I ordered mine from the Buckstop WEB site and had them delivered. They did tell me the last time I talked to them that they were working on getting a dealer in Ft Worth.

I love the Classic. I too looked hard at the Outback but it stuck out another 2-3" in front and besides I'm just a Classic kind of guy :D.

When you gonna stop fooling around an bite the bullet and buy one. It's only money.:eek:

i didn't know the outbacks stuck out more. ive only seen one buckstop in person in my life and it was an outback.

idk man, i just saw these bodyguard bumpers, kinda like them. i could get a front and rear replacement with lights on front and back, and a reciever and d rings up front for like 400 less than i could a buckstop classic lol

No the step did not come with it, I bought the step a year ago from Amp-Research. The step sure saves this old man's knees when getting in and out of the bed.

That looks great, a couple of questions though.

Did your truck have backup sensors, is there any provision for them on the Buckstop?
How are you gaining access to the spare tire lift mechanism?

Looks sharp!

Once, you placed the order online, what was they're turnaround time?
From order to delivery was 4 weeks on both the front and rear bumper.

My truck did not have backup sensors, those are for socker moms. It's a steel bumper, so what if I back into something, it ain't gonna hurt me. :D

There is a hole to the right of the license plate for the spare tire crank down rod. I am going to see if I can fab a tube to quide the rod to the crank cam.

That would work for the two near the backup lights. To handle the two near the hitch would require some fab and welding which would mess up the powder coat. It would be best if Buckstop could fab it before powder coat - a lot less costly than doing it after the fact.

Oh man...I am so gonna have to bite the bullet. Driving regularly from Barrie, Ontario to Timmins/North Bay and Sudbury. This is significant Moose/Deer and black bear country. Hit one of those critters and it could be all over for me let alone the truck.

And I so do love the look of the buckstops. I agree that they are the best looking ones on the market.

Baja style for me... BLACK baby.!! comin sooner than later methinks.

I love it... a "Buck-Stop" rear bumper...

While I have never had the experience of smashing a deer while in reverse... I am sure it would be quite amuzing!
