PostPosted: Mon Oct 01, 2012 10:33 pm   Post subject: Anyone traveling Reno, NV to San Diego, CA or similar route?

Hi all,

Just bought a Classic Warn bumper and 8274 Warn winch for my project SMB. I'm planning on making a road trip from San Diego, CA to Reno, Nevada to pick it up....unless someone has plans for a similar route from Reno, NV to San Diego, CA and room for a bumper. I would be willing to pitch in for gas/time. Just thought I would put the word out. I traveled to Arizona for a custom rear bumper recently and the fuel cost killed me. Hopefully, this could be a win win. I could meet up to half way. Time frame would be within a month or two. The bumper is 75 3/8" long and ??150 lbs?? Give me a call (619) 917-7873. Thanks, Chris Baffico

Maybe put it on u-ship? I've used it for vehicles with fantastic prices and results. I can't see why why they couldn't toss that in the bed of a truck if towing something along the same route. Should be a lot less than driving both ways.

Thanks for the advice. I just submitted the information and am waiting for the results of the auction. -Chris

I got a really good offer $149.99 Reno to San Diego....It was retracted within 24 hours. I'm not sure what happened. Wish there was a way to contact that service provider to see if it was just a scheduling issue. Uship seems like a good avenue. Still looking for help. Thanks

Got another bid and accepted it. Should have my bumper at the end of the month. Thanks for the Uship idea. :a3: I'll give my feedback on the transaction. Might be a great way to transport items between members. -Chris

Here is the bumper installed on my van. Here is a link to the rear bumper: viewtopic.php?f=7&t=8758&hilit=homemade+bumper

Paid $200 the rear bumper and $395 for the rear bumper. Just couldn't afford the Aluminess bumpers, but happy nonetheless.
