Default MBRP Off Camber Fabrications Line-X Bumpers

Hey everyone,

The company just purchased a Line-X franchise and did a test run on our Off Camber Fabrications bumpers. We did a stubby front, a full width winch mount front bumper and a rear bumper. I'd like some honest opinions on them because we are trying to decide if we should do this as a production option. Would you pay the extra to have the Line-X on them?

There are some imperfections on these bumpers as this is the first time we've done anything like this. We do have a stubby on a customers 2011 that is flawless so it can be done.

Some advantages with the Line-X is that it won't stone chip or rust and makes the bumpers a little more scratch and dent resistant.

Please be honest in your feedback.

Line-x, or any other professionally applied bed liner is a great addition to any bumper or trail armor. As long as you can keep the extra cost below what the consumer would pay to have it done elsewhere I say go for it.

I guess my next question is to who ever has had their bumpers done.

What did you pay to get it coated?? dosen't matter on the brand of coating but line-x would be more accurate

What are the rates for US line-x ing?? as we are in Canada and I know it's a total different ball game up here.

Was it inside and out?? on the test units we did inside and out.



thanks for the intrest

Scott

How strong is the line-x? I had the inside of my tub done and it has held up, but what about bumping into trees or rocks? If I have a scratch in my bumpers I can spray bomb that area after fixing the damage, and it looks new again. What happens if the line-x is damaged or scratched, how can you fix that? Do you have to strip the bumper and start over? Sounds expensive.

Or are the majority of the people who buy bumpers keeping them on road?

I had my smittybilt rear rhino-lined for about $160, I think. Just the outside, only had it a couple months, so the durability is still in question. My front stinger was done when I bought it. It has held up to one Michigan winter so far with only some fading. The po said it cost him around $100.

If the surface is properly prepped the spray on stuff is supposed to be pretty indestructible. I think it's a way better option than powdercoating. I'm planning to do my side armor and corners when I have the money

So we've worked out our costs and all that's involved and we are thinking the line-x option being a $100 upgrade. We are doing the testing on one of the bumpers we did as we speak just to see the result of impacts as well as keeping them clean. We've sprayed these units with the premium coating so it's not as porous as the regular line-x in hopes of it not getting clogged with mud and sand.
