No affiliation, but if you could haggle even a little bit with the guy it could be a pretty decent deal.
I am getting $3,910 when priced new:
Aluminess Bumper w/ bike rack - $2,950
Aluminess Fuel Locker box - $295
Aluminess Expedition kit - $225
2xThule UpRide racks - $440
"Needs Paint/Powdercoat" is a YMMV type of thing. Some might be happy with just some rattle can paint to cover up any bare spots.
Now if you don't need/want the bike racks, open box, expedition kit then yeah you can definitely get a new bumper cheaper.
But if you could get it for $2,900, then you are saving $1000 bucks and that is pretty good as far as Aluminess stuff is concerned.
All of this is armchair advice of course. I am not anywhere near this thing and it could be a total wreck when someone sees it in person.
