websites aren't up & running, which is why I'm raising the issue. I've also PM'ed a49erFan directly.

Any input or feedback would be appreciated, so I can pass the information along, thanks.

Any mention of how long that's been going on?

And when they may be getting it fixed?

I PM'd him on facebook the other day to ask if he was still planning to produce the South African bumper and he replied that he was.

That's good to hear Tom, thank you.

Did he by chance give you any kind of time-line?

So just to clarify for anybody who reads this, both websites are back-up and running;

http://thesteelarmadillo.com/

https://crawloffroad.com/cart.php?ta...&category_id=3

And the Commander custom front bumpers are still set to be produced - but no date of availability has been announced.

Thanks for the assist Tom.

I'm itchin to find out more about these. That wam bumper of yours is looking awfully nice, but according to their facebook page the SA bumpers are made in San Diego which is much closer to me. Guess I'll play the wait and see game.

Jeep5253 --thanks again for the PM confirmation that these bumpers are to be the same as the ones produces by Maniac 4x4.

Any word if these are still in works...?

My apologies to everyone else as I publicly get up to speed on this topic. It's been a challenge to find bumpers I really like, and this design is my favorite so far, so I'd be totally stoked to see them produced. An aluminum version would be even that much better...
