I've been in contact with Sarah at Expedition One pleading for a group buy on their bumpers. Below is her e-mail response. I've agreed to post this for them and gather the information to facilitate a group buy. (I've simply cut & paste from their e-mail so I hope all of the links work.)
==================================================
EDIT 2/21/11 - The kind folks at Exp-1 have agreed to extend the GB for 1 week. Now ending 2/27/11! We've met the 15% discount!

EDIT 2/14/11 - I emailed Exp-1 and they have decided to open the Group Buy up to include the rear bumper. "If you want the rear with a carrier the wait time will be longer -- most likely 8 weeks."

Group Buy Announcement:

At Expedition One, we are off-roaders first and manufacturers second. We love the FJ and the fans of our FJ products. Demand for our FJ bumpers is high, And even though they are more expensive for us to build than other bumpers, we have kept the cost where it is as much as possible despite the fact that our costs have continued to climb. Because we have kept the price low, they are not our bread and butter, which requires us to expand our market in other areas, with other vehicles to keep us in business.
We do not have a surplus on FJ bumpers, and in fact, have a hard time providing for the current demand. Due to the interest in a group buy, we are discussing the option. It would require that we do a special run just for group buy order.Ordering a special run of bumpers means another bumper does not get manufactured, and for that reason, a group buy offer would need to come with the following limitations:
1) We would have to limit the group buy to FJ front bumpers only, however, for anyone who orders a front and also wants a rear shipped with it, we would extend the same discount on the rear. Lights are included in the discount pricing.
2) Winch orders can be included with FJFB orders, however, the highest discount available will be 10% regardless of the total number of group buy orders and our free shipping special does not apply to a group buy order.
3) Because this will be a special run, ship date for base bumpers, standard hoop, diamond, and kodiak style will be at least 4 weeks from the closing date of the special. WyoOtto and Bullbar styles will be at least 6-8 weeks.
4) We will only open this opportunity for 1 week beginning Sunday Feb 13th -midnight Sun Feb 20th at these terms:
Forum Members only
10-14 FJFB orders 5% off
15-19 FJFB orders 10% off
20+ FJFB orders 15% off

So that being said, this is our official group buy notice, spread the word. One week only.
Jim S (screen name Mamba184) is going to be facilitating the group buy for us!! Please send him the following details for your order:
1. Name and Screen Name
2. Shipping and billing address
3. Phone # (for shipping company), and email we can send your invoice to
4. Bumper style, light options, powder coat option, any add-ons such as winches, shackles, aux. lights, etc.
Once we have collected all the orders we will send you an invoice at which time you can contact us with payment info or send a PayPal payment. Please do NOT send your order via PM on the forum!!Orders can be sent Sunday February 13th-midnight Pacific time Sunday Feb20th.
We are aware that our website is missing some links and it is under construction at the moment. In the meantime, please refer to our webstore for pictures and pricing: Expedition One LLC

ARGH! I am thrilled... My wallet is not! I am almost certainly going to participate in this but I need to think on ordering the rear bumper too ... and on that note the tire option.

Re: Expedition One - Group Buy (Ends 2/20)

Sounds like Expedition One is plenty busy without making bumpers for FJs. Good for them.

However, considering that my ExOne bumper is rapidly turning into one huge pile of rust on the front of my FJ, I wouldn't lose any sleep over a failed group buy.

Come spring, I'm going to have to remove the bumper and winch, take it somewhere locally to have it sandblasted and powder-coated, then put it all back together again. Not what I was hoping for in a new bumper. :flame:

FYI, I did some research on the powder coating. Expedition One did change vendors a bit ago to a better process.

I'm close to ordering. BTW I was just thinking that this group buy should be mentioned in the group buy section. It would improve the chance of a better discount.

Re: Expedition One - Group Buy (Ends 2/20)

I can't post in the Group Buy section. Perhaps one of the Moderators could help out?
