Really like the looks and price of the alien patrol lunar r series, but does anyone have anything good to say about the company? All i here is horror stories. Please help with decision wether or not to go with this bumper or to go ahead and fork over the extra cash for a road armour. They look identical but i dont want to get screwed out of the money i pay for the alien patrol and then still have to pay the big bucks for the road armour on top of that.Any advice would be great the sooner the better because im ready to purchase now.:confused013:

I wish you luck, I hope you are patient. I have nothing good to say so I guess I won't.

My Bumper

I have been out of town for a while. My bumper was delivered to my buddies shop a few weeks ago. My buddies secretary said, "it looks insane"... I'm pretty excited to see it. I'll post a pic soon and then after I get it mounted...

I never called after my order was placed and I think it only took all of maybe 3 weeks to finish my order, give or take a few days, I have been busy and honestly didn't keep track...

My truck's at the shop right now awaiting the arrival of a lunar r. It's been about 3 weeks since it was ordered and the shop said it should be here in a day or two. They'll be painting it and putting it on when it comes in. I'll keep you posted and get some pictures when it's done if you're interested.

Made many phone calls and emails but still nothing. looks like this week is going to be dedicated to fighter for my money back and ordering a road armor.

It’s clear that some people simply refuse to believe posts by members here saying they sent money to Jim Terry/Alien Patrol, and then never received a bumper, or did, but only after threat of getting the police involved. Maybe they will believe the sheriff of the county where Jim Terry lives. He was so fed up with the criminal behavior of Jim Terry/Alien Patrol, he felt compelled to post directly on another truck forum.

Cbchickjr writes on Sept 19th, 2009:
Gentlemen, My name is Charles "Chuck" Chick, with Rio Grande County Sheriff's Office. Mr. and Mrs. Terry actually live in the county outside the municipality of Del Norte, Colorado. The reason he is still defrauding the public is because Colorado State law, handcuffs cops, go figure. According to state law when a contract, which is considered verbal, written or in the event that monies are exchanged, it is then deemed "civil", instead of criminal. My advise? Contact local DA's office @719-567-3670, or the 12th judical district, out of Alamosa, CO 719-657 3691. The DA's name is David Mahoney. If I can help you in any way, call me @ 719-657-4000 during working hours. What has worked well for others? Travelling to Del Norte, request a civl standby from Rio Grande Sheriff's Office, and visit Mr. Terry. I always love the look on his face when we show up.

I called and talked with the sheriff myself and asked “so, just how many people has the sheriff’s department escorted out to Jim Terry’s residence so people could get a refund?” His response:

DOZENS! “more than 20?” I asked, he said “oh yeah, easy”. Hey, you don’t have to believe me - just call and ask him yourself.

there are just too many bad posts about this guy to offset the good ones and justify giving this guy your hard earned money. Its just not worth it! Ive once considered buying from alien patrol, but then i sobered up...!

I have to admit it, my bumper pics are photoshopped can't you tell? :redneck:

Checked out Winch Ready's web site and the designes look like AP & RA? When I'm ready for a rear replacement, I'll give them a shot too... Won't be long...

Funny... I have heard the same exact problems with guys buying from Road Armor. You should probably try a search on them too. I've read about them in plenty of off-road type forums.

that sucks man. sorry to hear that. well as a fabricator i know stuff comes up. but really, if yer customers dont have constant updates or the ability to contact you, what are you doin!

fact of the matter is if he asked for more than half up front and you didnt have a bumper within a month of paying him the full amount, theres no excuse, regaurdless. doesnt matter who you are, if you claim you can deliver, deliver. what i dont get is that its not as if these are even custom bumpers, its the same three designs over and over, and he has the machines to knock em out, wheres the confusion?
