Welcome all HIGH-ROLLERS. The stadiums aren’t the only things luxurious & BIG in Texas. Check out this sick PLATINUM ride. This truck is for you. Come get it!
TruckU recently built a big Ford Superduty, incorporating RBP wheels, exhaust, steps and grill into the project. The video features good information on how easy it is to install these products and will give you a sense on how they might look on your lifted F250. Sorry that some of the commentary is cheezy and the fist bump is unnecessary. Hope this is helpful. To view the video: visit http://truckutv.com/?p=5238
We thought you would enjoy this video on how to install an RBP RX3 grill. You’ll find that it’s pretty easy to install and has a material impact on the way your front end looks. Hopefully this helps truck owners realize that adding a billet grill shouldn’t be that intimidating. You should be able to install it over the weekend on your own. Style has never been easier to obtain for your lifted truck.
Did you know that RBP makes suspension lifts? If not, then you should visit RBP’s website. You will notice that they carry a 6″ suspension lift for Toyota, Ford, and GMC as well as 6″-8″ lifts for Chevy trucks. RBP’s suspension lifts will run you around $2,000 – $3,000 depending on the suspension lift you purchase. The big question is: should you buy an RBP suspension lift instead of buying a lift kit from an established company like Fabtech, CST, Cognito or Rize?
In doing a little digging, we’re not sure the RBP suspension is very differentiated from Fabtech. Take a look at the photos below:
Do they look similar? Yes, in fact, they look exactly the same except the Fabtech name has been replaced with RBP. There’s nothing wrong with this, as it’s similar to non-branded products in the grocery store. One product is packaged with a brand name and color (making it more expensive), while the same product has the name of the grocery store on it (usually less expensive). Both products are manufactured by the same company with the same ingredients, they are just “branded” differently. There’s no difference, you are just paying for a brand name.
That’s what appears to be happening here. RBP is likely using Fabtech parts, just branded with the RBP name. Therefore, if you can get an RBP suspension lift cheaper than Fabtech, it’s probably worth buying. If you can find Fabtech cheaper, then go that route. The RBP suspension lift should perform similar to Fabtech, so if you don’t care about the name, go with the least expensive product. And if you don’t like Fabtech, then probably avoid RBP too. Hope that helps.
We came across this posting the other day on DuramaxForum.com regarding RBP grills. The owner describes how his girlfriend bought him an RBP grill for his Chevy truck as a Christmas present. After it was purchased, he noticed a crack in one of the rivets, but like most of us, forgot about the minor problem until it turned into a major problem. After more time passed, the grill began to blister, peeling, and rusting on the inside. After talking to RBP, they explained that the grill only had a one year warranty and couldn’t help, not even a discount on another grill.
Obviously, no company can stay profitable if they were to warranty products to infinity. At the same time, there’s something to be said about helping a guy out who noticed the problem early, just never got around to contacting the manufacturer. At SoCalTrucks.com, we believe that if you sell a premium product, you should stand behind it. People don’t pay a premium at Nordstrom because their clothes are that much better; they shop there because Nordstrom stands behind their products and has great customer service. We were surprised to hear RBP acting more like JC Penney and less like Nordstrom.
We’ve always thought highly of RBP and one bad example doesn’t change that, but we’ll be on the look-out for more examples like this. Let’s hope the trend doesn’t continue. Click here to read the entire forum post.
