Saw that cip1.com has the truck mirrors on sale for 134.99 each, free shipping and no sales tax. I got mine from them way back. This is a great price compared with the more familiar places at $175 plus tax and shipping.

I couldn't tell you what other things they do Vanagon wise as their website is a hot mess. If anyone knows of parts they do well on or carry hard to find, please share!

Their heavier-gauge rear bumper has worked out for me so far. (Although I haven't hit anything...yet.)

Ordered a set a few days ago. They have other vanagon parts but sometimes it's easier to look up the part number off site and then use their search to find it.

Thanks for the pic. I ordered those same emblems to replace the original all black mine have. Looks good!

Because I just have to ask.

Anyone know of a discount code for cip1.com?

Have the truck mirrors in the cart.

Thanks

Rich

Huh, is it actually notably heavier than a stock bumper? I've always wished there was a bumper option that was basically the stock profile but stronger, to be used with the endcaps.

It's noticeably heavier than the dainty aftermarket black steel bumpers, and about the same weight as the OEM chrome ones.

Wow, seriously...

I just bought some. Something I've wanted to get for a while but seemed a bit much through the 'usual' retailers.

For comparison:

cip1.com: $269.98 for a pair, shipped

Gowesty: $376.80 after tax and shipping... over $100 more!
