Kennesaw Mountain Accessories

I'm in the market for a new front bumper. I've been looking all over the net and finally found a company that makes a good looking front bumper. Has anybody heard of or delt with Kennesaw Mountian? I know we have a few members that live over in Georgia where these guys are located. Here is the link to their site Kennesaw Mountain Thanks

Wow I used to live ON Kennesaw Mountain! However, this company is based out of Douglasville.

I've never heard of them or dealt with them personally, but their products look great!

I recieved an e-mail back and here is exactly what it said.

Bryan:

This is the pricing and options for your Ranger:

Pricing:

Base model winch bumper or receiver style - $480
As a bumper only - $420

Options:

Grill Guard - $130
Shackle Mounts or D rings - $40 pair
Receiver (with conventional winch style) - $60
Recessed 55 watt offroad lights - $115
Light bar (not shown) - $25

Finishes:

Standard finish is satin black, optional gloss black $25
or aluminum/silver-brite $40. Coat with spray on
bedliner material, $100 additional.

Freight to Phoenix should run about $130 to a commercial address.

Regards,

Kyle
KMAI

Look at the link I posted above to look at a few examples of their stuff. If you have a 2007 Ranger you can get some free stuff if you drop your truck off for a week or so so they can do some test fitting and get measurements. If you're local you just got a free bumper. Their site says $500-$1200+ check out the link LINK MORE TRUCK BUMPER PICS

Off-topic...Isn't Kennesaw the town that enacted the ordinance that every head of household must own and maintain a firearm? lol

That post runner bumper would be totally ghey on a ranger. The ranger needs all the weight in the rear that it can get. A light-wieght bumper like that wouldn't be doing the rear any favors. Besides it's nakedness looks fugly!

They got some sweet bumpers! I'd love to have one of those rear multi-carry bumpers and one of those mean front bumpers. **Checks bank account balance**

Screw that shipping cost. I'd just pick it up in the big rig =]

Might have to get in touch with these guys. The rear bumper is now on my to-do list.....well, to-buy list =]

I was doing some research on the net about these guys and I did find some bad info. One saying that his bumper started rusting only after 1 year, another said the customer service was terrible. Every review I found did mention that you have to drill to mount the bumper so it isn't just bolt on. I lurk some nissan forums and that is how I found out about these guys. I know it's a Nissan but check out the bumpers this guy has on his rig front/rear. It's so clean and beastly!

They're forum attachments, you need an account to view them. You should save em to your com and upload em as attatchments or onto photobucket =]

Save everyone else the hassle of creating an account to look at a couple pics

i have the post runner rear bumper from them and i love it.

the customer service was horrible.

3 months late and they dont answer phone calls.

plus they sent the mounts 2 weeks late, so i fabbed my own.

all in all, great product, but almost not worth it.

those bumpers look good . Did you check out jamesduff.com? They have a nice winch bumper but its for a 97 and older . I haven't looked into it but maybe it could be easily modified to fit ?

If i was you i would hold off and find someone to fab one for you . maybe you could talk to rrp if you dont' know who that is i think you can find them in the vendor forum . They could probably make you one at a fair price but you may have to wait till they have some time. I plan to get some rock sliders for a 1 inch body lift from them sooner or later.

I think I'm going to hold off on these guys. I went to a local off-road fab shop ( LINK ) and they quoted me $2,000 for a bumper in those pics(kennesaw mtn pics). That is just to build the bumper and install plus paint, no winch or anything! I think I'm going to keep looking aroun for another shop. These guys built the Petersons 4 wheel Tacoma so I know their work is quailty but 2grand for a bumper is ridiculous.

You're my hero for knowing this!!!! Yay Kennesaw! Lots of significant things happened in this part of Georgia, but this was by far the most significant in my opinion!!! Georgia also plays a big role in the Castle Doctrine presentation and approval!
