Don't have any pics of the brake light but here is the rear step bumper. I'll post pics of the ARB once it's done.

They have a quick turn around time, usually less than 3 days (when scheduled). I will contact the guy about a D-90 discount.

My experience is 4-5 days. I drop off on a Monday and pickup by Thursday/Friday.

They mostly do large orders of metal parts so it depends what they have going on.

Did you change your name? So weird. Before I click on the thread it says Darkside then when I come down to your post it's Shep29 - I'm so confused.

I take it back. They did good work up until this last project of my ARB bumper. Took me 4 trips back and forth to be happy with the finish. Their quality control and inspection sucks. And their customer service is even worse. Never again.

Peerless is a week past promised delivery. Went out this morning and, again, parts not ready. Got the bullshit jersey spiel. Owner tried to show me parts but couldn't find them. I did. Brush bar looks poorly stripped. Maybe ready tomorrow but I have little faith.
Not a well run operation.
