Customer Review of Revenge Fab Sliders!!

Alright guys, I wanted to write a quick review about the quality that Revenge Fab provides. First off, I'm within a 45 minute drive from Revenge Fab. I asked him last Friday if he could manufacture, paint, and install some sliders for me. Not only did Derek at Revenge Fab give me a quick reply, he also made them that very day, had the paint drying that night, and was literally welding them on the VERY next day!!

I was thoroughly impressed with the quality of all of his welds, and all of the mandrel bends in his sliders. Derek went over everything with me, and showed me some of his current projects he is working on. Let me tell you guys, if you want a custom bumper, sliders, trail armor....he's the guy, for sure. Hey might only have a one bay shop, and basically works by himself, he cranks out some quality stuff!

Not only was Derek an all around nice guy, gave me exactly what he said he was going to, he did it all less than 24 hours! I had only been to Mt Angel, OR a few times, and didn't know my way around. He saw me driving around town looking for lunch afterwards, and even called me and made some reccomendations for some amazing german food! Now THAT is customer service! I know that I'll be back at Revenge Fab for all of my future fabrication needs, I'm already thinking about having him do a lift and front bumper for me!

I just wanted to make sure that the truly good guys get their credit when its coming to them. Thanks again Derek for the awesome work!!

Good to hear! I was going to get some of his sliders, but decided on building my own(they should be done tomorrow, wed at the latest! Whoo!) instead. I just really like doing my own fab work. He does seem to have quality products at awesome prices though! Got any pics straight on from the side of the truck, and underneath the truck too?

Yeah, Derek definitely has some good stuff for great prices. I wish I could make that kind of stuff myself, but having him make it and install it, is almost just as nice

No pics straight on from the side, I'll take some more pics tomorrow when the sun comes up.

Well you can hi-lift the entire side of the truck with these sliders, and I'm not planning on doing any heavy rock crawling or anything, so for ME, anything heavier is just pointless and just some extra weight. Just my opinion though...

Yeah, I figured I was overbuilding mine, but I did it just to be safe. When you're welding something to the frame, you only get one chance to get it right, ya know? LOL

Very true, thats why you either have to know how to weld (all I can do is JB weld), or trust your local fab shop!

Its very nice to be a local guy! Since I had talked to him before the group buy ended, but didn't have a chance to follow up with him until this past weekend, he still honored the group buy price. For manufacture, paint, and install was $215! Again, Its nice to be a local!

That's what I was kinda of thinking as well... I would really like the ARB style, but the Artic is much lighter!

Absolutely! I love the ARB bumper, but dont want the weight, and I'm not planning on mounting a winch to the front of my truck (I'm planning on my 07 as a daily driver, and getting a pre-85 for an off road toy). I still want some sort of front bumper protection/ability to mount some auxilliary lights.

Step one was the sliders, and since I like the way they look, the function, and the quality, I think I'll hit up revenge fab and see if they can't make some front bumper protection for me
