Update: New pics of bumper, and pricing on 2nd gen plate bumpers has been lowered.
A web site is in the works, here is the landing page with contact that directs questions directly to my email.
Some of you may have seen some of my fabrication work in the past, now I'm trying to turn my hobby and love for fabrication into an official business in the coming month or so as my 3rd year in college comes to an end. I want to see how much interest there is for my products in order to determine whether it is feasible for me to start a new business that will support me and my continuing education during this state of the economy. Please respond in this thread with your level of interest in my products if you would consider yourself in the market for anything I've listed. Thank you for looking.
Some of my planned products include:
2nd gen Tacoma:
-3/16" steel plate bumpers. $750 base price with the 1st 10 orders at a special price $700, recessed fog light mounts for 4" Piaa's- $50 extra, tube light bar/guards additional ($$ tbd). Weighs in at 100-105lbs. (pics of my prototype here and here and here)
-Tube bumpers, and hybrid tube/plate bumpers. ($$ tbd)
-Front hidden winch mounts ($250-300 base price?)
-2" tubular rock sliders, and hybrid rectangular/round sliders. ($300-400/set?)
-Fabricated plate rocksliders/step rails($400-500 range?). (think running boards that can actually support the truck, tucked nice and tight with the body for a clean look)
-Skid plates: Front diff/oil pan, transmission, t-case and gas tank skids. (also an integrated front bumper and front skid combo for a nice smooth surface and clean look is planned!)
-Misc. bed bars, hi-lift bed mount brackets, hi-lift off road bases, bed tie down brackets, Mountain bike mounts, etc.
-Diamond plate aluminum Tailgate reinforcement covers(just like on my own truck, pic in my build thread), and bed rail caps
1st gen Tacoma products will also be designed as I can get my hands on 1st gen trucks for some R&D of new products.
All products will be top quality mig welded, and CNC water jet cut plate where appropriate. I can also customize my products to whatever demand there is, special logos cut in them, thicker or specialized materials, etc. Contact me with your request and we can discuss the price.
I hope to set a name for myself with quality products, awesome customer service and quick production, all at a competitive price. Member group buy discounts will be given for enough demand of certain products at one time.
(thank you stroM- for help with designing the logo!)
