WTB: Fuel Swing-out for Renuel rear bumper

It seems that Renuel is out of business, so I need to find a used one. Anyone have one for a 2003 E350?

Re: WTB: Fuel Swing-out for Renuel rear bumper

Hmm, that's news to me about Reunel, saw several bad reviews of their bumpers on diesel bombers and a few other sites now that I just went looking. Seems they went through bankruptcy several years ago at the same time they were taking people's money and not delivering, that's not good!
Anyway, as I posted up in the other thread, I have a reunel rear bumper that I added their swing away can carrier to years ago, actually, we went to their factory in Maxwell on a west coast trip years ago and had them install it, they were still a little bitter that SMB dropped them and made sure to comment on my front Aluminess. I'm adding the deluxe box by hacking off the sides of the can carrier and adding a support frame to bolt it up to, I hope it works. I'm sure there is a way to retrofit an Aluminess box to any bumper, all you need is a bumper mount post. I'll add a pic

Worst case scenario, I can build something. I build a swing-out tire carrier for my last truck. I just would prefer the matching pair. I hope someone as one. I have tried calling and emailing with no luck. I saw the bad reviews as well.

The funny thing is SMB took the aluminum design to them first to have them do it but they wanted nothing of it and seeing how Alumines did the prototype they became a new manufacture of the bumpers

I drove by their factory end march and all is closed, the grass is growing on the lot.
To bad as I needed some parts.
