The latest from Calmini is that my bumper came back from powder coating with a "problem," and had to be returned for some rework. Was told it would "probably" ship this week. Today makes 12 weeks since I ordered.

I ordered a Calmini bumper through 4wheelparts and had it in-hand after like 3 days. Try them, they are great.

2000 Frontier XE CC (4x4 parts lift, Eaton rear locker, 4x4 parts skid plate, BFG KO2s, Calmini sliders and bumper, Warn winch, Warn hubs, DT headers & full exh., lots of scratches and dents)
2011 Honda CRZ (stock)

Update: Well, I've called Calmini every two weeks for the last two months, and every time I call, Justin says something like, "...your bumper is at -------, we'll get that shipped out next week..." but it never ships. I suspect they've built the bumper a dozen times already but keep selling it to somebody else for reasons unknown (maybe because I bought at 10% off?). Anyway, if it ain't on a truck by next Wednesday (12/21/2016), I'm calling my credit card company and reversing the charge. I've been extremely patient with Calmini, but 15 weeks (and still no bumper!) for a 4-5 week advertised delivery time is just too much!

Bumper FINALLY arrived (17 weeks after ordering ~11 weeks late!) Arrived with a bare metal spot that looks like someone at Calmini took a grinder to it, then shipped without bothering to repair the powder coat, or even touch it up with a little paint. Also had some abrasions due to poor packing for shipment. I accepted it and installed it anyway. Tired of effin around with Calmini. I like the product, but give the experience as a whole two thumbs down. Here's a pic.

PS: I'm not crazy about the battleship gray color either. On the plus side, if I have the bumper re-powder-coated locally, it will repair the blemishes it left Calmini with.
